    • Jayson Tatum BOS SF
      Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Likely to be available for Game 7
      10m ago

      Tatum (head) will continue to be evaluated for a concussion before Game 7, but coach Brad Stevens noted that there is "nothing...to be concerned about," Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

      Tatum hit heads with Kevin Love during Friday's Game 6 loss, but Love got the worse end of things, as he's been ruled out for Sunday's Game 7. Tatum, on the other hand, appears to be probable for the contest. He's averaging 16.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals in the series while shooting 48.6 percent from the field and 35.0 percent from beyond the arc.

      Warriors' Patrick McCaw: Expected to be activated
      1h ago

      McCaw (back) is expected to be available for Saturday's Game 6 against the Rockets, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

      McCaw has been in street clothes since injuring his back on March 31 as a result of a scary fall. He put in solid run for Golden State during the regular season, seeing 16.9 minutes per game and averaging 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 combined steal/block. With Andre Iguodala's (knee) status still in question, it's possible coach Steve Kerr finds a spot to utilize McCaw during Game 6.

      Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Will not play in Game 7
      2h ago

      Love (concussion) is out for Sunday's Game 7 against Boston, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

      Love was placed in concussion protocol early Saturday afternoon, with team doctors quickly shutting down any hope that he would be available for Game 7. Love played in Friday's Game 6 victory for just five minutes before hitting heads with Jayson Tatum, forcing him out of the contest. As a result, LeBron James ended up playing all but two minutes of the contest, dropping 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and a block. Off the bench, Jeff Green saw 31 minutes, posting 14 points, three rebounds, two assists and two blocks. Larry Nance played 22 minutes, registering 10 points, seven rebounds, two steals and an assist. If Cleveland can pull out a victory Sunday, Love's next chance to take the floor would arrive Thursday, during Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

      Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Enters concussion protocol
      2h ago

      Love (head) is in concussion protocol and is traveling with the Cavs. He has not been ruled out for Sunday's Game 7 in Boston, but his status is in doubt, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

      Love was not immediately placed into protocol Saturday morning, but his symptoms may have changed as the day went on. With just one day to recover, the odds don't appear to be in Love's favor to take the floor for a crucial Game 7. If he's ruled out of the contest, Jeff Green (31 minutes in Game 6) and Larry Nance (22 minutes) would likely be the main beneficiaries. LeBron James played 46 minutes.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Plays 33 minutes in Game 6 loss

      Smart mustered 10 four points (4-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, one steal and one block across 21 minutes in Friday's 109-99 ECF Game 6 loss in Cleveland.

      The Marcus Smart roller coaster received extra run during this lopsided loss on Cleveland. With Boston trailing for the last three quarters, coach Brad Stevens turned to Smart and Marcus Morris for major minutes, hoping to spark a comeback run that never quite materialized. Smart was his usual erratic self, with a breathtaking block of a LeBron James dunk attempt, three ugly turnovers, questionable shot selection, but eight impressive, team-leading assists. Smart and his teammates now return to Boston for a battle royale, winner-take-all Game 7 on the parquet floor. Look for Smart to again receive monster minutes for the injury decimated Celtics.

      Baynes eked out zero points, four rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes in Friday's 109-99 ECF Game 6 loss in Cleveland.

      Baynes saw most of his minutes in the first half and was unable to recreate the magic he delivered when he returned to the starting lineup for Game 5. With the C's down for the entire second half, Baynes stayed on the bench while coach Brad Stevens turned to higher scoring options. (The Big Kiwi did see some garbage time at the very end.) This series has been dominated by the home team. For the three games in Boston, Baynes averaged four more minutes per contest versus the matches in Cleveland. Baynes and his teammates now return to Boston for a do-or-die Game 7 Sunday night on the parquet.

      Celtics' Al Horford: Disappointing Game Six effort

      Horford totaled just six points (2-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one block in 37 minutes during Friday's 109-99 loss to Cleveland.

      Horford was a no-show Friday as the Celtics were unable to secure the series, now having to travel home for a Game Seven on Sunday. Horford, along with a number of other Celtics, has been much better on his home floor and he is going to need to keep this trend going if they are to advance to the NBA Finals. Look for Horford to be much better on both ends of the floor in what should be an epic finale for what has been a topsy-turvy series.

    • Clint Capela HOU C
      Rockets' Clint Capela: Double-doubles in Game 5 victory
      1d ago

      Capela generated 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-5 FT), 14 rebounds and two blocks across 27 minutes during Houston's 98-94 win over the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference Finals playoff series Thursday.

      It was Capela's seventh double-double of the postseason overall, and his third game of the series with double-digit rebounds. The fourth-year big man could see a significant bump in usage in Saturday's Game 6 if Chris Paul (hamstring) remains sidelined, an increased level of responsibility he's demonstrated aptly capable of handling on countless occasions this season. Factoring in Thursday's production, Capela sports solid averages of 10.0 points (on 70.0 percent shooting), 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 assists across 26.8 minutes over five games against Golden State.

      Celtics' Aron Baynes: Impactful play despite low numbers
      2d ago

      Baynes contributed six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 victory over Cleveland.

      Baynes was reinserted into the starting lineup for Game Five and had a nice impact on both ends of the floor. He faded late but was crucial to the Celtics gaining the early lead with some strong rebounding and rim protection. It remains to be seen whether he stays in the starting lineup for Game Six, but nonetheless, he will need to repeat his strong play if the Celtics are to wrap up the series on Friday.

      Horford had 15 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 victory over Cleveland.

      After a couple of howlers, Horford bounced back on Wednesday, helping the Celtics to an important Game 5 victory. His numbers don't jump off the page but he was big late with some crucial rebounds and a dagger three-pointer late in the fourth quarter. The series now heads back to Cleveland and the Celtics would love to wrap things up rather than head home for a Game Seven. Horford will need to rally the young troops in the hope they can find some form on the road, something they have struggled to do so far this series.

      Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Non-factor in Wednesday's loss
      3d ago

      Thompson finished with just one point to go with six rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 96-83 loss to Boston.

      After some strong performances of late, Thompson fell flat on Wednesday with a terrible Game Five effort. He had managed to keep Al Horford in check across both games in Cleveland but was unable to repeat this here as Horford certainly had the better of the matchup. In fact, Aron Baynes also managed to have a strong performance as Thompson was rendered obsolete. He will need to bounce-back on Friday if the Cavaliers are to stave off elimination and force a Game Seven back in Boston.

      Love (head) has not been placed in the league's concussion protocol after a collision with Jayson Tatum in Friday's Game 6, Cleveland.com reports.

      Love's symptoms didn't immediately require entry into the concussion protocol, but there remains a chance he's placed in it if his symptoms change overnight or into the day Saturday. He's expected to be evaluated again Saturday afternoon, at which point a clearer picture of his status of Game 7 will likely be revealed. If Love's unable to go, Jeff Green, J.R. Smith and Larry Nance Jr. could all be counted on for additional minutes.

      Green contributed 14 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Friday's 109-99 victory over the Celtics.

      Green was forced into a bigger role with Kevin Love (concussion) leaving the game after a head clash with Jayson Tatum. Green was solid on both ends of the floor and could find himself playing even more in Game Seven if Love is forced to miss extended time.

      Nance totaled 10 points (5-5 FG), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist in 21 minutes during Friday's 109-99 victory over the Celtics.

      Nance was crucial as the Cavaliers fought off a dogged Celtics team to eventually record a 10 point victory and send the series back to Boston for a Game Seven. Nance had some nice put-back dunks and provided energy on the defensive end, limiting Tristan Thompson to just 22 minutes for the game. This was merely a case of a player getting hot and Thompson should retain his spot in the starting five for Sunday's Game Seven.

      Love is in concussion protocol and will not return to Friday's Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

      Love went down early in the first quarter after colliding heads with the Celtics' Jayson Tatum. He took the brunt of the blow and appeared woozy as he headed to the locker room. The Cavaliers evaluated the big man for the entire first half before ultimately ruling him out. It is an elimination game for the team, so they will need to pull out a victory for Love to get another opportunity to play this season.

      The home trend continued as the Cavaliers were able to stave off elimination on the back of yet another dominant performance in Game Six. James was at his best on both ends of the floor and while this sort of effort is to be expected, it never fails to impress. James did suffer a lower leg injury late in the contest and while he was down for a short period, he played out the match. There is no reason to believe it will keep him out of Game Seven but is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

      Tatum collided heads with the Cavaliers' Kevin Love early in the first quarter. The sequence ultimately knocked Love out of the game, but Tatum was able to continue. The rookie finished with 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3PT), three rebounds, two assists, and a steal across 39 minutes. Expect an update on his status as Game 7 approaches.

      Tucker continued his trademark strong work on the glass Thursday, while also helping prop up his scoring total with a 50.0 percent showing from three-point range. The veteran defensive specialist has only scored in double digits once during the series against the Warriors, but he's now hauled in between six and 16 rebounds over the last four games. He'll look to do his part when the Rockets go for the series win in Game 6 on Saturday.

      Looney drew a second straight start for Andre Iguodala (knee), but he was understandably a bit player on offense yet again. The third-year forward has posted four consecutive four-point efforts, cementing his slotting as a cost-effective DFS punt play at most in postseason contests. Iguodala's status for Saturday's critical Game 6 remains firmly up in the air, leaving open the possibility of a third straight run with the first unit for Looney.

      Durant's shot was less than sharp for the second consecutive contest, but a perfect showing from the free-throw line still helped him to a team-high scoring total. The perennial All-Star has scored at least 25 points in each of the five games against the Rockets, a streak he'll look to continue in Saturday's do-or-die Game 6.

      Brown continued to score the ball well Friday, finishing with 27 points but failed to record a defensive stat. He also went just 3-of-6 from the free-throw line, a constant source of frustration for the coaching staff.

      The Rockets have been playing with tight rotations during the series, but Green has logged at least 12 minutes and as many as 20 while seeing action in all five games thus far. His playing time could see even more of a bump in Saturday's Game 6 if Chris Paul (hamstring) is unable to suit up, as Green is aptly capable of providing a substantial offensive punch any time he's on the floor. He's yet to score in double digits during the series, but that could certainly change in what could be a series-clinching showdown at Oracle Arena on Saturday night.

      Ariza couldn't do much from the field, although a 75.0 percent showing from the charity stripe helped prop up his final line. The veteran wing broke out for a 19-point tally in Game 2 of the series, but he's drained just five of 16 attempts in Games 3-5 on his way to averaging a modest 7.0 points during that stretch. However, if Chris Paul (hamstring) is ultimately out of action for Saturday's Game 6, Ariza could certainly see an increase in offensive usage.

      Rozier was hot on his way to a team-high 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting. The Celtics shot very well as a team (51.4 percent) but were unable to overcome LeBron James and the series will now head back to Cleveland for a Game Seven.

      Paul tweaked his troublesome right hamstring with just under a minute left in Thursday's Game 5 win, and while he was able to walk off the court under his own power, he was visibly hampered. The fact that Houston has already ruled him out well in advance of Game 6 isn't the most encouraging sign, but Paul will now set his sights on a potential Game 7 return, should the Rockets fall in Game 6.

      The reserve guard played key minutes off the bench in the first two rounds of the playoffs, but he's been nursing a sprained left shoulder, and Friday will mark his seventh consecutive absence.

      Curry flipped the script a bit from a shooting perspective as compared to the last two games, when he'd found success from behind the arc but struggled from in front of it. The reverse was mostly true Thursday, as the nine-year veteran was a blistering 6-for-9 from two-point range.
