The Thunder star was spotted turning around and taking a swipe at a fan's phone. George had a playoff-low five points.

Westbrook had 46 points for the Thunder and Steven Adams tallied 19 points and 16 rebounds.

Mitchell hit two free throws to ice it, and the Jazz are headed to the second round to face the Houston Rockets. Jonas Valanciunas turned in a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Casey said the losses were uncharacteristic of how the Raptors have played on the road this season.

Beal was named an All-Star for the first time during the regular season and finished with per-game averages of 22.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.5 assists. If DeMar DeRozan is concerned, Pacers or Cavaliers - it doesn't matter much.

IN did it by playing old-school post-season basketball - hard, aggressive and relentless. Lue provided no injury update after the game.

The Wizards' 2016-17 ended largely because the supporting cast around John Wall and Bradley Beal did not do their part in the decisive game. No foul was called. He must continue to play that way with Fred VanVleet (shoulder) expected out Game 6 again. Wall put up 26 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.

Jerry Jones makes it clear that Dez won't be returning
Bryant amassed more than 1,000 yards receiving, with double-digit touchdowns, for three straight seasons from 2012 to 2014. The receiver is apparently willing to wait up to two weeks after the draft before deciding where to go next.

It was enough to keep the Pacers in charge most of the game. Of his own team, he said, "You can't just do it with one or two players".

"We need his scoring, we need his playmaking, we need his toughness, we need his ability to get into the paint", Brooks said. We played smart basketball.

"I'm still looking for that manual that says you can't play that second unit".

"No, no", he said. "I think we needed that. But, um, I haven't thought about (the future)".

The Toronto Raptors survived a ferocious first round and have advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals. But it was a single-point lead that quickly slipped away.

The Washington Wizards were always more talented than a typical No. 8 seed, so it should surprise no one that they have pushed the No. 1 Toronto Raptors to a Game 6 Friday night back in Washington, D.C. The Wizards were 23-18 (16-24-1 ATS) at home during the regular season, the worst home mark of the 16 playoff teams. The North won this war, and the Wizards were bounced a round earlier than they were the previous year.

The Wizards shot 61 per cent in the third quarter, while the Raptors had five three-pointers to lead by one with a quarter left. "It's a different team", VanVleet said.

For just about everyone else who's had any role in this Boston-Milwaukee series, however, this is new or relatively new territory. "You know, me running the team and playing defense and stuff, I can do those things in my sleep". After Washington's Markieff Morris dunked with 4:06 left, Wright replied with a 3 and, after a missed shot by Wall, converted a layup off a pass from DeRozan to give the Raptors a 99-93 lead with 2:59 remaining.
