  • Grabs team-high 13 boards
    Porter produced 14 points (5-16 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 43 minutes during Thursday's 104-93 victory over the Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: Porter hauled in a team-high 13 rebounds in the win, continuing what has been a solid postseason to this point. While his shot certainly wasn't a thing of beauty, he found other ways to contribute on both ends of the floor. He appears to be fully healthy after a number of back issues over the past few years, something that should have Nuggets fans very excited. 31 minutes ago
  • Haywood Highsmith drops 18 in Game 1 loss to Nugs
    Haywood Highsmith finished Thursday’s loss to Denver with 18 points, two rebounds, two steals and two triples.

    Advice: He shot 7-of-10 on the night and logged 23 minutes off the bench, marking his second game with at least 15 points and 20 minutes in his last three appearances. Highsmith logged some extra minutes due to Denver's big lead, but he and Kyle Lowry helped get Miami back within striking distance in the fourth quarter, and Highsmith scored 12 in the final frame. Highsmith hasn't been a big part of Miami's rotation for most of the season and postseason, but he's delivered when given the opportunity. Perhaps Erik Spoelstra gives him a little extra playing time in Game 2. 31 minutes ago
  • Muted performance Thursday
    Butler racked up 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal in 38 minutes during Thursday's 104-93 loss to the Nuggets in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: Butler filled the boxscore in the loss but was noticeably passive on the offensive end. He has been arguably the best player throughout the playoffs to this point, meaning there is likely to be some fatigue setting in. He will be doing everything he can to keep the Heat alive, starting with Game 2 in Denver on Monday. 38 minutes ago
  • Goes missing in Game 1 loss
    Martin contributed three points (1-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one block and one steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 104-93 loss to the Nuggets in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: Martin was unable to maintain his momentum Thursday, scoring just three points on 1-of-7 shooting. Coming off a heroic performance in Game 7 against the Celtics, he came crashing back to earth against a much more well-rounded Nuggets outfit. Given what we know about Martin, he was always going to regress after putting together a historic shooting performance thus far in the playoffs. With that said, look for him to deliver an improved effort Monday. 41 minutes ago
  • Aleksej Pokusevski suffers fractured right arm
    Aleksej Pokusevski suffered a small fracture of his right humerus bone during a workout in Oklahoma City on Wednesday. 

    Advice: Pokusevski's 2022-23 season came to a premature end due to a left knee contusion, and now he's dealing with another injury. Poku suffered a small fracture of his right humerus bone (upper arm) and will be re-evaluated in four to six weeks. Given the timeline, Pokusevski should not be at risk of missing the start of training camp in September. However, the recent injury issues are a concern regarding his ability to consistently contribute to the Thunder rotation and be of value to fantasy managers. Today, 7:06 pm
  • Suffers right arm fracture
    Pokusevski suffered a small right humerus fracture May 31 and will be re-evaluated in four-to-six weeks, Clemente Almanza of the Thunder Wire reports.

    Advice: Pokusevski has had some tough injury luck lately, as he missed over half of his third NBA season with a total of 34 games played. Fortunately, he still has a lot of time to recover in advance of training camp with the Thunder. With an improved three-point shot and a knack for blocking shots, Pokusevski has the potential to play a big role for the Thunder. Today, 4:14 pm
  • Playoff Caleb ends Boston's season w/ 26/10 line
    Caleb Martin was blisteringly hot Monday, hitting 11-of-16 shots for 26 points and adding 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal.

    Advice: Martin was feeling it all evening, and he hit four of his six three-point attempts while finishing behind only Jimmy Butler (28 points) for team lead in scoring. Martin had his coming out party in the ECF, averaging 19.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.1 triples and making a case for ECF MVP. He and other Heat role players such as Gabe Vincent and Duncan Robinson stepped up in big ways with Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo sidelined, and without their steady contributions, this series win would not have been possible. There’s a chance Herro is back for at least part of the Finals, but after such a stellar series against Boston, there’s no way Martin’s role is marginalized. From Charlotte outcast to Eastern Conference hero, Martin's story is a true rags-to-riches tale. We're anxious to see how he follows it up against Denver. Monday, 11:25 pm
  • Ironic: Butler wins Larry Bird Trophy as ECF MVP
    Jimmy Butler delivered 28 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and three triples Monday as the Heat defeated the Celtics 103-84 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Himmy Butler led all scorers in this one, as he willed his team to yet another improbable victory. This one was perhaps the most impressive of all, as all the momentum in this series seemed to be with the Celtics after three straight wins. Butler averaged 24.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.1 assists in the seven-game series, avenging a loss to Boston in Game 7 of the ECF exactly one year ago. The Nuggets are monster favorites to win the NBA Finals, but as we've seen through Miami's run through the East, Butler and Co. shouldn't be counted out so easily. Game 1 of the Finals tips off in Denver on Thursday, and the Heat have opened as 8.5-point dogs. Monday, 11:18 pm
  • Injured Tatum limps his way to 14/11/4 in Game 7
    Jayson Tatum turned in 14 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a triple Monday in a 103-84 loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Tatum shot 5-of-13 from the field and committed two turnovers. He turned his ankle on the first play of the game, and didn’t look the same the rest of the evening. The superstar forward could be seen grimacing in pain after multiple shot attempts and rebounds, and he limped down the court for most of his 42 minutes on the court. Notably, Tatum went 15-of-15 from the charity stripe in Game 6, but he attempted only four free throws in this one, showing his lack of aggression, likely due to the early injury. It’s a terrible ending to the series after Boston rallied to win three straight, and fans will never truly know what the outcome would have been had Tatum been healthy. The Celtics now face an offseason that will be riddled with questions surrounding the head coach and the star pairing of Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Monday, 11:08 pm
