The NBA playoffs are heating up with all second round series but, despite one Eastern Conference team's success so far, it looks like changes are on the horizon.

Elsewhere in postseason action two teams lost their perfect records on the court last night, whilst, in the NFL, one of Marcus Mariota's new teammates in Tennessee has predicted things might not be all that easy for the number two pick when he arrives at the Titans.

We begin in the NBA where the Chicago Bulls appear to be heading for an uncertain future despite their on court success.

The Windy city franchise are one-up in their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers and look poised for a deep postseason run but a new report from Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski today has suggested that the Bulls front office are still keen on firing head coach Tom Thibodeau even if they win the NBA title.

"Amid the twisted culture of Chicago's regime – where winning is losing, where success is failure – management can't wait to rid itself of one Tom Thibodeau."

The frosty relationship between Thibs and the Chicago hierarchy has been long documented and, if the report is to be believed, it looks like there is nothing the HC can do to convince his bosses that the tough-task master style he imposes is the way forward.


Meanwhile, on the court, both the Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards tasted defeat for the first time in the 2015 playoffs.

Having swept the Pelicans in round one, Steph Curry and co saw their second round series against the Grizzlies tied up at one a piece after a 97-90 reverse. The Wizards meanwhile lost Game two against their number one seed opponents the Atlanta Hawks.


Finally, in the NFL, Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger has received the backing of teammate Taylor Lewin.

Mettenberger is expected to lose his starting role to new arrival Marcus Mariota after the former Oregon star was selected by the franchise with the second overall pick of the 2015 NFL draft. Lewin, though, believes the second year QB is ready to fight for his spot against the hyped draft prospect.
