Houston would like for JB Bickerstaff to remain with the franchise and move to the front office but it's doubtful. Bickerstaff, who interviewed for the coaching job this week, pulled his name for consideration for the job.

The Raptors have a minus-24.2 net rating in the 76 minutes Kyle Lowry has sat during the playoffs. So yes, they're better when he is on the court regardless of his shooting struggles.

You will not mistake which Cavs player uses this locker.

Raptors F DeMarre Carroll: "There's no sugarcoating it, no sympathy, we sucked Game 1. We sucked, basically. Game 2, I guarantee you won't question our effort."

Yet sources stress Houston, while certain to talk to a wide array of candidates, is focused on proven NBA head coaches and rising assistants

Raptors F Luis Scola on PG Kyle Lowry via Toronto Star: "His shot looks right, everything looks right. The only thing that looks bad to me is his body language. He is beaten. And he shouldn't be. There's only two players as to why we're here, and it's him and DeMar DeRozan. He's the soul of our team. He's everything to us. I don't care if he misses every shot from now on. I'm ok with that. I'll lose with him. I'll lose with him because he took me all the way here."

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer on message to team after getting demolished by Cavs: "We're going home. It's one game. We're heading to Atlanta... When you get beaten soundly (like this), I think it does draw on pride."

Cavaliers beat Hawks 123-98 to take 2-0 series lead. The ViewFromVegas is they easily covered as 7.5-point home favorites and the game went over the betting total of 197 points.

Mucho memos.

Cavs are now 6-0 in the playoffs after a 123-98 win over Atlanta in Game 2.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Game 2 is finally over. Cleveland buried the Hawks underneath a three-point avalanche, drilling an NBA record 25 three-pointers in the game. Cavs win 123-98 as Hawks retreat to Atlanta down 2-0 and nowhere close to solving the LeBron hex. James is now 10-0 lifetime against Atlanta in the postseason.

Calvin Watkins ESPN Staff Writer 

If JB Bickerstaff doesn't remain with the Rockets in any capacity he could join the Los Angeles Lakers coaching staff. Bickerstaff has a good relationship with newly hired coach Luke Walton.

Marc Stein ESPN Senior Writer 

Can't speak to the NBA aspirations of either one, but sources say two college coaches who intrigue the Rockets are Shaka Smart and Bill Self

Congrats to the Cleveland Cavaliers for obliterating the all-time single-game 3-point record. Some night, gentlemen.

Kevin Harlan killing time in the middle of this blowout: "Did I tell you I went to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame yesterday?"

Knicks president Phil Jackson live-tweeting his road trip through Iowa and Nebraska during a time when the organization is searching for a coach is further proof that he couldn't care less what any of us think about him.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavs just tied the record for most made three-pointers in a regular season or postseason game with their 23rd trey of the night.
