Rockets report: Terrence Jones remains focused on fixing ‘effort’ issues in Game 4

Rockets forward Terrence Jones, who had six points in five rebounds off the bench in Game 3, would rather look ahead than look back on Saturday night’s ugly result. “I mean, I don’t know,” Jones said about what happened to the Rockets in a 115-80 home loss to the Warriors. “I’m not a guy that […]

Warriors’ flight delay no biggie: ‘We’re all well-rested’

The Warriors arrived for Saturday morning’s shootaround and acted as if nothing happened the day before, when their flight was delayed six hours — causing them to miss practice and land in Houston about 10 p.m. The team’s charter plane was supposed to leave Oakland for Houston at 10 a.m. Friday, but 15 minutes after the scheduled takeoff time, it was announced that the plane needed a new part. Being told that the flight would be delayed until 1 p.m., the players dispersed and the coaches went to the downtown Oakland practice facility to watch game video. With the NBA down to its...

Mychal Thompson had an early seat on Warriors’ bandwagon

Mychal Thompson had an early seat on Warriors’ bandwagon Edited transcript of a conversation with Mychal Thompson, former NBA player, current Lakers’ broadcaster and the father of the Warriors’ Klay Thompson: Can you revisit why you thought that as early as January? Let’s stick with the guy who won the MVP and the NBA is such a star-driven league, it’s your son’s “Splash Brother,” Steph Curry. Is he the MVP of the league? There are three guys, maybe four when he’s healthy, OK maybe five. What’s Klay’s mind-set as he draws James Harden in the Western Conference...

Hawks’ Korver out for rest of playoffs

X-rays at Philips Arena were negative, but a follow-up MRI procedure and examination at Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic confirmed a severe high-ankle sprain.

Warriors finally get to Houston for Game 3 after six-hour delay

HOUSTON — The Warriors arrived for Saturday morning’s shootaround with smiles, despite a delay-filled day of travel Friday.

James powers Cavs to 2-0 lead over Hawks in East finals

James powers Cavs to 2-0 lead over Hawks in East finals LeBron James scored 30 points and the Cavaliers took total command of the Eastern Conference finals even without injured star Kyrie Irving, beating the Hawks 94-82 on Friday night for a 2-0 lead with the series heading to Ohio. “How much does it help to have LeBron on your team?” Cleveland head coach David Blatt said, repeating a question incredulously. James scored 11 points, the Hawks shot just 32 percent (7-for-22), and Cleveland led by as many as 20. The final margin, with backups on the court, was as close as the Hawks had...

Rockets out to show that Houston is still Clutch City

The Houston Rockets are down two games to none to the Warriors. The Rockets seem to thrive when the heat and airlessness in a series become suffocating. The Rockets rallied back from the dead against the Clippers. 17 months earlier the Oilers blew a 32-point lead in the NFL playoffs, losing to the Buffalo Bills in overtime. The catchphrase is even emblazoned on a T-shirt that is an unabashed ripoff of the classic Warriors “The City” logo. Nothing has come easily for the Warriors, who spent so much of the regular season on cruise control. The key for us going into the next game is...
