Warriors Pull Away Late In Second Match Up With The Rockets

Published

on

The Rockets were short-handed on Thursday night going into the game without James Harden. Chris Paul did not have enough firepower to in the second matchup against the Warriors, losing 124-114.

Draymond Green’s 21st triple-double made him the franchise leader, he scored 17 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, Curry added 29 points and Klay Thompson had 28 hitting 6 three-pointers in the process.

“Obviously they were missing their best player without James so we felt like there was an opportunity for us,” Thompson said. The Warriors were out Kevin Durant during the game due to a calf injury, but they are still loaded with talent.

“They’ve been playing amazing all regular season, so you have to assume they’re going to be one of the last teams standing in the Western Conference,” Warriors guard Stephen Curry said of Houston. “We hope to be there, too.”

On ESPN Radio’s “Ryen Russillo Show,” Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey said that topping Golden State is “the only thing we think about.”  Guess after this game Morey will not be able to get any rest.

Gronk is back for one last ride with the Patriots. Gronk posted his return to the Patriots on IG.

“I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats,” Gronkowski wrote. “I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run. #bandsmakeherdance”

The 28-year-old tight end was closed to hang up his cleats after Super Bowl 52.

“I don’t know how you heard that, but I mean, I’m definitely going to look at my future, for sure,” he said. “I’m going to sit down in the next couple of weeks and see where I’m at.” When prodded even further, in terms of what it would take to get him to hang the jersey up for good, he staunchly maintained his position. “I’m not ready for these types of questions right now,” he said. I mean, I’m just going to sit down, reflect on the season, keep talking to my teammates…and just see what happens.”

Published

The Utah Jazz are on the verge of closing out the series against OKC. Just pause and take that all in. No one would have said the Jazz after losing Gordon Hayward in free agency would be up 3-1 against Russell Westbrook and Paul George. But thanks to Donovan Mitchell that is what we have on our hands.

The Jazz won an old-school physical game 4 against Thunder 113-96 on Monday in Vivint Smart Home Arena to take a 3-1 lead.

Donovan Mitchell scored 33 points, with seven rebounds and four assists behind 13-of-28 shooting from the field. The Jazz announced the guard surpassed Karl Malone’s franchise record for the most points in a playoff game, which the Hall of Famer set in 1986 with 31 points.

“We just stayed within ourselves,” Donovan Mitchell said. “We always say the strength of our team is the strength of our team. I said this morning we’re not really worried about one individual comment. I think if we get caught up in that it takes us out of our own game, and our play showed tonight that we really just focused on each other and made the right plays when we needed to.”
