That cheering you hear is the parade cranking up in Lakerdom. Byron Scott, who is close to Magic Johnson, actually announced on ESPN, “I’m going to tell you something right now. LeBron (James) is coming to the Lakers along with Kawhi. We’re back in the Finals!” Reports dovetailing with that one swept the league: Kawhi, a Los Angeles guy who grew up in the Inland Empire, wants to come home. Kawhi, who has one year left on his contract, will force a trade to the Lakers.
Storyline: Kawhi Leonard to Lakers?
Middleton not only is averaging 26.3 points through three playoff games but also averaging 6.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists. He has put on a shooting clinic: the veteran swingman is shooting a lights-out 62 percent from the field and a smokin’ 63 percent on 3-pointers. “Khris has been amazing,’’ Bucks backup center Thon Maker said. “Defensively, he was working his butt off. And, offensively, hit shot was … automatic. Khris is showing what a two-way player he is.’’
Jeff Teague scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins pitched in 20 points with another four 3-pointers, helping the Timberwolves match the NBA’s best 3-point shooting team with 15 makes apiece from long range. Minnesota took 27; Houston launched 41. “I tell everybody all the time, as long as you’re in rhythm, no matter if somebody’s in front of you or not, it’s a good shot for you because we think that you can make that,” Butler said after the Wolves shot 50 percent overall from the floor.
