Raptors face tough offseason decisions

After a first-round sweep by the Wizards, the Raptors have some difficult offseason choices to make in the wake of a disappointing finish


Mike Mazzeo @MazzESPN

Kyle Korver is 4-for-18 from 3-point range in his past two games #Nets doing an excellent job shadowing him/switching/contesting.

Lillard leaves Grizzlies dizzy in his dust

It's safe to say the Grizzlies missed PG Mike Conley. Portland's Damian Lillard blew by Conley's replacement, Beno Udrih, with a spin move and made a reverse layup late in the second quarter of the Blazers' Game 4 win.


Lillard makes most of Conley's absence

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 32 in the Blazers' 99-92 win over the Grizzlies. The victory was Portland's first of the year against Memphis in 8 tries and sends the series back to Memphis for Game 5.

Grizzlies play the foul game late

Vince Carter and Marc Gasol ran a pretty play out of the timeout to narrow the Portland lead to 2, but the Grizzlies were forced to send Damian Lillard to the free-throw line, and he drilled both to push the margin back to 4. Follow live


Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Good use of a play I know as "Rocket" to get Courtney Lee a layup to cut lead to 2. But Lillard makes both free throws and it's back to 4.

Lillard can't quite hit the dagger

Damian Lillard had a chance to put the Blazers up 6 with less than 30 seconds left, but he missed a 3-pointer, but Nicolas Batum drew a loose-ball foul on Jeff Green and sank two free throws to extend Portland's lead. Follow live


Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Damian Lillard's been looking for that pull-up 3-pointers all night. Finally found it -- and a foul.

Blazers not done yet in Portland

It's been a rough second half for LaMarcus Aldridge, but the Grizzlies are struggling offensively in the fourth without Mike Conley, and the Blazers have tied things up late in regulation. Follow live


Baxter Holmes @BaxterHolmes

If this is LMA’s swan song in Portland, it hasn’t been pretty. He’s 5-20 from the field, including 0-9 in the second half.
