Rose takes the blame for loss

Derrick Rose committed a critical turnover and defensive lapse in the final seconds of Chicago's Game 4 loss. He said postgame: "I put that all on me. Just wasn't paying attention to the ball. ... But if anything, this is a learning experience. ... I swear I'm built for it." Ready for next game

NBA top plays of the night

Bucks G Jerryd Bayless' season-saving layup with 1.3 seconds left to beat the Bulls in Game 4 earned him top play honors from Saturday's playoff games.


Jefferson, Felton questionable for Mavs

Steph Curry's stats standing out

In Golden State's sweep of the Pels, Curry averaged 33.8 points and 7.3 assists per game. The only players to post averages that high in both categories in a playoff series are MJ (three times), Jerry West (twice), Tracy McGrady and LeBron James. (via Elias)


ICYMI: Warriors finish off sweep

Key thing to keep in mind with Conley is if enters concussion protocol, it could be matter of days before he's cleared to resume play.
