National Basketball Association wrap: Kevin Durant leads Warriors win; Rockets' defense dominates again

Former Warrior Ian Clark followed up his revenge Game 3 by missing all seven of his 3-point attempts in Game 4.

Warriors lead series 3-1. Most around the basketball world believe it's only a matter of time before they are added to the list of squads that have been vanquished by Golden State from the postseason. After a moderate blip in Game 2 when the Jazz were able to steal one, Houston came back and put in work in Games 3 and 4. They haven't really had to extend insane minutes for guys like James Harden and Chris Paul so far (neither's played more than 37 minutes in a game against the Jazz) though that's something of an issue from a fantasy perspective. "But you have to believe in yourself".

In the Pelicans' Game 3 win, Mirotic's value to the New Orleans' operation was readily apparent.

Golden State small forward Kevin Durant scored a game-high 38 points in Sunday's 118-92 blowout win at the Pelicans. "I had to tell him", Green said, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The numbers bear out Gentry's feel of his team. If they can pull that off, then the rest of the task will seem much more achievable.

ICO finds in favour of professor over Cambridge Analytica personal data fight
The case could set a precedent for the 240 million other USA voters looking to get their data back under British data laws. The ICO ruling says Mr Carroll sought his information from Cambridge Analytica in January of 2017.

"We didn't have the looks we normally have", he said.

"I know it sounds insane because you think everybody's going to bring the force every playoff game", says Kerr. To win, you need guys to make winning plays - to do the little things, sometimes exclusively in the service of one's teammates - and few players in this league make more winning plays than Iguodala. In fact, he reportedly stayed up until 4AM, replaying his team's lackluster performance in his mind. With the Warriors trailing 19-11 and struggling offensively, Curry checked in with 4:20 remaining in the first quarter and took 11 seconds to launch a 3-pointer.

Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday believes Kevin Durant was the difference-maker in the game, as he's nearly unstoppable on the offensive ends of the floor.

But it all starts with playing with that same type of belief once again. And whether he's still with the Pelicans remains to be seen; New Orleans wants him back, but he'll be a free agent this summer. It kind of reminded me of MJ (Michael Jordan), and I don't like to make that comparison, but he got to his spots and there was nothing you could do about it. That's for good reason: Green, who is likely a few inches shorter than his listed 6-foot-7, is a generational defensive talent, and when the forward slides up to play smallball center, his preternatural defensive instincts, award-winning versatility, and drive to win shine too bright to possibly ignore. But it is a close out game in Oracle, and game four showed just how ugly these games can get when Golden State goes on one of its stretches.

"We got a lot of stuff we can go to".
