Contrary to the surprise expressed by fans and announcers after Korver snuffed Brown's soul, Korver has been good blocking shots over his career. His career blocks per 100 is the same as Kobe Bryant and Paul George.
[Redick] “What would really help [Ben Simmons] is playing off the ball, in terms of cutting and ducking in. He did it at times this year and when he does it’s phenomenal. That’s one of the reasons Dwyane was able to score in the high 20s in his prime. If Ben adds it to his game it’d be huge.”
Tatum: "I mean I just enjoy playing in the big moments, in the big games. I think that's when I have the most fun, when there are things on the line. A lot of guys stepped up tonight and I can't say enough about us being one win away from the Finals especially after everything we've been through."
[MacMahon] Mike D'Antoni on Chris Paul's foot: "I called him after Game 3, and he said, 'Coach, I'm telling you, if I can get my foot right, we'll beat these guys.' Lo and behold, he got his foot right. And just like I said, we're back to even."
[Warriors PR] Injury report for tomorrow night's Game 5 at Houston: Andre Iguodala (left lateral leg contusion) & Klay Thompson (left knee strain) are questionable. Patrick McCaw (lumbar spine contusion) is out.
[Alex Kennedy] Lonzo’s dad reiterated that Lonzo Ball is willing to take less money on his next NBA contract so the Lakers can continue surrounding him with talent. He said the same goes for Gelo/LaMelo, if they join Lakers. He’s confident they’ll make enough off the court to sign at a discount.
