Randle led the Knicks to a 41-31 record in their first season under Tom Thibodeau, with a pair of 40-point games during a three-game season sweep of Atlanta.

Tobias Harris added 28 points and teamed with Curry and Simmons to carry the offensive load with Embiid out. Simmons had 19 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds.
Embiid was absent today and is expected to return against the Hawks in the semi-finals.
NBA Playoffs Results: Clippers vs Mavericks Game 5
The Dallas Mavericks take home Game 5 of this series. They also take a 3-2 lead against the Clippers before heading back to the American Airlines Center, Dallas.
The home team has not won in this series as the Clippers lost the first 2 games and then it was the Mavs who lost Games 3 and 4 in Dallas.
It was an exceptional performance from Luka Doncic who scored 42 points, dished out 14 assists, and had 8 rebounds. Doncic had four 3s in the first quarter itself but could not get himself to go in the last quarter.
Thankfully for the Mavs, Dorian Finney Smith’s defensive prowess came into play and they defended a 1 point lead in the end. Tim Hardaway Jr had ice in his veins converting the 2 free throws to take the lead to 3 points.

Irving scored 25 points and Durant had 24 for the Nets, who will face the Milwaukee Bucks in their first appearance in the second round since 2014. The No. 2-seeded Nets will host Game 1 against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks on Saturday.
The Celtics might have been unfortunate about Kemba Walker not playing the last 2 games but it did not look like the result could have been anything else.
NBA Playoffs Results: Nuggets vs Blazers Game 5
The Nuggets won despite Damian Lillard’s franchise playoff record 55 points and NBA playoff record 12 3-pointers, including long-distance shots that forced overtime and the second OT.
He eclipsed the mark of 11 set by Golden State’s Klay Thompson at Oklahoma City on May 28, 2016.
Nikola Jokic scored 38 points and came one assist shy of a triple-double. Game 6 will be in Portland at Moda Center.

The Suns won in Los Angeles on Sunday to tie the series and went right at the Anthony Davis-less Lakers in Game 5.
The Lakers put up little resistance, allowing Phoenix to score nearly at will while building a 30-point halftime lead — Los Angeles’ largest halftime deficit in 25 years.
