According to Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News, San Antonio wants to meet with Kawhi Leonard "in a bid to mend fences and pave the way for Leonard to come to terms" on a supermax contract.

As we know, Leonard only played in nine games last season and decided to rehab his quad injury in New York. Thus, he was not with the Spurs on the bench during the playoffs, which rubbed many in the organization the wrong way. However, the fact remains that Kawhi is one of the five best all-around players on the planet. Starting July 1st, the Spurs can offer a five-year, $219 million contract.

Kevin Love had nine points shooting 3-of-12 from the field with 11 rebounds and three assists, but also had six turnovers and five fouls in the Cavaliers' Game 4 win over Boston on Monday.

Love was limited to 28 minutes due to getting five fouls early on in the second half. He also tied a season-high with six turnovers. He'll have to improve on his 3-of-12 shooting if the Cavs are going to pull off a road win. Love did have a highlight full court pass to LeBron that he dropped on a dime past multiple Celtics defenders.
May 22 - 12:33 AM

Al Horford scored 15 points and had seven rebounds and an assist in Boston's Game 4 loss to Cleveland on Monday.

Horford went 5-of-13 from the field, tying for his worst shooting performance of the postseason, and contributed to the whole team going 19-of-40 in the paint in Game 4. He averaged just 11.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists in Games 3 and 4, compared to 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5 assists in Games 1 and 2.
May 22 - 12:19 AM

Terry Rozier scored 16 points and had six rebounds, 11 assists and three steals with no turnovers in Boston's Game 4 loss to Cleveland on Monday.

Rozier's 11 dimes are a career-high and he had a turnover-free night, but the Celtics still never led after the 7:31 mark in the first quarter. The Celtics are just a different team on the road. Rozier and the rest of the C's are more than likely ready to get back to the Garden where they're 9-0 in these playoffs.
May 22 - 12:08 AM

Jaylen Brown had 25 points to go along with six rebounds, two assists and two steals in Boston's 111-102 Game 4 loss to Cleveland on Monday.

Brown bounced back from his less than stellar 10 points in Game 3 on Saturday, but it wasn't enough for the Celtics to snag a win on the road. He's now scored over 20 points in three of the four games in the ECF and with the series heading back to Boston, there's no reason to not expect another solid performance in Game 5.
May 21 - 11:55 PM

Kyle Korver scored 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting with four rebounds and three blocks in Cleveland's 111-102 Game 4 win over Boston on Monday.

Korver may not have had the most insane stat line, but his hustle was unrivaled in Game 4. He was chasing down loose balls, hitting the deck going after them. He had three blocks, which was a game-high. Many have talked about the Celtics out hustling the Cavs in Games 1 and 2, but the tables turned in the Q.
May 21 - 11:47 PM

Tristan Thompson scored 13 points and had 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in the Cavaliers 111-102 Game 4 win over the Celtics on Monday.

Thompson came up big with his third double-double of these playoffs. He logged 38 minutes, his most of the entire season, and had six FGM, his most of the playoffs. Thompson playing 38 minutes was in large part due to Kevin Love getting into foul trouble early, but he's playing a bigger role for the Cavs as these playoffs go along and he should see another heavy load of minutes in Game 5.
May 21 - 11:36 PM

LeBron James scored 44 points to go along with five rebounds, three assists and a steal but also had seven turnovers in Cleveland’s 111-102 victory over Boston on Monday.

LeBron with another 40-plus point night, what’s new? This is his sixth 40-plus game of these playoffs, the most since Allen Iverson in 2001. However, his three assists were a low for these playoffs. Regardless, The King dominated this game shooting 17-of-28 from the field and has made this a series again. Even with Boston being 9-0 at home in the playoffs, LeBron in the late stages of the Eastern Conference Finals is enough to make any team a little nervous.

The X-ray on Andre Iguodala's left leg contusion returned clean. Iguodala is day-to-day and is listed as doubtful ahead of Game 4 against Houston on Tuesday.

Iguodala could be out for Game 4 and break up the "death lineup" for the Warriors. If he does have to sit expect Kevon Looney to start and more minutes for Nick Young and Shaun Livingston.

Tyronn Lue hinted that Larry Nance will be more involved in the rotation for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals.

"His energy, his athleticism, his ability to switch and guard multiple positions is good for us," Lue said of Nance. "When he’s rolling to the basket, he got a couple dunks [during Game 3], and when they pull in to help, now you’ve got Kyle Korver and J.R. [Smith] making 3s. His athletic ability and his force rolling to the rim is really key for us." Nance had fallen out of the rotation during Cleveland's second-round series, but he was a key cog in the Cavs Game 3 win on Saturday with eight points, six boards, three dimes and three steals over 21 minutes.

Patrick McCaw (back) is unlikely to make it back to the court this postseason.

He's improving, but it's been a slow recovery process and at this stage in the postseason it would be tough to re-incorporate McCaw back into the lineup. He was having a down year anyway, so there are no guarantees he'd be a significant part of the rotation at this stage, even if healthy.
May 21 - 5:57 PM

Chris Paul downplayed the left calf issue on Monday and confirmed that he'll be ready to go for Tuesday's Game 4 in Golden State.

"I'm OK, I'm OK. Trying to get treatment and all of that and be ready for tomorrow," said Paul. When asked specifically what he's dealing with, Paul replied: "No, I'm cool. Just trying to figure out what we can do to make adjustments to win Game 4." CP3 did not look 100% during Sunday's Game 3 loss, and he was seen getting worked on early in the game while he was on the bench, but obviously, this won't be an issue that forces him to miss any game-time action.
May 21 - 5:01 PM

Andre Iguodala (knee soreness) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Rockets.

Iguodala hurt his left knee during the closing seconds of Sunday's Game 3 win, and it sounds like it may have swelled up on him overnight. He's headed for an X-ray and we'll be awaiting those results, but we'll have a better idea on his status following Tuesday morning's shootaround. If Iguodala is forced to sit out Tuesday's game, Kevon Looney would likely move into the starting lineup and there would be more minutes available for guys like Nick Young and Shaun Livingston. Stay tuned.

The Raptors interviewed Jerry Stackhouse last week in Chicago for the team's open head coaching position.

Stackhouse is the current head coach of the Raptors G League affiliate, Toronto 905. He's been interviewed by multiple teams like the Magic and Hornets and his name has also been tied to the Pistons. It could just be a matter of time before Stack is a head coach at the highest level.

DeMarcus Cousins will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and the Mavericks are expected to pursue not only Cousins, but also DeAndre Jordan and restricted free agent Julius Randle.

It may be nothing, but Cousins was caught liking an Instagram comment that said he should be paid the max. The Mavs would more than likely offer that if talks were to get serious. As for Jordan, everyone remembers his fiasco with the Mavs and Clips back in 2015 when he went back on his verbal agreement to go to Dallas, so it comes as somewhat of a surprise they would still be interested. Randle's decision will be affected by how the Lakers handle his restricted free agency.
