Management recognized the commentary was vile, and even though it likely wasn't his intention to be as much, they spoke to the announcer to express their displeasure with him using the term. Matt Pinto, the team's radio voice, will fill in for Davis on the broadcast when the Thunder host the Utah Jazz in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series Sunday night, according to multiplemedia outlets. George led the team with 36 points on 13-20 shooting on a night he had something to prove after Indiana's win over Cleveland earlier in the day.
His eight three-pointers set a Thunder franchise record. George scored 26 points on 9-of-10 shooting, including 5 of 5 on 3-pointers in the first half to help Oklahoma City score a season-high 77 points in the first half. After Grant's two assists, he twice added his patented acrobatic layups, against the Utah's Stifle Tower, 7-foot-1 Rudy Gobert. OKC struggled from the free-throw line in the regular season, ranking 29th in the National Basketball Association, however they went 20 for 23 from the line in game one. Including Alex Abrines who returned after missing the last two games in the concussion protocol. He's a capable 3-point shooter, having hit six of them against Memphis in December. Only the Houston Rockets have won more since January 24, with Utah going 30-8 since the big Frenchman came back into the lineup.
For Game 1, sportsbooks list OKC as a 3.5-point favorite. New Orleans in the 2012-13 season.
Former substitute teacher faces charges for organizing "fight clubs" in his classroom
Out of the four states recently or now undergoing teacher protests, only Arizona does not have state-determined teacher salaries. The Arizona Educators United coalition had called for 20% pay raises, but it wasn't satisfied after Ducey's announcement.
The biggest question for Utah will be whether rookie Donovan Mitchell can continue to lead them on the offensive end in a playoff setting.
Projected for 37.4 FanDuel points, George totaled 43.4 FD points at a cost of $7,900. He's a 40-percent shooter from 3-point range, and he exploited the Jazz's defense.
The Jazz bolted out of the gates to a 16-4 lead, before George began his three-point onslaught to bring the Thunder back into the game. When they needed someone to step up with the reserves and keep their momentum going, George was there.
Analysis of the US, France and Britain military action in Syria
I will say this: The United States has a lot to offer, with the greatest and most powerful economy in the history of the world. It is fair to surmise that Trump had no idea what was in the TPP and could not identify anything specifically wrong with it.
George's approach is what his teammates wanted to see.
Westbrook talked about how "P" being aggressive changes the game for the Thunder, and how his staying that way makes them a better team. "Our job is to find him and make it easy for him". The team has made the decision to do what they need to do.
George will have the hip evaluated Monday to determine the extent of the injury.
