Billy Donovan Rumors
“I feel like they got outcoached,” Morris said. “There wasn’t no different looks at Dame, wasn’t no different looks at C.J. (McCollum). (Lillard) came off, scored 34 points in a half and you don’t trap him. Like, what sense does that make? I just don’t get it. And I’m not a coach or anything like that, but I feel like they just didn’t utilize their bench enough. I feel like my brother went over there for no reason. He never got an opportunity to play.”
Ben Golliver: After Game 3 win over Blazers, Thunder coach Billy Donovan on Paul George dunking at buzzer rather than dribbling the ball out: “My feeling was [the Blazers] probably shot a shot … and Paul kind of went in and dunked it. Both teams played the game all the way out.”
Erik Horne: Billy Donovan on Paul George’s shoulder: “I think he’ll be fine, but when you don’t play for a while, it’s going to be a matter of him trying to find his rhythm.”
Erik Horne: Donovan on Westbrook’s floor game, moving the ball: “I thought at times it was contagious to our team. I didn’t really feel like we were struggling or it was grind for us. We didn’t capitalize on the break and certainly didn’t capitalize when we had opportunities to score.”
Malika Andrews: Billy Donovan said a decision on whether or not Paul George (shoulder) will play tonight against the Bucks will be made after warm ups. He said there is no expectation this injury would keep George out in the playoffs.
