Leading into a TV timeout in Sunday's home loss to the Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was caught on camera appearing to complain about Draymond Green to assistant Mike Brown. "The lip-readers were wrong", Kerr said.
"I think he's going to be all right", Kerr said afterwards, per Mark Medina of The Mercury News. I talked to him briefly. As ESPN Stats & Info details, this win for the Suns marks only the second time in 20 seasons that an underdog of that size has won a game outright, with the last coming in 2016. A motivated Golden State is a scary Golden State.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Joel Embiid had 33 points and 12 rebounds in his first game in almost a month, leading the Philadelphia 76ers past the Indiana Pacers 106-89 on Sunday.
Rescue Under Way as Lagos Building Collapses
Building collapses are frequent in Nigeria, where regulations are poorly enforced and construction materials often substandard. Akinwunmi Ambode said buildings in the neighbourhood, Ita Faji, should have undergone integrity tests but landlords resisted.
"I expect our crowd to be little more into it, too", said Thompson, who scored 28 points against Phoenix. Kerr's squad struggled mightily from outside against the Suns, connecting on just 10 of their 43 shots from deep (23.3 percent). Kelly Oubre finished with 22 points, and Ayton added 18 points and nine rebounds. Even though the Warriors (45-21) still have the best record in the Western Conference, they were unable to close out against a team that was 5-29 on the road prior to Sunday's contest.
Tanking doesn't seem to be in the plans for the Suns, but they'll face a stiff challenge tonight in the Warriors in the second game of a back-to-back. They will be trying to keep their current streak going with a win over the Warriors, which will give them their fifth win in their last six games. His 102 postseason games are most ever for any Golden State player. Phoenix outscored Golden State 18-10 in the final five minutes to take the 115-111 win at Oracle Arena in Oakland - the team's fourth win in five games. Following that matchup, they have five games left on the schedule before the postseason begins.
