The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are both known as high-scoring, three-happy squads that would rather run from end to end than get bogged down in a game played in the halfcourt. Golden State shot 51.1 percent from the field with 33 assists, with the star trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green accounting for 76 points on 30-of-57 shooting (52.6 percent) by themselves. The Warriors’ fine offensive showing included a 21-7 run over most of the final seven minutes of the first quarter that made it seem as if the Rockets would be in for a long night.
Lonzo Ball said on Tuesday that he’s better than another player most see as superior to him: Washington point guard Markelle Fultz. In fairness to Lonzo, though, the margin between the UCLA point guard and Fultz is a universe closer than the one between his father LaVar and Michael Jordan. The Vertical’s Jonathan Givony currently has Fultz going No. 1 to the Celtics in his latest mock draft with Ball going to the Lakers with the second pick.
Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr discusses how he would fare in today's NBA, if Michael Jordan would take more 3's if he played today and why he's never dunked in a game or practice.
