Jorge Sedano: Fact. Despite all their lineup shuffling, the Nets had a league-best offensive rating of 117.3 this season. Interestingly enough, when Durant and Irving were on the court together without Harden, that number increased to 120.6. Couple that with Blake Griffin's reemergence and Joe Harris' steady shooting and it's not out of line to think they can win it all without Harden.Atlanta Hawks Face Coverings
Windhorst: The Jazz in the fourth quarter. They've blown some leads (don't ask about last year) but, whoa, have they looked like a championship team in the fourth quarter during this six-game playoff win streak. Games 3 and 4 in the Memphis series and Games 1 and 2 against the Clippers were all wide open in the fourth and the Jazz's mix of active defense, great shooting and Mitchell have secured 50/50 games repeatedly. It's championship stuff.

On Friday, the Phillies were trailing the Nationals 2-1 in the bottom of the ninth inning. Rhys Hoskins hit a leadoff double. Travis Jankowski pinch ran for him. A 2-2 pitch to J.T. Realmuto was bobbled slightly by Nationals catcher Alex Avila, who never lost control of the ball. With no outs -- where was he going on this play? -- Jankowski got trapped off second base. Avila ran right at him, and eventually tagged him out for an exceptionally odd catcher-unassisted putout. Avila made a very smart play, but it was assisted by terrible baserunning by Jankowski. The Phillies lost the game 2-1.

Boyer has high expectations for Hardee in his first season with the Jets, and rightly so. The Jets wouldn’t have signed Hardee if they didn’t think he could help improve their special teams unit.

Neither Packers CEO Mark Murphy nor G.M. Brian Gutekunst nor anyone else with the team would ever admit that they prefer that Rodgers stay away. Given that, if Rodgers stays away with three years left on his contract, it’s far more likely that the fans will get behind the laundry, as fans so often do, the Packers could end up much better off if he decides to stay away.Arizona Cardinals for Face Masks
