The Thunder welcome Serge Ibaka back from injury, and hope he and their home court can change things around in this series that has been one-sided in the Spurs favor so far.

vjl110 has updated his models to include the combine testing information, allowing us to look at his "Bust, Bench, Starter, Star" model. How do the prospects stack up following the combine?

David Joerger will meet with Glen Taylor over the weekend, and presuming his approval is likely to become the next Wolves head coach (pending a compensation agreement with Memphis). The Lynx embark on a two game road trip tonight in Tulsa.

What Does Love Get You?

We've reached that point. Kevin Love can opt out of his deal in a year, the rumor mill needs feeding, and the Wolves can't seem to find a coach.They talked to some high picks at the combine. So Love is on the block. Or he isn't. (But he probably is).

The Wizards survive and get their series with the Pacers back to Washington for a game six while the Clippers lose a heart breaker to the Thunder to go down 3-2.
