Taj Gibson, Chicago Bulls
The Bulls backup big man made highlight reels with his dunk over Dwyane Wade last postseason. Gibson is a force on both ends of the floor, giving Chicago scary depth in the frontcourt.
Norris Cole, Miami Heat
The rookie point guard could be Miami's version of Rajon Rondo, complementing the Heat's Big 3. Cole is an instant shot of offensive energy.
George Hill, Indiana Pacers
The Pacers have more than a few potential X-factors on their roster, but Hill was just inserted into the starting lineup and gives Indiana a tough two-way point guard.
Avery Bradley, Boston Celtics
Bradley made the most of Ray Allen's injury, jumping into the starting lineup and holding on to the spot despite the Allen's return. Bradley and Rondo combine for one of the fastest backcourts in the NBA.
Iman Shumpert, New York Knicks
Shumpert has become the Knicks' utility man, especially since Jeremy Lin when down. Shumpert can play three positions and often finds himself guarding the opponents' best player.
Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks
Is he in or is he out? Horford has missed most of the season with a pectoral injury but could return before the postseason begins. However, the Hawks big man told reporters "I don't feel like it is realistic that I can play for the playoffs."
Stan Van Gundy, Orlando Magic
Without Dwight Howard and his job security on dangerous ground, Van Gundy has his work cut out for him in the playoffs. Stan can make a stand in Orlando if he can coach up the Magic in the playoffs.
Spencer Hawes, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers big man missed time this season and the team suffered because of it. With Hawes back in the paint, it frees up Elton Brand and adds to Philadelphia's deep roster.

The Red Sox will be out to avoid the sweep tonight as they have dropped the first three games of this series and are riding a four-game losing streak overall. The offense has been able to do nothing during the skid as they have scored a total of nine runs over the four games and while they were underdogs the first three games in this series, those were against C.J. Wilson, Jered Weaver and Garrett Richards and they take a step down in opposing pitching tonight. The Angels meanwhile has won three straight games and seven of their last eight to take over the lead in the American League West by a game and a half over Oakland. They visit the A's starting tomorrow so there could very well be a lookahead going into that big series. The recent run has given Los Angeles the best record is baseball but it is 5-14 in its 19 road games this season against American League starting pitcher whose ERA is 4.00 or better. Rubby De La Rosa has a 3.79 ERA on the season and that goes down to 3.25 at home in six starts with four of those resulting in quality outings. He is coming off a poor start against the Astros where he allowed six runs in four innings but he allowed six runs in a game about a month ago and followed that up with a quality outing and I expect the same tonight. The Red Sox are 5-1 in De La Rosas six home starts. The Angels go with Matt Shoemaker who has a very comparable ERA but has not been very consistent, especially on the road. He has a 2.72 ERA at home but that balloons to 5.70 on the road and while he has been winning, he has been fortunate to get great run support which I feel comes to an end tonight. Play (966) Boston Red Sox
