Much like when he’s on the court and has a wide-open look at the basket, New Orleans guard Jordan Crawford didn’t hesitate. After receiving a message from Anthony Davis regarding a multi-day meeting of Pelicans players last month in Lexington, Ky., Crawford immediately cleared his schedule, making sure he’d be there. “He kind of just said it straightforward,” Crawford related of the four-time All-Star’s plan to host a voluntary team gathering on the University of Kentucky campus. “But it came across like you could tell that we needed to be there, like it was something he wanted to get done. It was good that he did that, because even though he’s younger than a lot of players here, he’s the leader. He’s got to take on that role.”

Players call out Zaza Pachulia

While battling for an rebound with Golden State’s Nick Young, Westbrook made contact with Young and fell to the floor. Pachulia, who was near the play but not particularly involved, crumpled to the floor after Westbrook was down and fell on the Thunder star’s legs. After the game, Westbrook challenged reporters who asked if he felt the fall was intentional. “Obviously it was intentional. Don’t ask me ‘was it intentional?’ Nobody touched him, he fell over my leg, tried to hurt me… but hey, that’s how it goes.”
