Chris Paul on resting after Game 1 win: "That definitely didn’t hurt. I told the guys after the last game, if it’s not broke don’t fix it."

Kyrie Irving: I was taking fatigued shots

Irving won't let LeBron James take all the blame for the Cavs' Game 1 loss, saying he got tired: "It just wasn't in the flow of our offense. ... To get fatigued in the fourth quarter, and it's the playoffs ... it's not necessarily an excuse for myself and I've just got to be better."

Huge Game 2 on the line for Bulls, Cavs

In NBA history, teams in best-of-7 series have fallen behind 0-2 on 268 occasions. Only 16 teams -- or 6% -- have come back to win the series. The Cavs face that danger tonight when they take on the Bulls, who lead the series 1-0.

Bulls at Cavaliers, Game 2 tonight Derrick Rose: 14.0 PPG, 29.8 FG% on 1 day rest in 2015 postseason (Game 2 will be played on 1 day rest)

Can Bulls steal more on the road?

The Bulls are searching for their third straight road playoff win tonight in Cleveland. They have only four longer streaks in franchise history -- and Michael Jordan played on each of those teams.

The big 3-0 for Chris Paul!

Happy 30th birthday, CP3! We can guess what he'd like -- to have his hamstring cooperate and allow him to play in Game 2 tonight against the Rockets, to take a 2-0 series lead home to L.A., to dish out, like, a million assists, etc.

Ginobili taking month to decide future

Manu Ginobili, 37, to La Nacion: "It is not about whether I can play. It is about how do you feel or how hard is it to set your bag to travel to each city or to play five games in a week. Or playing 85 games in 165 days. So, this is a moment of uncertainty."
