Like old times
Spurs forward Tim Duncan gets fouled while shooting against Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe during the second half of Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals in San Antonio. Duncan finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds in the Spurs' 108-92 win.
He can still jump
Clippers forward Blake Griffin, still bothered by a sprained right knee, did throw down this dunk on his way to 15 points and nine rebounds.
Spurs guard Danny Green is defended by Clippers guard Mo Williams. Green had 15 points, including three of San Antonio's 13 3-pointers.
Spark off the bench
Reserve guard Eric Bledsoe was a bright spot for the Clippers with 23 points in 27 minutes.
Clippers guard Chris Paul is double-teamed by Tony Parker (left) and Boris Diaw. Paul struggled with 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting and had five turnovers in the loss.
Setting the pace
Paul George (left) and Danny Granger leave their feet after the Pacers held on to a 78-75 win over the Heat to steal home-court advantage Tuesday. Indiana won despite shooting 38 percent from the floor to even the series 1-1.
What's your problem?
Referee Ed Malloy tries to separate Danny Granger and LeBron James during a hotly contested Game 2. Granger finished with just 11 points while James totaled 28 points, nine rebounds and six steals. But Granger walked away with the win.
I'll take that
David West grabs a rebound -- one of his 10 boards -- as the Pacers outrebounded the Heat 50-40. Indiana might continue to exert its will on the boards as long as Heat power forward Chris Bosh sits out with an abdominal strain.
Holding? What holding?
Mario Chalmers gets tangled up with David West during the second half Tuesday, though no foul was called on this play. The Heat did get to the free-throw line 29 times but shot only 69 percent, including critical misses by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in the fourth quarter.
All eyes on me
LeBron James played a game-high 43 minutes and finished with game highs in points (28) and steals (6) but missed critical free throws late in the fourth quarter that contributed to the Heat's three-point loss.

Pacers backup guard Darren Collison scores six of Indiana's 20 points off the bench. The Pacers were balanced on offense, as four players scored in double figures compared to the Heat's two.
Dwyane Wade scored 24 points on 8-of-22 shooting, but it was his final miss on a layup attempt which would have tied the score that was most costly. Wade and LeBron James combined for 52 of the Heat's 75 points.
Front and center
With Chris Bosh out for the Heat, Pacers center Roy Hibbert will have even more of an advantage inside in the series. Though he didn't put up huge numbers (eight points, 11 rebounds and three blocks), his size forced the Heat to take more perimeter shots. The Heat did not convert, hitting only 1 of 16 attempts in Game 2.
