Lou Williams has been named Sixth Man of the year #raptors

Ben Standig

Raptors guard Lou Williams named NBA sixth man of the year. The Wizards agree with the selection.

Zac Boyer

Are there any coaches anymore who don't agree to "mutually part ways"?

Casey Philip

Smith asked if he and Licht are in agreement w/how they rank top 5 players in draft: yes complete agreement. #bucs

Ben Standig

NFL announcing 2015 league schedule Tuesday night, same time Wizards, Caps are playing. Some might have an interesting take on this.

Casey Philip

Smith asked if draft a QB would he be comfortable w/ them starting week 1: not caught up in what year they are just if they are best option

Casey Philip

Smith: we are excited about where our office is going, have a pretty good idea of what it'll be, but obviously is flexible based on the pick

Jorge Castillo

Kevin Seraphin made sure he was prepared to make an impact in Game 1: wpo.st/imYD0

Casey Philip

Smith: history may say only certain % of top drafted QBs make it but after meeting these 2, might be "bucking that trend" this year

Ben Standig

Are any of the truly interesting B10 teams participating in the Big East-Big Ten challenge or...

Casey Philip

Smith asked about media opinions of Winston/Mariota: it's our decision and opinion that matters

Casey Philip

Smith: I've thoroughly enjoyed process of getting to know young men in draft, decision isn't that hard if you put the right work in. #bucs

Casey Philip

Lovie Smith's turn at the mic. @TBBuccaneers http://t.co/lgrTkkgYCA

Casey Philip

Licht asked about how pre draft process compares to previous years: we worked out a lot more players in private workouts than in years past

Casey Philip

Licht asked what other areas looking at in draft: "really good players" then joked "good players help you win, that's a study I've done"

Casey Philip

Licht: right now Gerald McCoy is face of franchise, that's a title that's earned not given walking in the door

Casey Philip

Licht asked how this draft matches up w/ team's need: matches up well, deep at OL and DL but will also look at best available

Casey Philip

Licht when asked how Winston vetting compares to his experience vetting Tyrann Mathieu: "very similar"

Casey Philip

Licht: there's no benefit in negotiating w/player now, can't get them in any earlier, we are going to use allotted time

Casey Philip

Licht on Winston: very confident in the work we've done, maybe in 25 years I'll write a book. There have been no surprises w/civil suit

Casey Philip

Licht: we look at history a lot, it's embedded in all scouts, want to see how champs have done it, but doesn't sway the pick. Case by case

Casey Philip

Licht: no one in this building thinks no.1 draft pick is a burden. But don't want to have it again unless we trade up. #bucs

Casey Philip

Michael Lee

Dwane Casey doesn't expect Kyle Lowry to repeat dreadful Game 1: "He’ll bounce back.” wapo.st/1HLNpXK #raptors http://t.co/tokoEfVIgC

Mike Prada

. @Phaetonv2 does his thing with all those Blake Griffin dunks. sbnation.com/2015/4/20/8455… http://t.co/exoD5EwRDp

Bradley Beal

Do not let your PROBLEMS be bigger than GOD!! Give them to Him instead. Have a blessed day !

Jorge Castillo

And from @Michael Lee: Lowry didn't care about Beal's wave goodbye. He's just determined to bounce back in Game 2: wpo.st/voWD0

Jorge Castillo

Greivis Vasquez on Paul Pierce: "He’s got everybody’s attention." From @gene_wang: wpo.st/BoWD0

Jorge Castillo

Looking to shake off Game 1's shooting struggles, Bradley Beal put in some extra work yesterday. From @gene_wang: wpo.st/WnWD0

Jorge Castillo

His numbers don't stand out but Otto Porter's impact was felt in Game 1: wpo.st/4nWD0

Jorge Castillo

Another playoff series, another fine for Masai Ujiri: wpo.st/rmWD0

Jorge Castillo

Paul Pierce finally played the 4 Saturday. Apparently it was always part of the plan: wpo.st/5mWD0

Kevin Seraphin

When. You. Read. Stuff. Like. This. The. Voice. In. Your. Head. Takes. Pauses.

Ben Standig

Only team to win a road game so far...

Mike Prada

Think the Spurs need to be careful not to overadjust. Ran into a buzzsaw tonight. Couple minor tweaks + making more shots is the goal

Michael Lee

We fly high, no lie, you know this (Paulin') #clippers

Mike Prada

Not sure I’d make big rotation adjustments yet if I’m Pop. Start by scripting misdirection to free shooters. Find a way to string DAJ out

Mike Prada

This bolsters Doc’s case that DeAndre’s presence is worth more than what’s on the surface. Starts w/ him + everyone else’s multiple efforts

Michael Lee

Spurs ain't dead yet...but you've probably heard that before

Mike Prada

Blake Griffin is the Baynes of Aron’s existence.

Mike Prada

Big deal that Crawford is making shots. It props up units with lots of bench players.

Michael Lee

Will Steve Ballmer survive this series - shoot, this game - without imploding?

Ben Standig

Blake made the Blake face.

Mike Prada

Please note all the multiple efforts the Clippers had on that last defensive possession.

Michael Lee

Aron Baynes had a really bad run. Tossed into photographers by Matt Barnes, tossed to floor by Blake & later crushed by Blake dunk #clippers

Mike Prada

Spurs just haven’t been able to string DeAndre out on pick and rolls. Letting him control the paint.

Mike Prada

If this DeAndre Jordan showed up for all 82 games, he would win DPOY

Ben Standig

Everything Chuck just said about Shaq's offense is Paul Pierce truth.

Mike Prada

How fast is DeAndre Jordan’s free-throw slider on NBA Jam?

Mike Prada

Couldn’t the Clippers mitigate some of the bench disaster by splitting the Blake/DeAndre combo up a bit more?

Mike Prada

Worth noting that signing Hawes for the full MLE prevented the Clippers from getting Paul Pierce.

Mike Prada

The all-bench Clippers lineup is struggling? Why, I’m shocked

Ben Standig

Makes sense if game broadcast on Comedy Central. twitter.com/KevinRashidi/s…

Mike Prada

Would love to see the Wiz co-opt that jumbo high pick and roll from 35 feet away. Good way to use both bigs + get Wall with a head of steam.

Mike Prada

Not sure about that call but DeAndre didn’t need to bring his arms down

Michael Lee

Chris Paul starting floptastically falling down before Kawhi Leonard even got near him.

Mike Prada

Kawhi is struggling with Redick

Zac Boyer

The #Caps struggled with early starts and in games at Nassau Coliseum. Those obstacles tripped them up on Sunday: wtim.es/1Q6Z1Ij

Mike Prada

Best thing about this win for Memphis: Only 24 minutes for Conley.

Mike Prada

Meyers Leonard pulled Gasol away from the hoop on that last Batum three. He should play more in Game 2

Mike Prada

Koufos and Gasol gives you great rim protection, but it also allows Portland to keep Meyers Leonard in the game to stretch MEM out

Mike Prada

The Grizzlies are really making life hard for Lillard. Bigs coming out in perfect position, guards giving multiple efforts

Mike Prada

Clippers-Spurs begins in 30 minutes. Read my team previews: CLIPS: sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/… SPURS: sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/…

Mike Prada

Deadly transition pick by Koufos to free Udrih

Ben Standig

Titans signed Orakpo & re-signed Morgan to hefty contracts, but Greg Cosell thinks they should draft Dante Fowler. Hmmm, @PaulKuharskyNFL.

Mike Prada

Portland’s best chance is if Lillard goes supernova with Conley and Allen hobbling, so this game is not a good sign.

Zac Boyer

Listening back to tape of Jack Capuano's press conference. Someone asked him if "today, justice triumphed" with an Islanders win.

Ben Standig

Kenny: "[Udrih] reminds me a little of Sarunas Marciulionis." Chuck: "He's not as big." Kenny: "A little." Chuck: "They're both white guys."

Mike Prada

That was a fantastic Conley pocket pass to hit Gasol before McCollum arrived with the nail help.

Mike Prada

I don’t know how Conley made that off his bad foot. I do know that while he sure looked quick, Lillard’s defense helped.

Mike Prada

Tony Allen was so far off C.J. McCollum and the Blazers didn’t notice

Mike Prada

Udrih/Carter combo working. Another thing I didn’t expect

Mike Prada

Portland needs to use that double drag action on delayed breaks. Score before POR’s defense is set.

Mike Prada

Tony Allen really struggling to move as he goes to the bench.

Mike Prada

Don’t like the Udrih/Carter guard combo when you’ve begun enforcing your will with your defense. Breakdowns by both on last two plays

Mike Prada

Jeff Green just made up for his touch pass by saving it under his own basket

Mike Prada

“Nice shot Courtney, I totally meant to pass it to you"

Mike Prada

I think the Hawks needed to get that game out of their system and will generally be fine. But some issues were revealed.

Mike Prada

My guess is we won’t be seeing Markel Brown much for the rest of the series. Nets should stick with Bojan and Anderson on the wing.

Ben Standig

I never recommend watching First Take, but if there is a day to 100% avoid, it's tomorrow. #tebow

Mike Prada

Grizzlies-Blazers begins in 30 minutes. Read my team previews: GRIZZ: sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/… BLAZERS: sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/…

Mike Prada

There has to be a reason teams miss so many good three-point looks against the Hawks.

Mike Prada

You can thank Kyle Korver’s shooting for that Pero dunk

Mike Prada

Millsap doesn’t quite look right

Mike Prada

Deron took an awful shot when the Nets had a chance to tie. Then let Teague strip him two possessions later. Killer possessions.

Mike Prada

Nets are going with lots of size by playing Bogdanovic. Hawks can’t get space via organized chaos. Need an A+ ATO from Coach Bud

Mike Prada

If I’m BKN, I explore some dribble handoffs inside the three-point line with Lopez as the screener. Can get him the pass on the roll sooner.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman today explained why he waited until the playoffs to play Pierce at the 4: wpo.st/4uUD0
