Cavs squander 26-point lead in OT loss, Westbrook breaks record

As the Cavs turn: Drama subsided, NBA champs hitting stride

Following their 123-116 defeat to the Hawks on Thursday night and with just three games remaining in their season, the Celtics trail the Cavs by 1.5 games.

The Cavs lost 5 of 7, before recently winning 4 straight.

Detroit 103, Memphis 90: Reggie Bullock and Boban Marjanovic each scored 14 points and the Pistons used a 3-point shooting spree in the fourth quarter to beat the Grizzlies in Memphis, Tennessee.

"I thought some different combinations played well".

Atlanta quickly answered. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Prince and Kent Bazemore soon restored the Hawks' 10-point lead and they stretched it out to 71-55 at halftime. The Hawks' Mike Muscala had nine points, three assists and three boards in the fourth quarter, and was +28 in 12 minutes. We're going to go through these types of phases, I guess it is. Atlanta has as much depth and talent as anyone in the league so why not consider the best-case scenario, which is Dwight Howard and company finding their stride at the ideal time of the year. "We're in second place [in the East] for a reason".

So, when I say "step up", it means defensively too because honestly that is what this team needs more of right now.

The Mavericks rested starters Dirk Nowitzki, Nerlens Noel and Wesley Matthews in the second half.

Giants to Put Buster Posey on Disabled List
The Giants honored longtime Major League Baseball senior executive Katy Feeney, who died April 1 at age 68. Matt Moore earned the victory for the Giants, going eight innings allowing three hits and struck out five.

Jae Crowder is finding it tough to explain. It was a questionable call and one that King James did not approve of. "I think J.R. (Smith) and Korver and Kevin (Love) and those guys should play a little bit because they've been out for so long and just try to keep J.R.'s rhythm and establish Kevin's rhythm and the same thing with Kyle.". But that's not the way it goes. "Beat Boston and have the game that we had, and to come back and not validate it against a team that didn't even play their guys". The Cavaliers were in the top 10 in multiple defensive categories during their championship season previous year. The Celtics forgot they were a bunch of rowdies storming the castle and began acting/playing as if they were the aristocracy.

One note about the Cavs' performance Friday: they missed a lot of open shots, specifically from three. "Let's not play today, '" Bradley said.

Stanley Johnson broke a deadlock with 32.4 seconds remaining as the Pistons overcame the Rockets 114-109, while DeMar DeRozan's big night guided the Toronto Raptors past the Miami Heat 96-94. We can't be the retaliators. Just a few plays that didn't go our way.

"It's hard to explain the way we kind of play - how we come up short all the time as far as just energy-wise". The Hawks shot just under 47 percent in the game. He finished with four points on 1-for-7 shooting.

It's more important that the Bostonians find a groove over their last three games. "They will be ready when it is most important".

"We now know exactly what we have to do on this upcoming road trip", McMillan said. "I want to see us playing as hard as we played in the second half of that game". Guarantee the day we leave its nice. "That has to be part of who we are".
