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.
NFL star J.J. Watt had been quietly dating professional soccer player Kealia Ohai for about a year before going public with their love in January. The pair, who met through Watt’s Houston Texans teammate Brian Cushing (Cushing is married to Ohai’s older sister Megan), are “very happily dating” while balancing busy training and traveling schedules, a source tells PEOPLE. “We’re both very proud of each other and what we both do,” Watt, 28, told PEOPLE at a pre-Super Bowl event in February.

When the local media treat the firing of a head coach as a formality, one trends to treat it as such.
