Jermaine O’Neal suffers sprained knee and strained groin in Warriors’ win over Jazz


The Warriors had no trouble with the Jazz on Saturday and cruised to an easy double-digit win as expected. But the team lost backup center Jermaine O’Neal in the process.

O’Neal went down early in the fourth quarter after slipping along the baseline, and had to be helped off the floor. It didn’t look good, and additional tests are scheduled for Sunday to assess the extent of the damage.

The 17-year veteran has been reliably serviceable for the Warriors this season, appearing in eight of the team’s 10 games and posting averages of 5.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and a blocked shot in 17.3 minutes per contest.

Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).

They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.

Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.

The Clippers went north of the border to take on the Raptors in an exhibition game, but it was on the West Coast of Canada in one of the world’s prettiest cities — Vancouver. The two played at the Rogers Arena.

Where, they may want to upgrade the shot clocks behind the backboards. Watch over the shoulder of the Clippers announcers as Griffin dunks in warmups.

Notice that DeAndre Jordan loves this.

Nice to see Griffin dunking like his old self again. If you want another view, the NBA retweeted this.
