There's some buzz Billy Donovan is thinking about a starting lineup change and that was only fueled more pregame when he said he'd announce starters when he's required to, shortly before tipoff. The early thought is Dion Waiters slots in for Andre Roberson to give OKC more offensive punch, but we'll see what Donovan does.

Cavs have distributed faces to the crowd to distract Atlanta players. Among the ones I spotted: CLE players, Betty White, Ron Swanson, Macaulay Culkin, a clown.

Kyle Korver is 0-for-1 in 15 minutes. This after averaging 12 pts on 45 pct shooting from 3 in the first round. Great defense by J.R. Smith.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Paul Millsap is working hard to keep Hawks in the game with seven points and seven rebounds but Hawks aren't scoring. Also, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are either getting or creating good looks for others almost whenever they want against Atlanta's defense.

Red Sox announce that third baseman Pablo Sandoval will undergo surgery on his left shoulder. The procedure will be performed in the coming days by Dr. James Andrews. Sandoval is expected to miss the rest of the season.

McCutchen goes yard in first inning

Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen took Cubs RHP Jason Hammel deep -- the first HR he's given up this year -- to open up the scoring on ESPN in the NL wild-card rematch from last season.

OKC probably needs to keep an eye on this guy in transition tonight. Kawhi Leonard leaked out on several occasions in Game 1, and it hurt the Thunder significantly.

Tim Hardaway Jr. came up limping a bit after a drive to the basket toward the end of the first quarter. He appears to be OK, standing up and putting weight on ankle in between quarters. Cleveland leads 30-19 at the end of the first. Hawks' defense struggling as Cavs have made 6-of-11 three-pointers. Kyrie Irving has 10 points already.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Cubs are averaging six runs per game and a big reason why is they're drawing a lot of walks. They've walked in 13.5 percent of their plate appearances, something only 10 qualified hitters accomplished in 2015. The Cubs, however, don't lead the majors in OBP. That's their opponent tonight, the Pirates, who lead .375 to .359.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

The Q is going nuts. Cavs take an early 16-8 lead on the Hawks. CLE is 4-of-6 from 3. ATL not shabby either at 2-of-3 from deep.
