Kevin Durant's hometown return to the nation's capital was short-lived.Less than two minutes into Tuesday night's game against the Wizards, the Warriors star hobbled off the court, favoring his left knee, after teammate Zaza Pachulia tumbled backward into Durant on a rebound attempt in the first quarter.Golden State tweeted Durant hyperextended the knee he would undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the Joel Embiid Jerseys damage. He did not return to the 112-108 loss, heading instead to nearby George Washington Univesity Hospital for the exam, The Undefeated reported.. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said an update on Durant's condition will come Wednesday."We'll wait and see," he told reporters.Durant was able to walk around under his Custom NBA Jerseys own power and tried jogging gingerly toward the Warriors bench. He stayed on the court for another offensive possession before the team called a timeout and Durant met with the trainers and headed to the locker room.Durant exited with zero points, ending his streak of 562 regular-season games with Warriors Jerseys at least 10 points.The former NBA MVP is averaging 25.8 points, eighth-best in the league, with 8.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists in his first season with the Warriors, after spurning the Thunder, Wizards and other suitors around the league to join forces with the back-to-back Western Conference champions. A NBA Jerseys Washington, D.C., native, Durant, 28, stirred the pot earlier this week ahead of his anticipated homecoming, telling the Washington Post he "really just didn’t want to play at home" as a reason why he didn't consider the Wizards in free agency.
It's been well-documented that NBA elder statesman Richard Dwyane Wade Jerseys Jefferson still has hops, and that old-age athleticism earned the Cavaliers an extra point Wednesday night against the Celtics.After Jefferson hauled in an alley-oop from LeBron James right over Celtics guard Terry Rozier, Rozier fired back, literally. Rozier was immediately assessed a technical foul. This is the second time Kevin Durant Jerseys in his career that he has received a tech for throwing a ball at someone in frustration; he pelted the Hawks' Dennis Schroder in Game 2 of the teams' first-round playoff series last year.
BOSTON — Deron Williams was in the left corner when he took a crossing C.J. McCollum Jerseys pass from LeBron James, double covered near the top of the key. Williams was all alone and lined up a 3-point shot that would have put Cleveland ahead in the final seconds at TD Garden. Williams has made 44.4 percent of his 3s from the corner this year.“I thought Kristaps Porzingis Jerseys it was good,” Williams said. “Felt good. Looked good.”It wasn’t. The ball caromed off the rim and backboard, and the Cavs lost.Still, the fact that, in his Cleveland debut, James and the Cavs were comfortable having Williams take the last shot is indicative of how the team plans to Frank Ntilikina Jerseys use their new point guard going forward. Williams can be part of this team’s closing lineup, an added ballhandler to go with Kyrie Irving. He will be called upon to take big shots. He played 24 minutes on Wednesday, which is about the amount of run he can expect Klay Thompson Jerseys with the Cavs.For Williams, probably the most important aspect of his next few months with the Cavs is the ability to show, at age 32 and after a career packed with promising successes and puzzling disappointment, that he’s not done yet.“I think this is an opportunity to show that Golden State Warriors Jerseys I can still contribute to a winning team,” Williams said. “I don’t doubt myself that I can still play ... Here, there is the possibility of winning a championship. Competing, night in and night out. That was the most important thing.”Williams was not bad this season in Dallas, averaging Chicago Bulls Jerseys 13.1 points and 6.9 assists. His shooting was not great (43.0 percent from the field and 34.8 percent from the 3-point line), but he had a 40.1 assist percentage, his highest in five years. He is a poor finisher at the rim, which drags down his shooting numbers, but Gordon Hayward Jerseys he is an excellent midrange shooter, making 47.0 percent of his 2-pointers from beyond 16 feet, according to basketball-reference.com.
