Golden State was the dominant of the two teams competing in the NBA Finals and threatened to sweep Cleveland had they not pulled off a historically efficient Game 4.
Out West, Golden State re-signed Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, and veterans Zaza Pachulia and David West. They then signed Nick Young to the mid-level exception, drafted Jordan Bell out of Oregon, and signed sharpshooter Omri Casspi.
The Rockets also made a play at contention by dealing much of its depth for Chris Paul. They also re-signed Nene and added P.J. Tucker, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, and Tarik Black via free agency.
In Cleveland’s own backyard, the Cheap Quality Baseball Jerseys Celtics have also emerged as challengers to the throne. After adding both Gordon Hayward and Marcus Morris without trading Jae Crowder — and also drafting Jayson Tatum amid the emergence of Jaylen Brown — Boston has the frontcourt depth to potentially offset the talents of the world’s greatest basketball player.
Moore led all scorers early, gouging the East for nine points within the first six minutes of play. Her third three-pointer was followed by a mischievous smile to Coach Reeve as if to say, “That looks familiar, doesn’t it?” The West held a 35-30 advantage at the conclusion of the first quarter.
While Sue Bird was telling Holly Rowe that she’d like to see more handles from the guards, Jonquel Jones, a 41% shooter from three-point range on the season, took that as her cue to show off her versatility in the second quarter. Jones’ back-to-back three’s handed the East a 44-42 Cheap Qld School NBA Jerseys lead midway through the second quarter — their first lead of the night.
“Jonquel Jones is going to be a problem in this league for a long time,” said Taurasi. “With her stature, the way she can handle and shoot the ball, and she works so easy on the court. I just think she’s got a really bright future.”
