Kings’ Buddy Hield brings March magic to NBA at expense of Clippers
Buddy Hield must have been inspired by all the March madness in the air.
The Kings guard scored 11 points in the last five Cheap Bruins Jerseys minutes of Sunday’s 98-97 win over the Clippers in Los Angeles. On this date last year, Hield scored 37 points to lead Oklahoma to the Final Four.
Hield scored just 15 points with seven rebounds in the game. Sacramento fans won’t mind, though, because he saved his best and most heroic form for last.
The goggles didn’t last long, though. James ditched them with 3:37 remaining in the first quarter after missing a 3-pointer. He played just fine after that, finishing with 24 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists. In the end, though, the Cavs didn’t have an answer for John Wall (37 points, 11 assists) and Bradley Beal (27 points, six assists) as the Wizards handed the Cavs a 127-115 defeat.
Washington’s victory moved the Celtics within a half-game of the Cavaliers for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards are 2 1/2 games Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys behind. After looking virtually unbeatable earlier in the season, the Cavs are just 7-9 in their last 16 games.
Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is 37, and he almost shot his age Saturday, coming off the bench to score a season-high 28 points to spark the Clippers’ 108-95 win over the Jazz.
Ollie has been talked about as a potential NBA coach for a few years now — he was mentioned for the Thunder job, as well as the Lakers job last year — but he’s not done himself many favors after a rough season (16-17) with the Huskies, which included season-opening losses to Wagner and Northeastern.
Still, there are reasons Ollie managed to play in the NBA until he was 37 despite a career scoring average of 3.8 points: He is smart, disciplined and a good influence on young players. He’s also a very good Xs and Os coach, so despite the poor showing this year, Ollie will continue to attract attention from the league.
