Katie Strang @KatieStrangESPN

Great pace of play to close out the end of the second period. We're tied here 1-1, because it's Caps and Rangers so of course we are

Shane Battier @ShaneBattier

Watching Bulls/Cavs. I admit. I miss the playoffs. Nothing better. Every possession means something. Meaningful basketball.

Dave McMenamin @mcten

Gm 1, only Cav to play above his expected output was Iman & Kyrie (to lesser extent). Gm 2 it was Iman, Delly, JJ, Tristan & even LeBron

Capitals tie it up

Rookie Andre Burakovsky scored his first career playoff goal late in the second period. Washington leads the Rangers 2-1 in the series. Box score


Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

LeBron decided to take over tonight. When that happens in a game, the Bulls -- and every other team -- don't have much of a chance.

Cavaliers pulling away

The Bulls have gone ice cold in the 4th (2-of-11 from the field), and the Cavaliers have stretched their lead back up to 20 with under 6 minutes to play. Follow live

Cavs lead big after 3

The Bulls cut what was once a 25-point lead down to 11, but Cleveland pushed it back up to 16 heading into the 4th quarter. LeBron James is leading the way with 30 points. Follow live


Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun

Bolts have 9 shots through 40 min but still lead the Habs 1-0. Which just further plays mind games on a team that's lost 7 straight to them

Ben Bishop doesn't break

The Canadiens spent plenty of time near the Lightning's net but the goaltender made sure nothing got past him. Tampa Bay has a 2-0 edge in the series and a 1-0 lead in Game 3 after two periods. Follow live


Reds have Cole's number

Gerrit Cole gave up 8 hits and 3 runs in 5 innings of work tonight in Pittsburgh. The Pirates starter has allowed 6 earned runs to the Reds in 2 starts this season and just 3 earned runs total in his other 4 starts. Cincinnati leads 3-0 in the 6th. Follow live
