New, comments

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Playoffs-Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics David Butler II-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 were off yesterday, but had their first practice since finishing their sweep of the Raptors.

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

ALL DUE RESPECT: Celtics 123, Wizards 101. Boston leads the series 3-2 with Game 6 taking place Friday in D.C. If Boston wins, Game 1 of Cavs-Celtics will be on Wednesday, May 17 in Boston.

Tonight's games: Spurs-Rockets Game 6 at 8 p.m. San Antonio leads the series 3-2.

JOB WELL DONE: Why Kyrie is due. Check out The Chase Down. And Ty Lue, jokingly, says he wishes the Cavs knew their defensive schemes as well as their handshakes.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. Today's show looks at Cedi Osman's Euroleague season and what his future with the Cavs look like.

CROWN: Deadspin on why women's college basketball fans don't follow the WNBA. SB Nation's Mike Prada on the Wizards capturing D.C.'s attention. The Summit's Howard Megdal on how Breanna Stewart will follow up her rookie season. VICE's David Roth on Kobe still being obsessed. And SI's Lee Jenkins has a great feature up on the Warriors.

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