Let's see if we can get an NBA playoff game within 30 points this weekend, mmkay?

Charlotte had its chance in Game 6. Should've played Lin more, put Whiteside on line more. Game 7 was foregone conclusion.

Kerr on Curry: "He actually got on the floor yesterday and did some shooting, but it was kind of stand still shooting. There wasn't a lot of movement. There was some, but he's progressing well. Obviously won't play today. We need to get him on the court before he's going to play in a game. He has to be on the floor in a 5-on-5 situation which means it's pretty slim that he would be out there in Game 2. But we'll just monitor him and see how it all goes and hopefully get him back at some point."

Miami dominates in Game 7! Heat advance to Eastern Conference Semifinals after blowing out Hornets, 106-73.

Not even sure what to say or do with this. Heat fans catch a lot of, well, heat nationally. But they showed up on time and kept it hostile and loud for Game 7.

Can Charlotte keep rising in the East?

That'll do it. The Hornets, who had a 3-2 series lead, are eliminated with a 106-73 Heat win in Game 7. Charlotte, which shot the fourth-most 3s on average in the regular season, had success getting into the paint for three wins. But Miami gets 58 points in the paint and 58 rebounds to close out the series and won the turnover battle, 9-10.

Game 7 Final: Heat 106, Hornets 73. Miami advances to the Eastern Conference semifinals to face the winner of the Indiana-Toronto series. The Heat are huge Pacers fans tonight, considering an Indiana win in Game 7 gives Miami home court advantage in the next round. Goran Dragic scored a game-high 25 points and emerges from a relative series-long slump just in time.

Hornets and Heat pull all of their starters (outside of rookie Frank Kaminsky). A bummer of an ending for a scrappy Hornets team that seemed on their way to the franchise's first series win since 2002.

I'm still not sure who the answer is, but it might be someone none of us picked (Hassan Whiteside).
