Most execs feel Carmelo returns to #Knicks as well. Biggest name available could be Pau Gasol. "Never know tho. Lots can change," exec says.

Sam Amico

In talking w several execs today, consensus is LeBron, Wade, Bosh all re-up w #Heat. Doesn't mean it happens. But that's general consensus.

Brendan Bowers

Trading Kyrie would be the worst

Sam Amico

One East exec on #Heat: "LeBron can carry them to title all by himself, for sure. But no one's afraid of the rest of those clowns anymore."

#Hawks get #Pacers in first round but were kind of hoping for #Heat. Won 2 straight vs MIA to finish 2-2 in season for year.

I say we stage a "We Were Supposed To Be Tanking But Look At Us Now, Suckers" 7-game championship series between #Raptors and #Suns.

#Raptors, via 110-100 win vs #Bucks, set single-season team record for wins (48). This is something we all predicted, right? Great story.

Sam Amico

FYI: #Suns 20-0 when shooting 50 pct or better; 23-4 when Eric Bledsoe scores 16 or more. #Grizzlies can eliminate them from playoffs w win.

Celtics 111, #Cavs 99, final. Cavs score 41 points in fourth quarter to get back in game.

Final: #Celtics 111, #Cavs 99. Rookie Kelly Olynyk, drafted 13th, w 25 pts. Forty-eight more minutes before the changes begin in CLE.

Poor Kelly Olynyk fouls out of game before he can better his career-high of 25 points. He's stuck at equaling it. #Cavs #Celtics

Celtics 60, #Cavs 42, halftime. It's like a layup drill for Boston. Center Kelly Olynyk has 20 points, 8 rebounds in rare start.

If last night's loss to Milwaukee wasn't embarrassing enough, #Cavs trail Boston 60-42 at half. Olynyk 20 p, 8 r. Career-high is 25 p.

Somehow Boston's Kelly Olynyk is unstoppable for #Cavs. He has 18 points, 8 rebounds -- and it's not halftime, yet.

Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters have fallen in love with their outside jumpers, again, and #Cavs are shooting 33%. They're down by 12.

#Cavs off to sparkling 25% shooting in 1Q, trail Celtics 28-18. Jeff Green 8p, 4r . Kyrie Irving 4p - despite shooting 0-for-3 (all FTs).

Celtics 28, #Cavs 18, end first Q. Boston has just 8 players available. Currently blowing Cavs off court.

#Cavs look every bit as enthused as Friday at #Bucks. Which is why they're getting worked over by undermanned #Celtics, 28-18 end 1Q.
