I promised you more from the rookie photo shoot, here is our own Kay Adams (you know, the woman who makes me look good on PBT Extra) this time talking with Kings rookie Ben McLemore.
Kay is nice, doesn’t even ask him once what was up with the shooting slump during Summer League (the Kings aren’t worried, by the way). They do talk about playing in Sacramento, and McLemore gets the history of his jersey number (it was Peja Stojakovic’s number… the Kings hope McLemore can shoot like that).
Stephen Curry dumps ice on mid-interview Klay Thompson, who says ‘I’m still hot’ (video)
The Celtics couldn’t have asked for a much better look on their final possession, but Al Horford missed this layup to give the Rockets a 107-106 win last night.
Maybe Isaiah Thomas should have gone to the line for getting pushed over by Montrezl Harrell, but I’m not 100% sure Harrell should’ve been called for a foul. Besides, that Thomas screen sprung Horford for the layup. I’d take my chances with that barely contested close-range shot.
Michael Beasley, Davis Bertans ejected from Bucks/Spurs for being third/fourth into altercation
This should have been the usual NBA altercation — two guys jawing with nothing physical happening because teammates step in, everyone does their posturing, and we move along. Monday night in the Spurs eventual win over the Bucks, Greg Monroe and Dewayne Dedmon got tangled up going for a rebound, Dedmon threw a little elbow, Monroe pushed him off, and the two started the well choreographed NBA dance.
