Topics for today's episode include:

  • What should we make of Kevin Durant's reported lack of communication with the Nets' front office?
  • Can Brooklyn afford to play hardball with Kyrie Irving as he approaches free agency?
  • Would or should any of the teams with cap space roll the dice on Irving if the Nets don't meet his asking price?
  • Assessing the big-picture implications of the Nuggets letting Minnesota poach president of basketball operations Tim Connelly
  • Checking in on the conference finals
  • Do the banged-up Heat have any hope of extending their series against the defensively dominant Celtics?
  • With Jimmy Butler hobbled, Kyle Lowry looking cooked, and Tyler Herro out of commission, Miami has no off-the-dribble juice and can't do anything to counter Boston's drop coverage
  • Robert Williams is everywhere on defense
  • Bam Adebayo gets passive, Derrick White gets rolling (literally), and Jayson Tatum puts his refined playmaking chops on display
  • How much of the Mavericks' Game 4 win against the Warriors can be boiled down to them finally making their threes?
  • Dallas' offensive adjustments, Golden State's defensive slippage, and more off-ball activity from Luka
  • Are we headed for a showdown of the league's two best defenses?
