      Pistons' Blake Griffin: Probable for Game 4
      5h ago

      Griffin is probable for Monday's Game 4 against the Bucks with left knee soreness, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

      Griffin surprisingly made his series debut in Saturday's Game 3 after missing the first two outings with the injured left knee. And while he was visibly hampered by the ailment while sporting a giant brace, he still managed to post 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists across 31 minutes in the loss. Now, despite being a game away from elimination, it looks like Griffin is going down with the ship Monday night, but his status will still need to be confirmed prior to tip.

      Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Another poor shooting night Sunday
      5h ago

      Gallinari compiled 16 points (5-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, and four assists in 36 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to Golden State.

      Gallinari struggled mightily from the floor Sunday, finishing with 16 points on 5-of-20 shooting. That makes a combined 7-of-33 over the course of the last two games, his poor shooting coming at the worst possible time for the Clippers. Despite the recent inefficiencies, Gallinari has had a fantastic season and certainly rewarded those who took a risk on him in their respective drafts. He will look to bounce back in Game 5 of the series, however, it could be a case of too little, too late for the eighth-seeded Clippers.

      Beverley totaled 12 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to the Warriors.

      Beverley ended with a double-double Sunday, adding three blocks in what was a much-improved effort when compared to his previous outing. That being said, it was not enough as the Clippers fell by eight points, moving to within one loss of a round-one exit. Beverley has certainly left his mark on the series and has proven himself to still have value over the back half of the season.

      Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 25 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to the Warriors.

      Gilgeous-Alexander began Sunday's game red-hot, scoring 14 of the first 17 Clipper points. He slowed from that point but still ended with a career-high 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting. The Clippers are now just one loss away from elimination with Game 5 to be held in Oakland on Wednesday. Whatever the outcome, Gilgeos-Alexander has had a strong rookie season, progressing much faster than anyone would have expected.

      Bogut amassed eight points (4-7 FG), 10 rebounds, and four assists in 21 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 victory over the Clippers.

      Bogut managed just 21 minutes before fouling out Sunday but was still able to leave his mark on the game with eight points and 10 rebounds. He continues to thrive as the starting center and has certainly been a nice addition for the Warriors. He doesn't have the upside of a player like DeMarcus Cousins (quad) but is a perfect fit for the uptempo Warriors offense and should continue to see solid minutes for the remainder of the playoffs.

      Durant poured in a game-high 33 points Sunday, having his way with the Clippers as the Warriors took a stranglehold on the series. He has now dominated the last two games and has put the disappointing performance in Game 2 well and truly behind him. The Warriors will now head home where they will look to secure a place in the second round where they will meet either the Jazz or the Rockets, the later of which hold a 3-0 series lead.

      Turner compiled 13 points (5-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, and two blocks in 34 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 loss to Boston.

      Turner was unable to help the Pacers avoid a fourth consecutive loss Sunday despite 13 points and seven rebounds. Turner had a fantastic season after what was a disappointing 2017-18. He led the league in blocked shots, averaging 2.7 per game while managing to play in 74 regular season games. Turner is going to be a sought after fantasy asset moving forward with owners likely having to spend a second or third round pick in acquiring him.

      Baynes had just two points, two rebounds, and one steal in 18 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 victory over Indiana.

      Baynes did very little to trouble the scorers Sunday, ending the victory with just two points in 18 minutes. He is basically out there as a big body to match up with the size of Indiana and barely features in their offensive structures.

      Horford ended with a double-double Sunday, thankfully saving what was a terrible shooting night. He hit just 4-of-19 from the floor and failed to pick up a defensive stat. The Celtics are now through to the second round of the playoffs where they will likely face the Bucks who are just one victory away from also recording a first-round sweep.

      After impressing with 18 points and 15 rebounds in the game three defeat, Zubac has been moved to the bench to start Sunday's contest to put him in a better matchup against Golden State's reserves. JaMychal Green has taken his spot in the starting five and should help the Clippers with their spacing and playmaking.

      Poeltl was one of two Spurs to earn at least 30 minutes, and he continues to spend the majority of contests covering Nikola Jokic. Poeltl has now seen 30-plus minutes in consecutive tilts, and he's been posting solid rebounding numbers here in these playoffs. Still, his production across most categories remains limited.

      Morris tallied 18 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and eight rebounds in 30 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 victory over Indiana.

      Morris finished with an empty 18 points and eight rebounds Sunday but was certainly a factor down the stretch, nailing a couple of clutch baskets. Morris typically provides value only on nights he is shooting the ball well and that was once again the case here. Despite his limited skillset, Morris is going to be a factor for the Celtics moving forward and will need to continue his solid shooting if they hope to push for a Conference finals berth.

      Green has averaged 12.7 points and 6.0 rebounds so far in the series off the bench, so the Clippers have moved him into the starting lineup to try and match with all of the Warriors's playmakers. Zubac will move to the bench as a result, but should still see minutes after recording 18 points and 15 rebounds in the Game 3 defeat.

      Yabusele was questionable entering Sunday's game due to his sore back. His absence shouldn't impact the team much at all since he hasn't seen any action off the bench in the first-three games of the series. Yabusele's next chance to play will either be in Game 5 on Wednesday or in Round 2 against Milwaukee, depending on if the Celtics win Sunday's tilt.

      Griffin amassed 27 points (10-24 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 31 minutes during Saturday's 119-103 loss to Milwaukee.

      Griffin made his first appearance of the playoffs Saturday, ending the loss with 27 points in 31 minutes. Despite being cleared to play, Griffin was clearly hampered by the knee injury and the fact he was even on the floor was quite surprising. He was sporting a large brace on his knee and his final numbers certainly don't tell the full story when it comes to gauging his courage. Unfortunately, it was to no avail as the Pistons fell comfortably to the Bucks and are now only one game away from losing in four. There is certainly some doubt as to whether Griffin is able to back up for Monday's game with his availability likely being a game-time call.

      Aldridge filled up the stat sheet despite not seeing the floor at all in the fourth quarter. Coach Gregg Popovich stated in his post-game press conference that Aldridge isn't injured. With the series tied at two games apiece, Aldridge seems likely to receive a heavy load of minutes in Tuesday's Game 5.

      Bogdanovic rounded out his season with a game-high 22 points as the Pacers were bundled out of the playoffs in four straight games. Many would say the Pacers overachieved after they lost Victor Oladipo for the season and much of their success was due to the impressive play of Bogdanovic. His numbers were up across the board and he certainly emerged as a consistent scoring option on what is a promising Pacers team.

      Hayward dropped a team-high 20 points Sunday as the Celtics closed out a four-game sweep of the Pacers. Hayward had his best game of the playoffs and is certainly trending in the right direction. His recovery from injury has been a long and drawn out process but perhaps he is beginning to turn the corner. If he manages to build on this effort, it certainly increases the Celtics' chances of making even more noise in the playoffs.

      Craig drew the start at small forward, finished with a career high in made threes, and earned over twice as many minutes as former starter Will Barton (12 points in 15 minutes). Craig can cover multiple positions defensively and fits in offensively as a spot-up shooter, strengths that make him a strong fit with the starting five. Meanwhile, Barton's combination of ball-handling and playmaking seems best suited for the second unit, as it affords him more time with the ball in his hands.

      Harris once again turned in a big stat line as the 76ers took their third straight win to take a 3-1 series lead over the Nets. Harris has stuffed the stat sheet over his last three games, averaging 24.0 points, 9.3 boards and 3.7 assists.

      Forbes has reached double figures in scoring in three of four games thus far in this playoff series. He's primarily on the court because of his ability to space the floor from beyond the arc. Nevertheless, Forbes earns enough minutes to make sporadic contributions in other categories as well.

He has been a solid pickup for the Pistons after they lost Reggie Bullock mid-season, as a player who can hit multiple threes while also chipping in a few steals from time-to-time.

      Barton came off the bench and saw limited action while Torrey Craig drained a career-high five treys in 37 minutes as the starting small forward. Barton has seen a drop in minutes in all four games during this playoff series (from 32 to 26 to 20 to 15). However, he amassed more points in this one than he did in the last two tilts combined while draining more threes than he had in the first three put together. Moreover, Barton may end up spending more time with the ball in his hands as one of the key cogs for the second unit than he did as the fourth of fifth option in the starting five.

Collison, along with a number of other players, was forced into a more sizeable role when Victor Oladipo was lost for the season. He finished with season averages of 6.0 assists and 1.4 steals while also shooting efficiently from both the field and the free-throw line.

      Mills was as energetic as usual despite dealing with a hyperextended left thumb, and he scored more points in this one than he had in the first three games of this series combined (nine). Mills is normally a reliable low-end source of threes and assists.

      Jackson came away with 15 points and eight assists Saturday as the Pistons once again fell to the Bucks in Game 3 of their playoff series. Jackson has put together two straight strong performances, although, the efficiency has not been spectacular.
