Comedian apologizes for 'edgy joke' about Warriors' Green

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors and Anthony Davis #23 of the New Orleans Pelicans look on in Game Two of the Western Conference Semifinals during the 2018 NBA Playoffs on May 1, 2018 at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, California.

Utah shot just 39 per cent from the floor and 24.1 per cent from 3-point range.

Chris Haynes of ESPN has a great piece about the message Green sent to Durant as the team was preparing for game 4 after an especially demoralizing loss in game 3.

It was yet another reminder: In the National Basketball Association playoffs, where even a brief downward slide can be enough to end a season, even the best teams won't hesitate when they feel a need to shake up their starting lineups. That's some deep love they got for me if you're going to risk losing your voice trying to boo me. There were no hard feelings. "That was the thing - just try to play with force no matter if I missed shots or not, just keep shooting, keep being aggressive".

Durant didn't reply until he woke up, but his response was affirmative: "I got you", he told Green. I personally don't worry about it and No. 2 don't care that much about it.

New Orleans put together a solid performance in Game 3 to get back in the series and it looked like they had some momentum. "It was good to hear that from him".


"We're not thinking about winning three games; we're thinking about winning one game", Pelicans third-year head coach Alvin Gentry said in a Monday conference call.

"The guy has a triple-double nearly every night against us", Gentry said. He has 8.3 rebounds and 12.9 assists, huge numbers from a point guard. "It's kind of sad that someone would take this that serious".

While the Pelicans were still very much in the game when they fell behind 14-4 on Sunday, you could tell from the intensity that Golden State brought that this would be no walk in the park for New Orleans. "It just got the energy right to start the game".

Kerr believes his decision to insert Andre Iguodala into the starting lineup paid off for Golden State.

After getting blown out in Game 3, the Jazz needed to come out firing to level the series on Sunday but they were slow out of the gates and it cost them. "Who [expletive] cares? If someone wants to unfollow me, or mute me, how does that change my life in any way?" I was able to attack in different ways and it helps when your teammates are motivating you, urging you to go to work.
