The NBA playoffs are expected to resume after a work stoppage on Wednesday, following a players’ meeting in which it was decided that the players would finish the season, according to multiple reports.

However, there are legitimate concerns about their offense, especially their offense on the perimeter.
The Lakers offense, particularly their jump-shooting, was the subject of a piece in which ESPN’s Kirk Goldsberry closely examined the ability of the Lakers to hit jumpers. According…
NBA players made history on Wednesday, led by the Milwaukee Bucks, as they engaged in a strike of the day’s scheduled playoff games.
