13 2018
Marvin Bagley III dominated at Duke Youth Mike Hughes Jersey , while fellow freshman Michael Porter Jr. barely saw action at Missouri due to injury. Yet theyll likely be the first forwards to hear their names called during Thursdays draft.

Bagley is a possible No. 1 overall pick and double-double machine with a long frame. But many considered Porter to be the top NBA prospect in last years class as he works to prove hes past the back injury that required surgery and limited his college career to just three games.

Heres a look of the top forwards in the draft:

MARVIN BAGLEY III

Bagley lived up to all expectations, being named The Associated Press player of the year in the Atlantic Coast Conference and a first-team All-American .

STRENGTHS: The 6-foot-11 forward checks a lot of boxes: athleticism, inside-out ability, length. He averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds while shooting 61 percent from the floor and nearly 40 percent from 3-point range. He has good touch around the rim Nate Solder Jersey Giants , the ability to shoot over defenders and was a strong finisher.

CONCERNS: Bagley is still developing defensively, particularly when it comes with what is happening away from the ball. He also tends to be too left-hand reliant at times and needs to improve going the other way.

MICHAEL PORTER JR.

The injury creates plenty of uncertainty and makes the 6-10 forward a bit of a wild card, one who could return top-of-the-draft value for a mid-lottery price.

STRENGTHS: Porter was considered by many as last years top recruit with his scoring, playmaking ability and athleticism. He was a McDonalds All-American in high school after averaging 36.2 points and 13.6 rebounds per game during his senior year.

CONCERNS: Theres little to evaluate with Porter against college competition considering he was hurt minutes into the season opener. He didnt play again until the postseason. Its unclear if the injury will limit his ceiling in any way.

MILES BRIDGES

Michigan States sophomore is a versatile lottery prospect in a pro-ready 6-7 body.

STRENGTHS: Bridges did a lot of things well last year while averaging 17.1 points Youth Houston Texans Jerseys , 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Hes strong enough to both tussle with bigger players and overpower perimeter forwards. And he was excellent at the foul line (.853) to cash in when drawing contact.

CONCERNS: Bridges needs to continue honing his perimeter skills. He shot nearly 39 percent from 3-point range as a freshman, but slid to 36 percent last year.

MIKAL BRIDGES

The 6-7 junior swingman developed into a potential top-10 pick for national champion Villanova.

STRENGTHS: Bridges offers the desired combination of 3-point shooting and defensive ability, a valuable package in todays NBA. Bridges shot nearly 44 percent from behind the arc. He also has the length to be a disruptive defender after leading the Wildcats with 61 steals.

CONCERNS: Bridges needs to add some more strength to a lean 209-pound frame. He also blended in offensively on a deep and efficient offense, so he didnt need to show a lot when it came to creating his own shot.

KEVIN KNOX

The 6-9 freshman out of Kentucky brings a stretch-4 skillset with good size and shooting range Youth Taron Johnson Jersey , making him a possible lottery pick.

STRENGTHS: Knox has NBA shooting range, fluid offensive moves and the ability to get out in transition. He showed his high ceiling with 34 points on 11-for-17 shooting with five 3-pointers in a win at West Virginia in January.

CONCERNS: He was a bit of a streaky shooter at times who hit just 34 percent of his 3-pointers. He also could be a tougher rebounder; he had only two double-figure rebounding outputs in 37 games compared to 13 games with four or fewer boards.

OTHERS TO WATCH

KOSTAS ANTETOKOUNMPO: The long 6-10 forward from Dayton aims to join his All-Star brother Giannis in the NBA, though hes a project who needs time to develop and get stronger.

KEITA BATES-DIOP: The Ohio State junior with a 7-3 wingspan made himself a possible first-rounder with a big season that included being named Big Ten player of the year.

JUSTIN JACKSON: Marylands 6-7 sophomore could potentially play at small forward or as an undersized power forward with a 7-3 wingspan, though the likely second-rounder missed most of last season with a shoulder injury.

MOE WAGNER: The 6-11 junior helped Michigan reach the NCAA championship game with his inside-out versatility . Hes a likely second-round prospect.

The Indiana Pacers saw Aaron Holiday as a perfect fit even before Thursday nights NBA Draft. They liked his scoring potential and his commitment to defense. They were impressed by his basketball wits and his familys athletic successes. And Youth Royce Freeman Jersey , they figured, he could make a smooth transition from college to the pros by blending into the Pacers locker room culture.

So when they finally got a chance to make an offseason move, the decision-makers didnt hesitate to take a potential point guard of the future.

.tpClipInfo > * { display: none !important; } .tpPlayer { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseList > * { display: none !important; } .tpReleaseModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpNavigation > * { display: none !important; } .tpSearch > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryModel > * { display: none !important; } .tpHeader > * { display: none !important; } .tpCategoryList > * { display: none !important; } Hes a tough guy, he prides himself on playing on the defensive end of the floor and he comes from a successful basketball family, coach Nate McMillan said after adding Holiday with the No. 23 overall pick. He was the guy we had at the top of our board.

The only problem was McMillan and president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard never got to see the 6-foot-1, 185-pound UCLA star up close in Indy.

McMillan said he was didnt know why Holiday didnt make it to Indianapolis for a pre-draft workout, and neither Holiday nor Pritchard provided an explanation either.

But Pacers scouts met with Holiday at the draft combine and did enough homework to know passing on Holiday so late in the draft probably would have been a mistake for a team needing more scoring help now and a potential void if Indianas top two point guards become free agents next summer.

The 21-year-old Holiday brings a solid resume to a team hes already has some familiarity with.

Indianas two draft picks last year Jaleel Scott Jersey Ravens , T.J. Leaf and Ike Anigbogu, also played at UCLA. So did starting point guard Darren Collison, a college teammate of Jrue Holiday, one of Aaron Holidays two older brothers who currently play in the NBA. Collison, who turns 32 in August, can become a free agent next summer.

We look at Darren (Collison) and Holiday and see a lot of similarities, Pritchard said. We see speed. We see elite shooting and we were shocked he (Holiday) was there.

Holiday averaged 20.3 points Youth James Daniels Jersey , 5.8 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 42.2 percent on 3-pointers last season, becoming the first Bruins player to lead the Pac-12 in scoring since former Pacers star Reggie Miller in 1985-86. Holiday was named first-team all-conference and was chosen to the Pac-12s all-defensive team.

What really sold the Pacers on him, though, was how they believed he would mesh in a locker room brimming with confidence and hope after last years surprise season.

Most analysts thought the Pacers would be a lottery team after trading All-Star Paul George to Oklahoma City for shooting guard Victor Oladipo and backup forward Domantas Sabonis in July.

Instead, Oladipo made his first All-Star appearance, led Indiana to 48 wins and was named one of three finalists for the NBAs Most Improved Player award. The Pacers even pushed eventual Eastern Conference champion Cleveland to a seventh game in the playoffs.

Sabonis also emerged as a valuable piece off the bench in his second NBA season, and they expect 22-year-old center Myles Turner to improve heading into next season.

Somebody whos going to come in and play hard Youth John Kelly Jersey , a playmaker who shoots the ball and a hard worker, Holiday said, describing what the Pacers are getting.

Indiana also took 6-9, 212-pound forward Alize Johnson, who averaged a double-double in both seasons he played at Missouri State, at No. 50 overall. The 22-year-old Johnson averaged 15.0 points last season and finished fifth nationally in rebounds (11.6) and eighth nationally in double-doubles (20) after starting his prep career as a 5-9 point guard.

Holiday could be another critical piece for a team facing a potentially intriguing offseason.

Pritchard confirmed backup point guard Cory Joseph already has decided to return to Indy next season. The Pacers also could exercise team options on guards Lance Stephenson and Joe Young. Starting forward Thaddeus Young, meanwhile Youth Detroit Lions Hats , continues to wrestle with a decision to stay with the Pacers for $13.7 million or test free agency. Pritchard wants him back.

Indiana also could have as much as $30 million to play with in free agency and enough flexibility to invest in the trade market. Pritchard said they considered offers during the draft and acknowledged the team was hunting one unidentified player before deciding the cost would be too prohibitive.

Besides, Pritchard considers doesnt want to do anything to break up the team chemistry and he believes Holidays presence will work just fine in that role.

I think hes confident but my gut feeling is that he knows he doesnt know everything yet, Pritchard said when asked why hed fit in. We love when a guy says, `I want to be great and Ill do whatever it takes to be great.

Two young starters searching for consistency will try to find it Wednesday night in the rubber game of a three-game series between the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Padres left-hander Eric Lauer (2-4 Justin Bethel Jersey Falcons , 6.64 ERA) is undergoing on-the-job training with mostly painful results, while Cardinals right-hander Luke Weaver (3-5, 4.35) has won once in his last 10 starts, struggling to put hitters away and frequently running up high pitch counts.

The last start for each summarized their seasons. Lauer suffered a 4-0 loss Friday night in Miami, while Weaver was no-decisioned in a 7-6, 10-inning victory that same evening in Cincinnati as each failed to command the strike zone.

Lauer DJ Moore Jersey Panthers , who is in the majors because Bryan Mitchell (0-3, 7.08) was horribly ineffective, has allowed a whopping 81 baserunners (57 hits, 24 walks) over 39 1/3 innings in nine starts.

Seven of those walks occurred in Miami, where Lauer threw 111 pitches and gave up three runs in a five-inning stint. Lauer at least managed to minimize damage, escaping a bases-loaded spot in the fifth without ceding extra runs.

It was a good learning experience for me Youth D.J. Fluker Jersey , Lauer said to MLB.com. And a good mental sign for me that (manager Andy Green) was comfortable leaving me in in those situations and letting me get that chance to grow. Being able to work through those tough situations is something I need to do.

Lauer was shelled in a 9-5 loss to St. Louis at Petco Park on May 11, allowing four homers and six runs over 2 1/3 innings before getting hooked.

Weaver, who pitched well over the last two months of the 2017 season, came out of the gate strong in 2018 with two wins in his first three starts. But Weaver has lasted seven innings just two times in his last 10 outings, taxing a bullpen that hasnt exactly been a model of consistency.

The Reds touched Weaver for seven hits, five walks and four runs in five-plus innings on Friday Authentic Customized Texans Jerseys , but only a blown save by Bud Norris in the ninth prevented Weaver from notching a win.

Today was a tough one with the weather conditions and the rain, with it getting a little muddy, Weaver said to MLB.com. It is one of those where you have to put your stuff down and grind through it and make some good pitches.

Weaver has stumped San Diego (32-37) in both career outings, winning both and not allowing a run over 12 innings.

The Padres evened this series Tuesday night as their bullpen checked the Cardinals (36-29) on five hits in a 4-2 victory. Matt Strahm and submarining right-hander Adam Cimber combined to retire the first 15 St. Louis hitters.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said the difference between Cimber and Strahm, a left-hander who touched 94 mph with his fastball, was difficult for his hitters.

That was unique stuff from the right side Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey , Matheny said of Cimber. Most of the time, hes using the (arm) angle to hit the top of the zone. Its certainly like an upshoot.

Quin Snyder walked into his news conference after Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals with a stoic look Youth Shaquem Griffin Jersey , slowly rubbing his forehead, barely if ever cracking anything that would resemble a smile.

And he was on the winning side.

This much is clear about the Utah Jazz: They are not surprising themselves by being in this position. A team that was written off by Vegas oddsmakers and alleged experts coming into the season after losing Gordon Hayward in free agency won 48 games, ousted reigning MVP Russell Westbrook and Oklahoma City in the first round, and now have the Houston Rockets in a bit of trouble.

The Jazz stole home-court from Houston with a win on Wednesday night, and now look to take a 2-1 lead when the series shifts to Salt Lake City for Game 3 on Friday night.

When guys have confidence in each other, it allows them, I think, the confidence individually to step up Youth Michael Gallup Jersey , Snyder said.

Confidence is not an issue for the Jazz.

Even on a night where Donovan Mitchell shot 6 for 21 and fellow rookie backcourt starter Royce ONeale shot 2 for 5, the Jazz won thanks largely to a great start and a great bench. Utahs reserves outscored Houstons 41-22 in Game 2 and that, combined with a 27-point night from Joe Ingles, was enough for the Jazz.

Theres a pair of Game 3s on the schedule Friday, both out West, and the other being Golden State going to New Orleans. The Warriors lead that matchup 2-0, the 11th time in Golden States last 14 series that theyve opened with a pair of victories.

No pressure for us, New Orleans star Anthony Davis said. We just go out there and play Cheap Brian O'Neill Jersey , have fun, enjoy the moment and embrace it. The rest will take care of itself. Were going to make shots here at home and its going to be a lot tougher for them.

Even down 2-0, the Pelicans insist that they can play freely.

Same goes for the Jazz.

Hardly anyone outside of Salt Lake City a few months ago probably expected the Jazz to be in the second round of these playoffs, or to have grabbed home-court away from Houston. Snyder never conceded anything, though, and the Jazz holdovers from the Hayward years say the franchise has improved even in what was supposed to be a transition year.

I feel like were a better team, Jazz center Rudy Gobert said.

A look at Fridays games:

WARRIORS AT PELICANS

Warriors lead 2-0. Game 3, 8 p.m. EDT Trent Murphy Jersey Bills , ESPN.

NEED TO KNOW: While Warriors star Stephen Curry is back from a five-week injury layoff and is expected to start Game 3, New Orleans looked far more competitive after Currys return in Game 2. New Orleans had won nine straight their last five regular season games and a first-round sweep of third-seeded Portland before a Game 1, 22-point drubbing. New Orleans regrouped for Game 2 and lost by just five points. Of course, we wanted to get one up there, but I think the thing that we took out of it was: Game 1, we got punched in the mouth and Game 2 we came back and responded, Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis said. We didnt win, but we showed a lot of great signs and Game 3 well be back at home.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Warriors forward Draymond Green and Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo. Both veteran players have demonstrated a proclivity toward engaging in mind games and were nose-to-nose at one point in Game 2. Rondo also grabbed the ball and wiped his sweat on it before one Greens free throws (which Green made anyway).

INJURY UPDATE: Warriors wing player Patrick McCaw hasnt played since the end of March because of a lumbar spine bruise. It remains unclear when hell be ready. Curry has been back for only one game from his sprained left knee. After scoring 28 points in 27 minutes off the bench on Tuesday night Ryan Jensen Jersey Elite , he appears healthy and ready for an expanded role.

PRESSURE IS ON: The Pelicans even if Davis denies his team is worried about the prospect of a virtually insurmountable 3-0 series deficit to the defending champs.

ROCKETS AT JAZZ

Series tied 1-1. Game 3, 10:30 p.m. EDT, ESPN.

NEED TO KNOW: Adversity, meet the Rockets. A team that had winning streaks of 11, 14 and 17 games in the regular season has now ceded home-court advantage to the Jazz. Its not panic time for the NBAs No. 1 overall seed yet its only 1-1 but Houston must expect Mitchell to shoot better at home in Game 3 than he did on the Rockets home floor in Game 2.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Jazz F Joe Ingles. He has been superb in these playoffs, with three 20-point games already (as compared to having only two in the final two months of the regular season). The Aussie is playing with enormous confidence right now.

INJURY UPDATE: Jazz PG Ricky Rubio (hamstring) remains out.

PRESSURE IS ON: Utah. The Jazz know all theyve done is win one game. Giving the series lead back to Houston in Game 3 would make the challenge of knocking off the Rockets incredibly daunting.

Ettore Messina was screaming at the Spurs Kemoko Turay Jersey Colts , and Manu Ginobili loved it. Before Gregg Popovich, Ginobili played in Italy for Messina, and on Sunday he delivered a throwback performance for his old coach to save the Spurs season.

Experiencing a flashback to his days playing for Messina in the Euroleague in his early 20s, the 40-year-old Ginobili scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter to help San Antonio beat the Golden State Warriors 103-90. The Spurs avoided a series sweep as Popovich missed his second straight game following the death of his wife, Erin, on Wednesday.

In his 16th season in the NBA and perhaps the final home game of his career, Ginobili rebounded from a scoreless effort in Game 3 to help Messina capture his first playoff victory as a coach, albeit an unofficial one.

For moments when he talks to the rest of the team, or when he gets upset and he yells at us Authentic Customized Cowboys Jerseys , a lot of flashbacks, Ginobili said, chuckling. Hes very strict and he wants the team to play his way, so whenever we stopped executing the way we should have, the old himself comes back. It was good to see him coaching on this stage. Good memories.

Ginobili played for Messina while both were with Virtus Bologna in 2000-02.

Kevin Durant had 34 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who can wrap up the series in Game 5 at home Tuesday.

You have got to give them a lot of credit, Golden State forward Draymond Green said. They came out and they probably played with more intensity this game than they did the entire series.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs, but they were willed to the finish by Ginobili, who has said he will decide in the offseason if he will return for a 17th season.

Ginobili was 3 for 4 in the final quarter Youth Phillip Gaines Jersey , including making both of his 3-point attempts, and did not have a turnover in 6 1/2 minutes.

I am so happy for him, Messina said. Im so happy. I think he deserves everything that is happening to him in his life and his career.

Golden State outscored San Antonio 29-21 in the third quarter and went on a 13-5 run beginning two minutes into the fourth quarter to pull within 88-86 with 6 minutes remaining after trailing by as many as 17.

Aldridge banked in a 3-pointer with 4:22 remaining to stop the Warriors run.

It was kind of frustrating, Green said. We played great defense and he throws something up like that.

Ginobili then took over with a pair of 3-pointers in the final minutes.

I smiled when he made that corner 3 right in front of us at the end of the game, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. It was just so typical Manu. Forty years old and 16 points and hits the clinching 3. Hes Manu. Thats what he does.

The Spurs were 15 for 28 on 3-pointers on Sunday after shooting just 26 percent in the opening three games. The Warriors were 7 for 28.

It was a do-or-die game, make it happen or go home, and I think every guy played with that mentality, that focus, and we ended up getting it done tonight Mike White Jersey Cowboys , Aldridge said.

Aside from Durant, only Klay Thompson (12) and Shaun Livingston (10) scored in double figures for the Warriors.

Rudy Gay scored 14 points for San Antonio, Dejounte Murray had 12 and Kyle Anderson added 10.

TIP-INS

Warriors: Livingston played despite spraining his left ankle late in the Warriors Game 3 victory. Livingston played 21 minutes. Golden State PG Stephen Curry remained seated behind the teams bench as he continues to rehabilitate a sprained left knee. Curry is expected to be available for the second round. Andre Iguodala picked up his fourth foul with 7:56 remaining in the third quarter, but picked up just one more foul for the remainder of the game.

Spurs: Ginobili played in his 217th playoff game, breaking a tie with Shaquille ONeal for sixth in league history. Ginobili also passed Reggie Miller for third in career 3-pointers in playoff history. Ray Allen holds the record with 385 3-pointers, followed by LeBron James (337), Ginobili (321) and Miller (320). Murray was 3 for 3 on 3-pointers in the first half, the most 3s made in the playoffs without a miss by a Spurs player since Steve Kerr (2003) and Patty Mills (2014) were 4 for 4 in a half.

WERE OK

Durant was asked if the Warriors were downhearted following the loss because their locker room was so quiet following their first loss in the series.

We were good, Durant said. I guess everybody was just quiet in the locker room while you were in there Browns Authentic Jerseys , getting ready, putting on their clothes, getting ready to leave. What, you want us to be in there throwing champagne around?

OUCH

Ginobili took a knee to the thigh in the fourth quarter, but remained in the game after dropping to the court in pain.

Quad contusion, one of hundreds all career long, Ginobili said. It hurts at the time, maybe tomorrow its going to hurt a little bit. Well see how bad or not bad it is for the next game.
