Beverley and Westbrook got tangled up once, but there were no fireworks.
Nah, Steve Kerr refuses to think about it that way. They not appreciate his work with them on the court, but the vibe he created in the building from the moment he took over after the players struggled through a season where Kevin McHale was sacked after just 11 games previous year. Westbrook shares some of those fire-breathing, snarl-in-your-face characteristics, and when you pit those similarities together, you get sparks. "You can't account for that stuff".
They guy did everything.
The best-of-seven Western Conference series continues Thursday in Houston.
"All we did is defend our home court, and that's what we're supposed to do", he said. "... In theory, we're not the hunted". And for good reason, throughout the regular campaign, OKC led the National Basketball Association (46.6) in rebounding; whereas, Houston (44.4) ranked eighth.
Amnesty International Says Judicial Executions Declined In 2016
The group estimated that several thousand people were put to death past year , without detailing how it arrived at that estimate. The United States was not among the global leaders, the first time since 2006, falling to seventh place behind Egypt.
On a day Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum put on a dazzling display of shot-making for Portland, the NBA's top-seeded team of superstars found its touch down the stretch and defended with objective. He brings it every game.
The Blazers lost all four regular-season meetings but went 17-6 down the stretch.
One of the keys to Houston's late-game rout was the disparity in second-chance points.
All of that is in the past, Durant assures. We know this is a different season, a different team, just a different year. Get back in transition obviously for Westbrook. "We have to go back to the drawing board and see what we did wrong and see what we can do better and go from there".
"We talk about it all year how smart he is and how he figures it out and it just takes him a little bit to know that he can get to the rim". But it ended up leaving gaping holes in the middle of the paint as bigs like Adams, Enes Kanter and Taj Gibson found themselves switching out onto guards on the perimeter and unable to recover in time to either contest the shot or be in good rebounding position. He stopped doing that after being slammed by the pick, but his defense didn't let up.
Josh Brolin Cast As Cable In Deadpool 2
Josh Brolin has nabbed the hotly contested role of Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Other actors that had been mentioned included Michael Shannon and Brad Pitt, both of whom had some "leaked" concept art released.
Durant averaged 29.3 points against Portland and Curry 27.3. Westbrook just stuck to his "why not?" attitude and may have turned in the best single season a player has ever had. After the crushing disappointment of last year's 41-41 record and underachievement, when former teammate Dwight Howard came to town in February and stopped by the Rockets' locker room to say hello to old buddies, Beverley called for security to have him tossed out.
The Blazers would prefer to forget that 135-90 debacle of a defeat at Oracle on December 17 - the largest Warriors' margin of victory in the rivalry.
In the first round, Golden State will play the Trailblazers.
"It was a team effort in just trying to show him a lot of bodies", he said. But Butler overcame a united Garden crowd and led Chicago to the victory, scoring 23 points in the second half.
Now, Thompson isn't afraid to say it: The Warriors plan to be playing for another two months.
Is Bannon in peril? Trump comments worry his populist base
Remember, a family meeting was partially responsible for Corey Lewandowski's firing as campaign manager in the primaries. Of course, the wild card here is this: If Bannon is eventually ousted, does he train Breitbart's sights on Trump?
I say that as a virtual matter of fact, if we are to believe the voting numbers gathered by the Rocket blog The Dream Shake, in which they've compiled all of the votes that have been made public by selecting media members. It's a new slate and we're chasing that trophy.
