Blazers lead 55-48 at break. Key stat: Portland outscoring Memphis 30-18 in paint. Gasol & Z-Bo essentially non-factors at 3-for-12 FGs

Lillard and Aldridge playing like stars

It is loud inside the Moda Center, as the Blazers take a 55-48 lead on the Grizzlies into halftime. Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge have combined for 26 points, and Meyers Leonard added 13 off the bench. Follow live

Blazers have largest lead of the game as they are up 43-47. Meyers Leonard's 11 points off the bench might have something to do with it...

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Of course, it's perimeter D you've got to worry about tonight without Conley. For first time this series, Lillard getting past everyone.

Overshadowed by Meyers Mania: Blazers getting the best of the Grizzlies on the offensive glass, surprisingly.

Meyers Leonard is the difference right now for POR. Back-to-back 3’s. He’s got 11p on 4-4 shooting (3-3 from 3) in 8 min off the bench.

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Downside of playing Meyers Leonard: Memphis can hide Jeff Green on him instead of LaMarcus Aldridge in small lineup.

Bucks head back home ... for Game 6
NBA 

Michael Carter-Williams outplayed Derrick Rose, and the Bucks picked up their second straight win against the Bulls in Game 5 to stay alive. The Bulls lead the series 3-2.

7-0 Blazers run since Meyers Leonard and C.J. McCollum entered. The kids are alright?

Before replacing the injured Mike Conley tonight, Nick Calathes' last start came on February 12, 2014.

Grizzlies look to close out Blazers

Memphis can sweep the Trail Blazers, but it will have to be without Mike Conley. The Grizzlies PG suffered facial fractures in a 115-109 Game 3 win and is out indefinitely after surgery. Follow live

Bucks stay alive in Game 5 vs. Bulls

Michael Carter-Williams (22 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists) nearly had a triple-double, John Henson snagged 14 rebounds, and the Bucks forced a Game 6 back in Milwaukee with a 94-88 win. Box score
