5/24/2016 Russell Westbrook, OKC, PG
Oklahoma City moved within one win of eliminating defending champion Golden State, thanks in part to Westbrook's first career postseason triple-double.

Analysis: The star point guard, who had 18 triple-doubles in the regular season, finished with 36 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in Tuesday's 118-94 home win that gave the Thunder a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Finals.
5/24/2016 Kevin Durant, OKC, F
Durant contributed 26 points and 11 rebounds in Tuesday's blowout win over Golden State.

Analysis: Durant is averaging 29.9 points and 7.4 rebounds in his last nine games for the Thunder, who are one win away from getting back to the NBA Finals.
5/24/2016 Andre Roberson, OKC, G-F
Roberson stepped up with 17 points, 12 rebounds, five steals and two steals in Tuesday's 118-94 home win over Golden State in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

Analysis: Roberson set career highs in points and steals, while matching one in rebounds. He averaged 4.8 points during the regular season.
5/24/2016 Klay Thompson, GS, G-F
Thompson tried to keep Golden State in Tuesday's blowout loss, finishing with 26 points while hitting 4 of 11 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The Thunder, however, have done a nice job against him and Stephen Curry. Thompson has shot 8 for 27 from beyond the arc over the past three games.
5/24/2016 Stephen Curry, GS, G
Curry didn't look much like himself again Tuesday. He finished with 19 points on 6-of-20 shooting in a 118-94 loss at Oklahoma City in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

Analysis: Curry doesn't seem to be over his recent injuries. He's gone just 5 for 21 from 3-point range in the past two games - both blowout defeats.
5/23/2016 Kyle Lowry, Tor, PG
Lowry scored 35 points, including a driving layup in the final minute, as the Toronto Raptors evened the Eastern Conference finals by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-99 in Game 4 on Monday night.

Analysis: Lowry, who had 20 points in Toronto's Game 3 victory, scored 18 while shooting 8 of 28 over the first two games of the series.
5/23/2016 DeMar DeRozan, Tor, G-F
DeRozan finished with 32 points on 14-of-23 shooting in Monday's 105-99 win over Cleveland that evened the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2.

Analysis: DeRozan's early postseason woes seem to be behind him as he's averaged 27 points on 48.1 percent shooting over his last seven games.
5/23/2016 LeBron James, Cle, F
James finished with 29 points, nine rebounds and six assists Monday, but it wasn't enough in a 105-99 loss at Toronto in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: James hasn't scored less than 20 points in any playoff games this season. He's also shooting 64.4 percent over his last four games.
5/23/2016 Kyrie Irving, Cle, G
Irving had 26 points on 11-of-21 shooting and six assists in Monday's loss at Toronto in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: Irving bounced back after finishing with 13 points on 3-of-19 shooting in Game 3, though it wasn't enough as the Raptors evened the series.
5/23/2016 Kevin Love, Cle, F-C
The Cavaliers will have to find a way to get Love back on track after he finished with 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting in a Game 4 loss at Toronto.

Analysis: Love has totaled 13 points on 5-of-23 shooting in the last two games - both Cleveland defeats.
5/22/2016 Kevin Durant, OKC, F
Durant scored 33 points, Westbrook had 30 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds, and Oklahoma City rolled to a 133-105 victory on Sunday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Analysis: Durant made 10 of 15 shots and Westbrook was 10 of 19. It was the first time this postseason both players shot better than 50 percent from the field.
5/22/2016 Russell Westbrook, OKC, PG
Durant scored 33 points, Westbrook had 30 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds, and Oklahoma City rolled to a 133-105 victory on Sunday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Analysis: Durant made 10 of 15 shots and Westbrook was 10 of 19. It was the first time this postseason both players shot better than 50 percent from the field.
5/22/2016 Stephen Curry, GS, G
Curry, who banged his elbow in Game 2, wasn't much of a factor in Sunday's blowout loss at Oklahoma City in Game 3. He finished with 24 points while missing 8 of 11 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Aside from a brief barrage in Game 2, the Thunder have done a nice job against Curry in this series.
5/21/2016 LeBron James, Cle, F
James finished with 24 points, eight rebounds and five assists in Saturday's 99-84 loss at Toronto in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: James didn't get a whole lot of help as the Cavaliers suffered their first loss of the postseason.
5/21/2016 Kevin Love, Cle, F-C
Love struggled with three points on 1-of-9 shooting in Saturday's 99-84 loss at Toronto in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: Since totaling 48 points and hitting 13 of 27 from 3-point range in the final two games against Atlanta, Love has averaged 12 points on 40 percent shooting in his last three.
5/21/2016 Kyrie Irving, Cle, G
Irving finished with 13 points on 3-of-19 shooting in Saturday's 99-84 loss at Toronto in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: Irving had been a big reason Cleveland jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this series, totaling 53 points on 23-of-39 shooting in those contests. We expect him to bounce back in Game 4.
5/21/2016 Bismack Biyombo, Tor, C
Biyombo stepped up with a Toronto franchise-record 26 rebounds and four blocks in Saturday's 99-84 victory in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: We'd like to see more out of Biyombo since he totaled nine boards in the first two games of this series.
5/21/2016 DeMar DeRozan, Tor, G-F
DeRozan led the way with 32 points in Saturday's 99-84 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: DeRozan seems to have solved his early postseason struggles. He's averaging 26.2 points over his last six games.
5/20/2016 Stephen Curry, GS, G
Curry insists he's fine after yet another postseason injury.

Analysis: Curry banged his right elbow on what he thought was a metal platform after diving into the stands at the 2:54 mark of the first quarter during Wednesday night's 118-91 Game 2 win over the Thunder. "It's fine. The swelling went down, so no worries," he said following Friday's practice.
5/19/2016 LeBron James, Cle, F
James had a triple-double and the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed postseason perfect through 10 games with a 108-89 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Analysis: James had 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as the Cavs became the fourth team in NBA history to start 10-0 in the playoffs, joining the Los Angeles Lakers (1989, 2001) and San Antonio Spurs (2012).
