Warriors coach Steve Kerr continues to feed our ears with so much more than basketball X’s and O’s.
Kerr, who has spoken out on Donald Trump, alternative facts and political policies in the past, went off script once again during his pregame press conference Sunday to give his sympathy to Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas, whose sister died in a car accident Saturday.
Before we start, I want to wish Isaiah Thomas and his family well, Kerr said to start his presser. Everybody in our organization is just devastated to hear the news. Can’t imagine what he and his family are going through. I want to wish them the best and we are thinking of them.
Harden told TNT after the game he wasn’t surprised Beverley stepped up big.
(Beverley) has been doing this since I’ve been here, Harden said.

The Thunder also could not contain the Rockets’ inside game. Houston out-rebounded OKC 56-41 and outscored them in the paint, 62-38.
As for Westbrook, he’ll look to put this tough game behind him. He scored 22 points, but hit only 6 of 23 shots. He added 11 rebounds and seven assists.
Draymond Green fell just one assist short of a triple-double in the Warriors’ 121-109 win over the Trail Blazers, but what he accomplished on the court Sunday was far rarer. According to the NBA, Green is the first player in the playoffs to post at least 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, five blocks and three assists since the 1973-74 season.
Trail Blazers backcourt mates C.J. McCollum (41 points) and Damian Lillard (34) combined for 75 points in Portland’s loss.
