Wizards played a double overtime last night. OT tonight
The worst four words you can hear when covering Game No. 82 of 82 with no playoff implications: And we have overtime.
bulls winning late. would be 3 seed and cavs' likely opponent in 2nd round
Just in from the league: If the Wizards do not attempt a 3 here, $25,000 fine coming for Randy Wittman
Shoot a three, Washington. Please
I'll just say this: The Cavs, as constructed, could not survive OT tonight
this thing had better not go OT!!!!
Haywood last played Feb. 26, 39 seconds vs. Golden State
evan Brendan haywood playing in this one
if cavs hold on, will end season by winning 34 of final 43 games
Shumpert's played 28 minutes tonight, easily the most on the Cavs
Kendrick Perkins warming up for playoffs with a technical
Another amazing moment: Brendan Haywood enters the game.
I can't believe it. Iman Shumpert blew another breakaway dunk. Amazing.
otto porter sprained ankle, will not return
other than sub starter Miller, no Cavs starters have played in second half
Shump made up for that missed dunk on Monday with that one.
Interesting ATL is playing the regulars so much in game against CHI. Wonder if it has anything to do with avoiding TOR, who won series 3-1?
Nothing is wrong with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and JR Smith, I'm told. This was the plan all along.
This is great. LeBron was seated in customers' seats along the baseline, in blazer and sweats. He had to move cuz of paying customers
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are making their way to the bench.
And Kyrie Irving hasn't made it out of the locker room, as well.
Kevin Love and JR Smith have not made it out of the locker room for the second half.
Kyrie, Love, Moz and J.R. start the second half on the bench. Good chance that's all we see of them tonight.
Raptors win. So unless Bulls also win, and they trail by 7 at the half, Toronto would likely be the Cavs second-round matchup.
Cavs trail 56-53 at the half after trailing by as many as 15. Love 19p (5-of-6 from 3); Kyrie 9p 7a; Moz 8p. LeBron out (rest).
sorry, folks, not watching this one real closely. working on playoff stuff
Maybe LeBron James was right. Kevin Love is the MVP...in first half of this game. Has 19 points and 3 boards with 1:49 until intermission.
cavs 2-10 without LeBron this season, looking like that will be 2-11
tonight's sole goal: get a sweat going and don't get hurt
As a viewer/fan of basketball, I really don't know if A.D.'s postseason baptism or Russ pulling a Penny '97 playoffs is more compelling
Mike Miller will start at small forward instead of LeBron James vs. Wizards

There are 27 outs in a game. Three in this inning. Chicago just gave one up on the bunt attempt. Brilliant.
Getting lots of questions on when NBA teams open playoffs. Hear Cavs-Celtics slotted for Sunday 3:30, but not official. We'll know tonight.
game or two might be close, but Cavs in four
Raptors need a win (vs Hornets) and a Bulls loss (vs Hawks) for No. 3 seed. Third seed opens playoffs vs Bucks, fourth opens with Wizards.
