LeBron James in playoffs
NBA 

For the 4th time in his career, LeBron James played a game where his team could eliminate the Celtics from the playoffs. He scored 45 points in a Game 7 loss in 2008, but since then he's won all three, despite his scoring dropping in each contest.

Cavs sweep the series, winning Game 4 101-93 but could have lost Love and J.R. for a spell in the process. LeBron 27p 10r 8a; Kyrie 24p 11r

Celtics season ends with a 4-game sweep vs. Cavs that doesn't properly represent way this team competed. Insanely enjoyable season to cover.

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

Spurs have left Blake Griffin open on 75% of his jump shots this series (15-of-20). Griffin is shooting 33% (5-of-15) on those open jumpers

Watch: Clippers at Spurs on ABC
NBA 

The Spurs are looking to take a commanding 3-1 lead over the Clippers, as teams taking that lead go on to win the series 96.4% of the time. The Clippers have never come back from a 2-1 deficit in playoff history, going 0-for-5. Basically, if the Clips want a chance at this series, they need a W today. Live on ABC/WatchESPN

I really hope Jae Crowder doesn't have a serious knee injury. He's played his way into a nice contract since going from Dallas to Boston.
