📅 On this day in 2021, the @Golden State Warriors Draymond Green had 10 points, 13 rebounds, and 15 assists in a 123-108 win over the Pelicans.
It was Green’s seventh 15-assist game of the season, breaking a tie with LeBron James for the most such games in a single season by a non-guard. pic.twitter.com/D9S4N7ijK01:01 PM

James Harden now has 18 career playoff games in which he’s shot less than 40% from the field and committed five or more turnovers.
Since the NBA began tracking individual turnovers in 1977-78, only LeBron James (22) and Russell Westbrook (20) have recorded more such games. pic.twitter.com/S1qLtzrsx09:31 AM

DeAndre Jordan got waived for DJ Agustin by a Lakers team that finished 33-49 and was so thin inside that LeBron started at center.
So yeah… I’d say the bad DJ minutes are not surprising. – 8:21 PM

Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot has hired Dru Joyce III as his associate head coach. Joyce, who was a teammate of @LeBron James and played for Dambrot at St. Vincent-St. Mary, was previously an assistant at Cleveland State. – 2:19 PM

Stephen Curry on LeBron James and Kevin Durant not being in this stage of the playoffs:
“You’re still going to see those guys back, Bron, KD, all those guys you mentioned. It ain’t like they’re just going to ride off into the sunset either.” pic.twitter.com/yNSW2XR6Yt7:03 PM
