After 'unacceptable' effort, the Kyle Lowry-less Raptors look within for answers (Ball Don’t Lie)

On the other, the Toronto Raptors fell … like … waaaaaaaay short on Thursday night. Toronto never led, falling behind 20-9 midway through the first quarter as Westbrook set the table for Victor Oladipo and Enes Kanter to run roughshod on the Raptors. After getting within one basket with a brief early second-quarter run, Dwane Casey’s club never really threatened again, allowing the Thunder to shoot 53.4 percent from the field as a team and knock down 14 of 25 3-point tries en route to building a 32-point third quarter lead.

The Spurs could end up regretting their late stumble against the Blazers (Ball Don’t Lie)

Kawhi Leonard was terrific, but the Spurs missed an opportunity on Wednesday. It’s been a good few weeks for the San Antonio Spurs, who suddenly have a very good chance of besting the Golden State Warriors for homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs. Saturday’s rest-ravaged win over Golden State and Monday’s victory vs. the Atlanta Hawks put San Antonio in the No. 1 spot in the West via tiebreaker, and the Warriors’ continued poor form (despite Tuesday’s narrow win) continues to open up an opportunity for the Spurs.

Chandler Parsons to undergo knee surgery, ending a brutal first season in Memphis (Ball Don’t Lie)

Chandler Parsons’ disappointing first season in Memphis may be over. The curtain has finally fallen on Chandler Parsons’ disappointing first year with the Memphis Grizzlies. The team announced Sunday that the 28-year-old forward will “undergo a meniscectomy to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee” on Monday, a procedure that the Grizz expect to keep Parsons on the sidelines for the rest of the 2016-17 season, playoffs included.

Spurs remain shorthanded as they entertain Hawks (The Associated Press)

Just who actually takes the floor for the San Antonio Spurs when they battle the Atlanta Hawks on Monday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio won’t likely be known until the final hours before tip-off. The Spurs (51-14) were without four injured players, including starting forwards Kawhi Leonard (concussion protocol) and LaMarcus Aldridge (minor heart arrhythmia) and guard Tony Parker (back stiffness) on Saturday but still waylaid the reeling and shorthanded Golden State Warriors 107-85 in a game between the top two teams in the NBA and the Western Conference. The blowout win was mitigated by the fact that the Warriors rested four players, guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, forward Draymond Green and key reserve guard Andre Iguodala, and that forward Kevin Durant is still out indefinitely with a knee injury.

Grizzlies aim to tighten up on defense vs. Hawks (The Associated Press)
