PLAYOFF BUZZ

SPEAKING

''The Eagles need to look into that. It was great. It was probably a foul. It was a great screen, I was wide open and it was all due to Sam.'' - Philadelphia's Kyle Korver on the physical pick set by Samuel Dalembert that enabled Korver to sink the winning basket with 5.1 second left in the 76ers' 89-88 win over Utah on Friday night.
