Season on the brink for Raptors

2014-15 was Toronto's best regular season in franchise history. But with one more loss to Paul Pierce and the Wizards, a season that once saw title hopes for the Raptors would come to a crashing halt. Follow live

Love hurt on Olynyk foul

It's impossible to draw any definitive conclusions from a still image, but if Kevin Love really believes Kelly Olynyk's hard foul was intentional, this picture certainly won't dissuade him. 'Bush league,' says Love


This is why he's @JCrossover

Clippers guard Jamal Crawford lived up to his Twitter handle with an ankle-breaking crossover on Tim Duncan and a silky smooth finish at the rim.


Clippers respond with big Game 4 win

Home-court advantage is back in L.A.'s hands. Chris Paul knew he had to play better after Game 3's loss, and he answered with 34 points and 7 assists. The Clippers tied the series 2-2 with a 114-105 win over the Spurs. Box score

Clips can't close door on Spurs

Kawhi Leonard made one bad decision on a heat check of a jumper, but he has San Antonio right back in the thick of it with less than 2 minutes remaining in the fourth. Chris Paul (30 points, 7 assists) has been huge; can he keep L.A. from going down 3-1? Watch live

Wow. Back to back threes from Kawhi Leonard. It's now 106-98. Some Spurs fans had already started heading for the exits.

Six could nix Clippers' hopes

Chris Paul has fouled out of 9 games in his career, playoffs and regular season included. His teams are 0-9 in those contests.

Chris Paul is staying in the game for now because, well, they have no depth. Lester Hudson isn't playing in this spot.

Chris Paul takes the fifth in fourth

It's a good thing for the Clippers that Austin Rivers is on fire, because CP3 just picked up his fifth foul with over 8 minutes remaining in regulation. All 5 Paul fouls have come in the second half. The Clippers' lead hovers at just a shade under double digits ... for now. Watch live on ESPN/Watch ESPN

Stephen A Smith @stephenasmith

Wow! I'm about to faint. Austin Rivers is balling. Possibly saving the Clippers season right now. Clips have extended the lead w/ DJ out.

A Redick-and-Rivers fast break in the fourth quarter of a crucial game. The NBA playoffs never cease to amaze


Austin Rivers has 13 points off the bench for the Clippers. The rest of the bench has combined for 8 points.

Popovich has all the answers

There's nothing like a between-quarters Gregg Popovich interview. Why are the Spurs losing? "Too many fundamental errors." How can they fix that? "More attention to detail." Sounds about right! Watch live


Clippers out in front after three

The good news for Chris Paul & Co. is L.A. took its biggest lead of the game late in the third quarter and is up on the Spurs 81-76 in a game with 18 lead changes so far. The bad news is that Paul has 4 fouls with 12 minutes left. Watch live
