NBA May 11 | What You Need To Know

Russell Westbrook becomes the all-time leader in triple-doubles with his 182nd and he almost ended the game perfectly. So close. The Boston Celtics get some bad news concerning Jaylen Brown, the Los Angeles Lakers get some hopeful LeBron James news, and the Toronto Raptors get some better than no-news news regarding Masai Ujiri’s contract. All that, plus Steph Curry, Draymond Green and the Warriors upset the Utah Jazz in what could be a 1st round playoffs matchup, the young Spurs set a ridiculous franchise mark vs the Bucks, and there is a major battle for the last homecourt spot in the Eastern Conference.
