Tristan Thompson and David West came face to face in an altercation that resulted in technical fouls for each player during the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday.
Pausing video of the encounter at exactly the right time produces an image of Thompson and West getting close — very close — to each other. As Twitter does, people started sharing their thoughts on the moment.
Elite Mens Allen Barbre Jersey Philadlephia (from Boston via Brooklyn) — Markelle Fultz, PG, Washington. The Sixers take the plunge on Fultz by trading away the No. 3 pick this year and another pick in either 2018 or ’19. Fultz will give the Sixers the backcourt scorer they’ve desperately needed, and they feel his ability to play off the ball will fit nicely with forward Ben Simmons, who will be a rookie this year, too.
L.A. Lakers — Lonzo Ball, PG, UCLA. There’s enough smoke around the heated rumors suggesting that the Lakers had second thoughts on Ball and decided to look elsewhere to think that there’s some fire to them. But it appears that there is merely some internal questioning about whether to make Ball the pick here, and that Ball is still in the mix, along with Jackson and De’Aaron Fox. And by draft night, when the smoke clears, the bet here is that Ball is the pick.

Well, that was fast. After a Thompson 3-pointer, the Warriors lead 47-35. It’s a 7-1 run to start the second quarter for Golden State. (Note: All of this occurred with James on the bench.)
Green earns his third personal foul only ten seconds into the second quarter. Kerr likely will leave him on the bench for the rest of the first half. Let’s see how the Warriors respond, particularly on defense.
