The Cavs threw everything they had at the Warriors, and it still wasn’t enough.
Golden State moved one game closer to a sweep with a come-from-behind win in Game 3 on Wednesday night. Kevin Durant hit a clutch 3-pointer with less than a minute to go to put the Warriors up one, and they never lost the lead after that. Durant finished with 31 points while Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 61 points.
West says he has nothing but “love’’ for the Lakers, so he most likely wasn’t trying to jinx Johnson when he said on the “The Dan Patrick Show” that his old team can’t miss on the pick — although it might be viewed that way in light of Magic choosing not to bring West back to Laker-land.
“When you’re drafting at that position, you cannot afford to miss, you cannot afford it, particularly the Lakers at this point and time because they’re trying to build depth in the roster,’’ West said. “They’re trying to get to another level right now. So this is imperative for them to take the right player. If that’s Lonzo Ball, they’re going to take him.”
Some scouts project Ball to be another Jason Kidd, or an even better version of the future Hall of Famer. Then again, the vast majority of players selected in this spot since Durant has blossomed into a four-time scoring champ, MVP and the top finals performer this June have been disappointments, or worse. In many cases, they weren’t long for their teams and in a few Cheap Baseball Jerseys China celebrated instances, have been surpassed by Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys some of the Warriors’ core players who were drafted later.
