Happy Saturday, everyone. Here are today’s links.

ICYMI from Fear the Sword: The Cavs beat the Pacers last night, player grades for Cavs-Pacers, Cavs players are pissed about Isaiah Thomas’ shot selection, Kevin Love and Jeff Green had a moment

In case you have a social life or went to bed last night, Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins ruptured his Achilles and is reportedly out for the season. This absolutely sucks. Here’s SB Nation’s Tim Cato on what it means for the Pellies and Locked on Pelicans’ Jake Madison talked about the injury on an emergency podcast. In something that doesn’t really matter, there will be a new player joining the All-Star team due to Cousins’ injury.

From Deadspin: Fox Sports has not reported one lick on the Michigan State Larry Nassar scandal. Note the update at the bottom of the story.

At SB Nation, Michael Sykes writes about how good the Thunder’s defense is becoming.

Lastly, this podcast from Kevin Arnovitz and Tom Haberstroh on the Cavs, the Bucks’ coaching search and more is great.
