Harrison Barnes on trade rumors: It was after my first year… When Dwight was thinking about leaving? It’s funny. Bogut texted me and asked me ‘Are we going to L.A.?’ We joked about that. Last summer was the Kevin Love thing. ‘Is he gonna come here?’ Me and David Lee were joking about the fact that we might have to buy a lot of winter clothes. (…) We’re in a great, great team and this is a place where people want to play now. You don’t really get too personal about it. That’s how the business goes.

Tim MacMahon: Mavs forward/center David Lee has a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his right heel. “Game 2 seems very unlikely, but with the break, hopefully we can continue to get it feeling better,” said Lee, who suffered the injury in the regular-season finale. “I’m able to actually put a little weight on it today for the first time. We’ll just see how it progresses over these next few days.”
Storyline: David Lee Injury
The Dubs storm back. They close to within a point inside of three minutes left after Curry gives up the ball against pressure to free himself, only to get it back off a down screen for a rhythm 3. But despite it all, the Warriors fall, with Mr. Kryptonite answering Curry’s shot with a lurching floater-and-1 and diving to the floor for a crucial loose ball a minute later to secure possession for Cleveland with under a minute remaining. The Warriors fashion themselves a little-things team, and these hustle plays by Dellavedova eat at them. But the strategic revelation lingers. They’ve rolled out their soft opening in the loss. “After Game 3, Steph and I did media postgame,” Lee says. “And I remember going up on the podium and one theme was that everyone sensed a real shift, that something … changed in that fourth quarter. And afterward, a lot of us were waiting to get to Game 4 shootaround.”
The 32-year-old is currently reviving his career with the Mavericks, serving as a prominent reserve player on a team with playoff aspirations. But when he was in the process of being bought out by the Celtics in February, Lee said there were conversations with the Knicks. He’ll be a free agent again in July. “I think I’ll have some good choices. And I look forward to playing three or four more years,” said Lee, who scored six points Wednesday. “I feel like right now my body feels as healthy as ever. And I think going down in weight has made me feel a lot better and a lot more active. I feel as active as I was early in my career.”
