Slow starters in the first two rounds, the Los Angeles Lakers appeared to be in a hurry to put away the Denver Nuggets. It was a strong statement to their opponent - and maybe to the NBA's MVP voters. Anthony Davis had 37 points and 10 rebounds, LeBron James added 15 points and 12 assists hours after finishing a distant second in the MVP voting, and the Lakers rolled to a 126-114 victory on Friday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

Chris Paul’s days as a member of the Thunder may be numbered. But those hoping that he would find his way to Milwaukee to team up with Giannis Antetokounmpo may be out of luck. According to Eric Nehm and Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Bucks’ ownership is wary of Paul’s price tag — his contract calls for him to earn about $85 million over the next two seasons. Because Milwaukee is over the salary cap, constructing a trade for Paul would be difficult without including some combination of Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe and George Hill
