Blazers are on restriction

Portland's shooting woes have been especially bad everywhere except right at the rim, as Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge can attest. The two Blazers starts are a combined 0-for-11 outside the restricted area as the Grizzlies continue to cruise. Follow live


No answer for Beno from Blazers

Beno Udrih has 8 points off the bench, all on jumpers, to help the Grizzlies to a 10-point lead after the first. Portland's 25% shooting ties a season low for a quarter, and the Blazers' 15 points tops their worst quarter of the year by just 3 points. Follow live

Is good start a bad omen for Hawks?

You'd think that it's always a good thing to win Game 1, as the Hawks did against the Nets, but that hasn't been the case for Atlanta lately. Each of the last 3 times the Hawks won the first game of a postseason series, Atlanta went on to lose that series (2011 second round, 2012 first round, 2014 first round).
