MIAMI - For Philadelphia, the season finale was about what's coming next year. For Miami, it's about what's coming next week.
INDIANAPOLIS - The Pacers finally have a chance to relax.
WASHINGTON - LeBron James' only visible significant role was that of postgame heckler, interrupting Michael Beasley's interview amid a loose, upbeat locker room that normally wouldn't jibe with a 21-point loss - or throwing in a towel in the race for a No. 1 seed.
WASHINGTON - Choosing rest for the playoffs over the pursuit of a top seed, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra gave LeBron James and Chris Bosh the night off Monday against the Washington Wizards.
INDIANAPOLIS - The Pacers were back to being themselves Sunday.
ATLANTA - Jeff Teague says he never doubted the Atlanta Hawks would be in the playoffs.
A look at where things stand in the NBA playoff picture, with five days remaining in the regular season:
NEW YORK - Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao will play an NBA game back home in Brazil for the first time when Cleveland takes on the Miami Heat in an exhibition in October.
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The intensity of the Memphis Grizzlies returned and so did the character of a team that has struggled the past two weeks.
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Miami guard Dwyane Wade will not play against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, but coach Erik Spoelstra indicated the Heat's second-leading scorer is close to returning.
A look at where things stand in the NBA playoff picture, with eight days remaining in the regular season:
MIAMI - A debated block at the buzzer. A season sweep of the NBA champions.
INDIANAPOLIS - Lance Stephenson shook his head in disbelief. All-Star starter Paul George repeatedly urged his Indiana teammates to get going, and All-Star center Roy Hibbert sat speechless on the bench during the final 30 minutes on the game.
MIAMI - Making one free throw at the end of regulation wasn't enough for the Miami Heat, nor was making just one again at the end of the first overtime.
MIAMI - James Jones could probably start for several NBA teams. In Miami, he typically doesn't get off the bench.
MIAMI - LeBron James is dealing with a few aches and pains, which obviously is not the best news for the Miami Heat with two weeks left in the regular season.
MIAMI - Miami has caught Indiana in the race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. That might be a problem.
MIAMI - For the first time all season, the Miami Heat are alone atop the Eastern Conference.
CLEVELAND - Sitting in the last chair on Indiana's bench, David West stared straight ahead, unable to look at the court.
