A reminder as Game 1 of the West Finals nears: Jamal Murray, per his all-business routine, likely took a FIVE-HOUR NAP today to be at his best. That and much more from the Nuggets' rising star from our convo here, at @TheAthletic https://t.co/6i7WmSLQbu

Murray naps five hours. Jokic doesn’t nap at all. https://t.co/Dfl5gPGxCW

Antetokounmpo said he left the meeting he had with Marc Lasry encouraged and that they're on the same page. You can check out more details of that meeting at @TheAthleticWISC. His sentiment echoes much of what @sam_amick and I wrote here: https://t.co/GfWBagVHri

Two years ago, Jaylen Brown shared that he didn't always get along with Marcus Smart. Afterward, I spoke to both players about why they bumped heads and how they overcame it. The answers seem even more relevant now. My story on their current place: https://t.co/SyllKBtm55

"What were we settling?" LeBron James didn't seem to feel a huge sense of loss at not being able to play the Clippers. @sam_amick takes you inside the NBA bubble for more on that, and all the drama in the Eastern Conference series. https://t.co/hizS9XhSl7

How much did chemistry issues contribute to the Clippers' demise? How will the tight-knit Nuggets fare against the Lakers? Today on The Lead, @sam_amick breaks down how we got to the Western Conference Finals from inside the NBA Bubble. 🎧 Spotify: https://t.co/iKIe2flGOS https://t.co/07eyKmYs4B

“It had been nearly 10 minutes since the tweeting began, and you could still hear the yelling coming through the door.” @sam_amick takes you behind the scenes for Boston’s bedlam, plus moments with Michael Malone and LeBron ⤵️ https://t.co/XXKNEVM1G5

Gordon Hayward is progressing toward returning for Game 3 of Celtics-Heat after feeling good in Wednesday’s post-practice workout, a source with knowledge of the situation told @TheAthleticNBA. He expects to get more on-court work Friday with the hope of playing Saturday.

There was a lot to take in outside of that chaotic (and loud) Celtics locker room last night. Jaylen Brown’s bouncing left leg. The men at the door waiting for the all clear. Here’s a look at what you couldn’t see, or hear, on TV, at @TheAthletic https://t.co/TJVST2e5Ro

Sources: Boston’s Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown had heated confrontation after Game 2 loss, needed to be separated. Details on @TheAthleticNBA: https://t.co/7NZr4V2pD7
