The day after the Blazers were eliminated from the playoffs with a disappointing sweep at the hands of Golden State, Lillard still had one task to perform: Getting the rest of the team to sign off on donating their playoff checks. When a team makes the playoffs, they are awarded a bonus check. This season, any team participating in the first round of the playoffs was given $223,864 to be divided among players. For the Blazers, that is roughly $16,000 per player.

Beverley has missed five straight games with a sore right knee. He has averaged 12.9 points, three assists and three rebounds for the Clippers this season. Los Angeles has struggled without its opening-night backcourt of Beverley and rookie Milos Teodosic. As Beverley plans his return on Monday, Teodosic’s return is still uncertain. He suffered an injury to his left plantar fascia in October and isn’t expected back in the near future.
The injury-depleted and poorly rested Jazz humiliated the Magic 125-85 inside Amway Center. The 40-point defeat tied for the largest home loss in team history and tied for the fourth-largest loss overall. “We should all feel embarrassed to put this kind of performance in front of anywhere but especially in front of our home fans,” Vucevic said after the final buzzer. “Just an embarrassment. For us as professional players, we should have more pride and respond in some way. But we didn’t do that.”
