4 takeaways from the Celtics' inability to close out the Cavaliers in Game 6
With eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, teammate Larry Nance Jr. went up to block a shot attempt from Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum and fell onto James’s shin on his way down. Although his replacement, Jeff Green, put up 14 points Friday night, the Cavs’ role players have struggled to find an offensive groove at the TD Garden.

Rockets keeping their 'same swag' despite the Chris Paul hamstring injury
Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza, and Clint Capela played a high level alongside Harden, with coach Mike D’Antoni finding the right role players to fill in around the edges. Paul wanted the ball in his hands less after all those years as the primary playmaker for the Clippers, and Harden was coming off a playoff collapse in the second round against San Antonio that had everything to do with his empty gas tank.

Ten of the 12 prospects who worked out in Denver last week fall into that category (Australian point guard William McDowell-White has until June 11 to withdraw and return to his professional team in Germany).
