BDL’s 2016-17 NBA Playoff Previews: San Antonio Spurs vs. Houston Rockets

• San Antonio: It wasn’t pretty, and had First Team All-Defensive wing Tony Allen been available for the Memphis Grizzlies, it might’ve been uglier, but the Spurs survived the Grindhouse to escape their first-round series in six games, thanks in large part to Kawhi Leonard transforming into peak Kobe Bryant. Leonard thrice broke his own playoff scoring high, averaging 31.2 points on an otherworldly 71.5 percent true shooting for the series, to go along with six rebounds, 3.8 assists and a pair of steals per game. Gregg Popovich might be biased, but he called Leonard “the best player in the league right now” after the series, and the Spurs coach doesn’t throw out such superlatives lightly.

Golden State Warriors and Charles Barkley react to ESPN layoffs

Mike Brown, the Golden State Warriors assistant coach, used the team’s press conference this week to address the layoffs that have reportedly affected 100 ESPN staff. The Warriors, preparing for the second round of the NBA playoffs against Utah Jazz or the LA Clippers amid uncertainty over the health of head coach Steve Kerr, talked about Ethan Sherwood Strauss, a Golden State reporter for ESPN who lost his job in the cuts this week. “Before we get started, I heard today that Ethan lost his job and a lot of people at ESPN obviously got laid off,” Brown said Tuesday evening. “This is obviously an exciting time for us, not only as an organization but as a city.

NBA: Rockets owner fined $100K for confronting official during playoff game

Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander has been fined $100,000 by the NBA for leaving his courtside seat to confront an official during Tuesday’s game-five win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Apparently upset over a no-call, Alexander took it upon himself to complain to referee Bill Kennedy in the final seconds of the first quarter. Kennedy was watching the court while play was going on when Alexander approached from behind and gave the official an earful for several seconds before walking away.

On the final possession of the first quarter of Tuesday night’s Game 5 between the Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder, Alexander left his courtside seat and walked down the sideline toward referee Bill Kennedy.
