This is one thing that happens every year. My neck and back go out. If you saw me last year, I had tape across. I had [kinesio] tape on my back for 10-15 games last year. It happens every year. So I’m glad it’s happening now.”
Ramona Shelburne: Andre Iguodala was seen limping at end of the first half. Warriors say it’s a contusion on his right leg, not the left one he’s been injured with. He’ll play in the second half.

The 6-foot-7 swingman plans to search for a remedy in the coming days, sources said, and his status for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers is unknown. Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, has missed the past four games after bumping knees with Houston Rockets All-Star James Harden in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

Tim Bontemps: Steve Kerr says he will call Andre Iguodala “doubtful” for Game 7, but says he’s working around the clock to try to play in Game 7. Doesn’t seem likely that he will, though.

Michael Lee: Steve Kerr isn't sure Andre Iguodala will be available for Game 6. "He’s one of our keys & we’ve missed him the last two games. But we can’t count on it. Injuries happen & we’ve just got to play with whoever is out there. So we’re hoping he’s back, we’ll see what happens.”

Shams Charania: Sources: X-ray on Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala's left leg contusion returned clean. Iguodala is day-to-day, listed as doubtful ahead of Game 4 against Houston.
Ramona Shelburne: From what I understand, the bruise on Iguodala's knee is actually slightly below his kneecap. One Warriors source I spoke to said there was optimism he'd be upgraded. But obviously they didn't expect it to get worse overnight so best not to guess until X-rays come back.

Gerald Bourguet: Chris Paul on this possibly being his best shot at a title: “They said that last year. They probably said it back in ’08. Every time you lose, they’re gonna say it’s your best chance…but we’ll be back next year. I ain’t retiring tomorrow, thank God.”
Marc J. Spears: Suns point guard Chris Paul limped out of the arena with a very slow walk. @andscape learned that Paul had a left quad injury. When asked about his quad injury, Paul declined comment.
Gerald Bourguet: “His contract situation is between him and the front office. I care about him as a brother. Just making sure his mental is right…whatever happens, happens. Kind of hard to look so far in the future.” – Devin Booker on Deandre Ayton’s contract situation
“Giannis is the best player in the world. You can see why a lot of people say that,” Celtics guard Jaylen Brown said. “He’s just relentless in his approach. He is aggressive all the time. He’s not going to be denied. And that was tough for us in the series.” Antetokounmpo finished the semifinals with back-to-back 20-point, 20-rebound games. He had 44 points and 20 rebounds in Game 6, and 25 points and 20 rebounds with 9 assists in Game 7. And they were both losses. Antetokounmpo joined Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to lose consecutive postseason games with a 20-20, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.
Antetokounmpo started off hot on Sunday, going 6-for-10 in the first half for 17 points before he appeared to get fatigued while struggling down the stretch. He shot just 4 of 16 in the second half with 8 points as the Celtics pulled away after halftime. “Legs heavy. Body heavy. Mind heavy. Everything was heavy,” Antetokounmpo said with a smile after the game. “I was just trying to be aggressive. At the end of the day, it’s Game 7 and I’m not going to hold the ball and not look at the rim, I’d rather miss a bunch of shots and keep playing and keep coming and keep being aggressive. Keep looking for my teammates and keep making the right plays then go in passive mode. I can live with that.”
