contd: Game 6: ATL Thurs, May 1, TBD; Game 7: IND Sat, May 3, TBD
Game 1: Sat, 7 p.m.; Game 2: Tues, 7 p.m.; Game 3 ATL: Thurs, 7 p.m.; Game 4 ATL: Sat, Apr 26, 2 p.m.; Game 5: Mon, 8 pm.
Robin Lopez broke the record for offensive rebounds in a season, shared by Kermit Washington, Chris Dudley, so that one's been a while.
Heat finished the regular season with the same record (54-28) as the 2012-13 New York Knicks.
If Bobcats reach Game 6, it would be in Charlotte May 2. Time TBD.
If necessary, Game 5 will be Apr. 30 at the SAS. Game 6 is May 2 in Dallas. Game 7 is May 4 at the SAS.
(cont) ... Game 3 is Friday, April 25 at 7:30 in Portland. Game 4 is Sunday, April 27 at 6:30 in Portland.
Jazz's Gordon Hayward finishes averaging 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 77 games.
With Game 1 on Saturday, the Pacers will practice late Thursday afternoon. Expect it to be mostly film study.
Only 2 of the 10 guys on the floor to start 2nd half are regular starters.
Bobcats' 2 guaranteed home games are Saturday April 26 and Monday April 28. Both games 7 p.m. tip-offs.
The two were actually in the same deal. Jackson (and Stanley Roberts from Orlando) to L.A., Doc, Charles Smith and Bo Kimble to NY.
Blazers start 2nd half with Watson, McCollum, Barton, Robinson and Lopez (only starter)
Biggest downfall from winning is that the Jazz will fall out of the top five if they lose tiebreaker with C's and another team moves up.
Game 4 at Washington is a noon start on ABC (Apr. 27)
Funny where former Clippers point guards meet up. Mark Jackson replaced part-time starter Doc Rivers in the L.A. backcourt in 1992.
For some odd reason, Robin Lopez is starting the second half.
So, the Lakers ended the season with two straight wins. What's one word to describe this season?
Bulls-Wiz Game 2 is Tuesday; 8:30 start. Games 3 & 4 are next Fri-Sun; Game 5 set for Tue., April 29 at UC.
Raps play Nets @ ACC at 1230 on Sat & 8 pm on Tues. Game 3 is Fri. at 7pm & Game 4 is Sunday at 7pm.
Calendar starting to fill up. http://t.co/MfIFO0wenQ
Early start might be good for the Raptors. Creaky Brooklyn won’t get afternoon naps

Pop looks like a beleaguered single dad in that picture.
Sometimes you forget that, in addition to 3 2014 1st-round picks, the Suns have a pair of 2013 1st-rounders who sat on the bench all year.
Hanley is happy they got the double play. I think he's happier he can still bear children. BK

The rebound disparity at halftime (Blazers 39, Clippers 19) is as big as you'll see in an NBA game. One team is playing hard, at least

Kendrick Perkins on the revenge factor of the Memphis series: "Now that we healthy, we get a chance to get a little get back."
I'm not sure what the Canadian TV schedule is. We have not been informed.
All the times are local. PST.
You could say Mike Moustakas, with his .098 average, was due for that. Royals take the 5-4 lead in the 11th.

Warriors-Clippers Game 2 is Monday 7:30 p.m. on TNT, Game 3 Thursday 7:30 p.m. on TNT, Game 4 Sunday 12:30 p.m on ABC.
Multiple days off before Game 1, in between 1 and 2 and in between 2 and 3. Not ideal, although NBA sked always spread out.
Pending coin flip, and using whole #'s, C's draft chances look like this... 1. 10% 2. 11% 3. 12% 4. 5% 5. 31% 6. 26% 7. 5% 8. .2%

WIZARDS GET AN ABC GAME
Solid first day at Portsmouth. Definitely exceeded (admittedly low) expectations. Two very close games. Saw some really solid performances.
Idiots out there think I don't like Curry. That jacket he's got on in Denver is nice, really nice.
Game 1 for Thunder-Grizzlies is set for 8:30 CT on Saturday.
Games 3 and 4, I meant, in my last tweet.
Dirk says he ran into Marc Gasol's knee brace like four times and now has a bruise on his knee, hence the sleeve. He's not concerned.
Warriors open playoffs vs. Clippers Saturday at 12:30 p.m. on ABC.
Tonight wraps my 5th year as radio voice of the Jazz and 34th year as a Jazz fan. Loved them all. Honored to be part of Jazz Nation

We talked about how in Taiwan, Japanese baseball is shown. Kevin Youkilis is in Japan nowadays. Also, Hong-Chih Kuo is back in Taiwan.
Latest edition of Opponents Praise Spurs, starring Swaggy P: They all buy into their system...from the last person on the bench to the 1st.
Well, as many Canadian NBA teams made the playoffs as Canadian NHL teams. SO there's that.
Fans are trash talking on my timeline and are acting like I'm a huge fan of the team I cover. Can only mean one thing: Playoff time, baby.
Casey: "Experience is one thing but you’ve got to go play… it's why they play the games. Our guys are going to be ready"
Had a nice conversation yesterday with the current pitcher, Jerome Williams, about Taiwan. He's pitched there. I just came back from there.
One of the most eventful seasons an NBA team can have. Proud to say I'm one of the few people who've attended every Pelicans game EVER ha
Thanks to all MFFLs for tuning in this season. I know u have a choice in playoff games. Hope you'll continue to check us out on TXA21
Grizzlies vs OKC Game 1 will be Saturday night at 8:30.
Of course, key with Thibs is that he just doesn't care what anyone else thinks. He's going to do what he feels is best for his team. Period.
This just in : New Bucks ownership vows to keep team in Secaucus...
No play available as Dominguez' momentum was taking him toward the third-base bag. Woulda been a ridiculously hard throw, possible error.
The rest of the 1st round schedule will be out for Mavs v Spurs later this evening. When I get I will share of course.
That's it for 2013-14, but as you know, offseason is filled with events (summer league, free agency). Thanks to all who follow this account
Big break for Thibs: NYK ended up coming back to beat TOR. If Bulls had won they would be 3 seed and Thibs would have gotten crushed.
To over-simplify on a crazy Twitter night, the Celtics will have a 10.4% chance at the top pick and a 1-in-3 chance of landing in the top 3.
Ducks go up, 4-0, in Game 1 of playoff series against Dallas.
Steph Curry’s jacket just broke my TV.
Before Caron Butler left the locker room, he hollered over at Russell Westbrook. "Hey Russ, follow me on Twitter."
Still more work to do on Celts, but now get to indulge our real passion: drunk-tweeting MLS games. (Thanks for year, twitgang.)
The People's Champ is the only player for Fan Appreciation Night.
Strange league: Corbin getting killed for winning. Nothing about Mark Jackson/Warriors shamelessly losing finale to preserve pick in '12.
Best part of night for the Bulls is that they end up in ideal spot despite loss. Play Wizards and then Indy/ ATL winner if they get past 1st
Harrison Barnes could use about 40 to enter the playoffs with enough confidence to repeat 2013.
…BKN has players that know how to execute in the postseason and guys that aren’t phased by rnd one. First Playoffs for most Raps.
THE P3OPL3'S CHAMP
Well, the Raps get to go against an old pseudo-nemesis in the Nets. The biggest fear has to be experience disparity…
Joel Freeland's first shift comes to an end with 4 pts, 2 rebs and 1 ast in 5 mins. Solid shift.
Joerger said that he was already taking the timeout when Tony walked away. So Tony could have seen that and quit on the play because of that
McLemore already has a new career high with 4 assists.
Dave Joerger ties Hubie Brown (50-32 in 03-04) for best record in club history in 1st full season. Brown took over 28-win team. Joerger 56.
Pretty good shift for Joel Freeland, 4 points, 2 rebounds, an assist in five minutes.
If I'm reading correctly, Jazz win tonight cost them 15/16 ping-ping balls in the lottery: 119 for 4th-worst record, 103/104 now.
Ben McLemore already has 18 points. His career-high 20. Kings up 43-41.
McLemore with 16 points early on 6/10 shooting.
If only the Raptors went 0-7 in OT games instead of 1-6, they'd be playing the Wiz.
After 53 minutes of going all out on the final day of the season, one free throw separates 7th and 8th place in the West. Crazy trip...
Living here all my life… what haven’t I seen? Not much
Players were asked “What is the weirdest thing you’ve seen in Portland?” Honestly, my answers wouldn’t be fit for public consumption
Leonard on 1st round opponent, as Memphis/Dallas hung in the balance: "Doesn't matter. Still have to win four games."
Wheels up headed to Sweet Home Chicago ! Get fired up. Game 1 of NBA playoffs Sunday night 530CT pre Bulls Radio Net. ESPN 1000
So far, hammered fan in suite behind me has cursed Hedo, compared Mo Williams to Trav Outlaw, just realized CP3 isn’t here. Might live blog
Sources, and they would know, put Raptors-Nets Game 1 at 12:30 Saturday afternoon
If Corbin were more dastardly, he could've really derailed Jazz's future by just missing out on playoffs and finishing 14th in the lottery.
Danny Granger is actually in uniform on the Clippers bench but will not play tonight. He will return to practice Thursday or Friday.
Doc has said for weeks that Turkoglu is going to help. He's been at his best since joining Clippers in last 2 weeks.
If neither the Celtics or Jazz move into the top 3 (& it's more likely one WILL move up than not), a coin flip Friday decides who picks 4th.
Rondo's takeaway in his first season as captain: "Being a leader, I just have to do it more versus talking."
Wade on whether Spoelstra can push him 35-38 minutes: "I guess we'll see when he has to."
For those asking, the NBA will release the playoff schedule shortly after all games are completed tonight. We'll post here when they do.
David Lee and Stephen Curry are supposed to be getting rest, but they're doing quite a bit of cardio by jumping around and cheering.
14 seconds into his shift, Freeland grabs a rebound.
Wade on LeBron: "We've played together for 4 years. That's enough continuity right there."
And the East: 1 Pacers vs 8 Hawks 2 Heat vs 7 Bobcats 3 Raptors vs 6 Nets 4 Bulls vs 5 Wizards
Both Casey and Lowry say they dont feel slighted by Nets decision to rest players, maintain they like their chances vs any opponent
Dwyane Wade: "Tomorrow will be the last day anybody can bother me. After that, I'm sorry."
Folks we have Joel Freeland checking in. Along with ThomRob, Thrill, CJ and Earl Watson. I think we've seen the last of the starters.
In regular season, Raptors shot seven more free throws than Nets in the four meetings. Shot 10 more in one of the games
Game 2. Tuesday night 830 tip
Give me what you think is THE biggest factor in the Houston-Portland playoff series.
