LeBron James and Dwyane Wade make their way into work. The Cleveland Cavaliers star entered Friday night’s game with the Chicago Bulls by cashing in on a World Series bet made with pal Dwyane Wade, walking into Chicago’s United Center while wearing a Chicago Cubs uniform at the behest of Cub-fan Wade, after James’ Cleveland team lost in seven games to the Cubs in the World Series (note: neither of these players really roots for either of those teams).
In addition to toppling a marquee opponent and preserving its undefeated record, Gonzaga achieved something far more satisfying Saturday evening. Przemek Karnowski scored 18 points and Josh Perkins had 16 as Gonzaga hung on for a 69-62 victory over a 16th-ranked Arizona team decimated by injuries and other issues. Only once did Arizona mount any semblance of a charge, pulling within five with just over a minute to go after a 12-4 spurt aided by six Gonzaga missed free throws.
It’s not hard to find out how Draymond Green felt after picking up a flagrant foul Thursday night when his leg flew up after a foul and caught James Harden in the face. Just go to his Twitter feed. Saturday at Warriors’ practice, Green expanded on the subject, here’s the video via Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News. If you prefer to read are Green’s comments transcribed: “I just laugh at it. It’s funny how you can tell me how I get hit and how my body is supposed to react. I didn’t know the league office was that smart when it came to body movements. I’m not sure if they took kinesiology for their positions to tell you how your body is going to react when you get hit in a certain position.
