Mission Impossible: African-Americans & analytics

The mission was to find black folks who spend time -- any amount of time -- talking about sports in terms of advanced analytics, and the mission failed. Why are blacks not feeling the sports metrics movement?

Question of the Night: Why would Kevin Durant ever leave the most athletic team in the league?

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN

Rick Pitino said he expects Chinanu Onuaku to stay in the NBA draft. Nothing official yet, though, from the Louisville big man.

The Draymond Green tripping video on the big screens is a staple of every timeout. They haven't shown Russell Westbrook's trip yet.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Russell Westbrook is well on his way to a triple-double. Steph Curry is well on his way to a 3-1 deficit.

Ethan Sherwood Strauss ESPN Staff Writer 

Curry has been awful. Now 1-of-10 with 2 missed FTs

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Steph Curry has missed a wide-open 3 and a free throw. The apocalypse is here.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Stephen Curry either isn't entirely healthy, or the Thunder are just doing an exceptional job on him. He's had 3 blocked by Steven Adams, and hasn't been able to finish at the rim. Just 1-8 shooting midway through the second.

The most underrated play of the series was Durant reaching over to help Kanter vs. Curry in Game 1. Blew up a Warrior advantage w/out moving

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chesapeake Energy Arena big screens have shown Draymond Green's trip of Enes Kanter many times, including during this timeout.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Steph Curry has more turnovers (2) than buckets (1-8 FG). Golden State is fortunate to be within a quick strike.

Ethan Sherwood Strauss ESPN Staff Writer 

Curry's missed a few around the rim so far. Now 1-of-8

Marc Stein ESPN Senior Writer 

A strong first interview, according to NBA coaching sources, earned David Fizdale a return trip to Memphis to meet with Grizzlies officials

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Dikembe Mutombo says of Raptors C Bismack Biyombo: "He doesn't need my permission to do (the finger wag). Bismack is my youngest brother. I have nothing to be made at him for." Mutombo and Biyombo text frequently with Mutombo always sending Biyombo positive messages of support.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Russell Westbrook kicked his left leg out on that missed 3 looking to draw a foul on Draymond Green, then tripped him.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Steve Kerr is giving the Death Lineup another go. Oklahoma City gladly goes small, too.

J.A. Adande @jadande

Kevin Durant has turned into the best goalie in the NBA. You can't get anything past him.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Free throws: Kevin Durant 8, Warriors 7

Ethan Sherwood Strauss ESPN Staff Writer 

Durant's defense has had a big early impact

Ethan Sherwood Strauss ESPN Staff Writer 

GSW now within 2. Better effort on defense than at the start
