The countdown to 16 wins has been stuck at 10 for the past two games. The Cavs would like to cross off win No. 11 tonight.

Panic? What panic?

LeBron James is "very calm" ahead of tonight's pivotal Game 5, and it could be for good reason: In his career, James' teams have gone 6-6 in Game 5 with the series tied 2-2. He averaged 32 points, 8.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists in those games. Sense of urgency

In the regular season: Russ-KD-Waiters-Roberson-Ibaka was -31 in 46 minutes total. Then on ice for two rounds. And now +49 against Team 73-9

Regular-season records don’t guarantee rings

The Warriors wouldn't be the first team to win the regular season but miss out on a title.

AMAZING. Russ, KD, Ibaka, Roberson and Waiters played ZERO minutes together in the first round of the playoffs. In this round? They're +49

Avery Bradley wasn't just the top vote-getter at the guard position, he was third overall in points behind only Kawhi Leonard and Draymond Green.

Two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard was unanimously selected to the 2015-16 NBA All-Defensive First Team, the NBA announced on Wednesday. Leonard is the only player this season to receive all 130 first-team votes (260 total points) from the panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. The only Spur to ever win multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards, Leonard also became the first San Antonio player to be named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team in back-to-back seasons since Tim Duncan in 2007 and 2008. In 27 of the last 30 seasons, a San Antonio Spur has been named to the NBA All-Defensive team.
