How long until Ainge makes a move?


How long until Ainge makes a move?

Dan Shaughnessy joins Sports Tonight to give his opinion on what we should expect from Danny Ainge, and offers a bold move of his own.

But to start, is it possible that this is as good as the Celtics will be? Are they a .500 team?

"I think they're better than that," says Dan. "This is what they are right now. I thought it was going to be better out of the gate... I still can't believe they could ever lose to the Knicks but you start to wonder now."

The Celtics have lost five of their last seven and there doesn't seem to be much reason to believe that they will turn it around without a move of some kind.

Shaughnessy says there's still a bit of an identity crisis going on, and some areas that haven't come together as hoped.

"The defense isn't what they'd like," says Dan. "And the bench... Jeff Green... what is he? I'm still not sure what he is."

So what do the Celtics do about it?

Shaughnessy puts on his GM hat and offers this move: "I would get DeMarcus Cousins. I know he's a mental case, whatever you want to call it there. The talent is so great. I want to see an infusion of youth and talent here."

Not sure how happy a player would be to have his GM question his mental faculties but that's an issue for Shaughnessy the GM to sort out.

Warriors force Game 7 with 108-101 win over Thunder


Warriors force Game 7 with 108-101 win over Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Klay Thompson made a playoff-record 11 3-pointers and scored 41 points, and the defending champion Golden State Warriors forced a seventh game in the Western Conference finals with a 108-101 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

Stephen Curry bounced back from a slow start to finish with 29 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

The Warriors, who set the league's regular-season record with 73 wins, will host Game 7 on Monday. The winner will play Cleveland in the NBA Finals.

Oklahoma City dominated Games 3 and 4 at home, but the Warriors made 21 of 44 3-pointers on Saturday, while Oklahoma City was 3 of 23.

Kevin Durant scored 29 points and Russell Westbrook added 28 for the Thunder. But Durant made just 10 of 31 shots and Westbrook was 10 of 27.

Trying to become the 10th team to overcome a 3-1 deficit, the Warriors trailed much of the game and trailed by eight going to the fourth quarter.

Thompson kept them in it with four 3-pointers in just over seven minutes to start the period. Curry then hit two 3s, the second of which tied the game at 99 with 2:47 to play.

Thompson's 3 with 1:35 to play put the Warriors up 104-101.

The Thunder, who blew a number of fourth-quarter leads during the regular season, fell apart in the final minutes after Golden State had finally gone ahead for good.

Westbrook lost control of the ball, and after Thompson missed a 3, Westbrook turned the ball over again. Curry's layup with 14.3 seconds to play put the Warriors up by five, the Thunder turned it over again, and the Warriors were in the clear.

The Thunder led 23-20 after one quarter, then seized momentum early in the second. Steven Adams' powerful one-handed dunk on Draymond Green drew a roar from the crowd and gave Oklahoma City a 37-28 lead. Green, who had hit Adams in the groin area twice during the series, was a constant target for the vocal Thunder fans.

Thompson opened the second half with back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Warriors a 54-53 edge, but the Thunder closed the quarter strong and led 83-75 heading into the fourth.
