Damian Lillard nailed the series-winning three at the buzzer to propel the Blazers into the second round with the Game 6 win over the Rockets. Lillard finished with 25 points, six boards, three assists, three steals, and a block.
Lillard is/has made a legacy for himself in Portland and through out the NBA not only with his clutch series-winning shot on Friday, but his ability to continuously make game-winning shots all season long paired with his MVP like play in the round one series versus the Rockets where he scored 20-plus points in five of the six games, including 30-plus in two of them.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
