James Harden scored a game-high 34 points in the series eliminating loss on Friday to the Blazers.
While the performance was strong here, it was too little, too late. Harden disappointed through the first five games of the series and failed to live up to the reputation he has deservedly earned as one of the best clutch players in the game. He will now have to settle for watching the rest of the playoffs on TV and formulate a better game plan for next season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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.

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
