Fear the Newsletter: The West playoff picture gets clearer

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Playoffs-Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs, of course, were off Tuesday.

LEGEND HAS IT: The Cavs are off again today, but have a practice and media availability this afternoon.

ALL DUE RESPECT: Rockets 105, Thunder 99. Houston wins the series 4-1. Spurs 116, Grizzlies 103. San Antonio leads the series 3-2. Jazz 96, Clippers 92. Utah leads the series 3-2.

Tonight's games: Hawks-Wizards Game 5, Bulls Celtics Game 5

JOB WELL DONE: The puzzle is back! LeBron's go-ahead shot in Game 4 should not have counted.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. Today's show features a conversation with FanSided's Ian Levy about Cavs-Pacers.

CROWN: WFNY's Jeff Nomina on the Cavs' bench units. VICE's Jared Dubin on how Clippers-Jazz will be won and lost. BR's Jonathan Abrams has a great Q&A with Allen Iverson. WaPo's Tim Bontemps on the 90s version of Russ vs. Harden. And The Step Back's Chris Reichert on post game pressers stealing the show.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk again tomorrow.
