Brandon Bass: Things ‘didn’t go as planned’ with Clippers

Basketball Insiders

It’s been a difficult two years for the 6-foot-8-inch, 250-pound [Brandon] Bass since the Celtics chose to sign Amir Johnson and allow Bass to leave via free agency. He played the 2015-16 season with a putrid Lakers team, the career small/power forward playing backup center in many stretches.

Bass thought he would have a more pivotal role with the Clippers, backing up Blake Griffin for his former Celtics coach, Doc Rivers. But Bass mostly sat the bench. At 32, Bass said he still has a lot of basketball left. And over 12 seasons he’s played only 758 games. By comparison, 32-year-old LeBron James has played 1,061 regular-season games.

“With the Clippers things didn’t go as planned, for whatever reason,” Bass said. “Every time I stepped on the floor my production level was at an all-time high. So my whole thing, I hope people make sure they judge what I did in my time more than anything else because I can’t control the politics of basketball all the time. I’m better than I was when I was in Boston, it’s just all about the perception of things.”

Steve Kerr: Warriors Operating like Andre Iguodala Out for Game 7

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala sat out Game 6 of the Western Conference finals over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night in Oakland, California, and his ability to suit up for Game 7 on Monday is in doubt, as well.

Speaking after the Warriors’ 115-86 win, coach Steve Kerr cast doubt on whether the veteran forward will play in the decisive Game 7 in Houston.

“We’re operating under the assumption that he will not play, but he is literally day-to-day,” Kerr said. “It’s a bone bruise, there’s not sort of a timetable, it’s more just up to the individual and how he’s feeling, and we don’t really know. So we’ll just keep taking it day by day and see what happens.”

Kevin Love will not play in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ decisive Game 7 on Sunday against the Boston Celtics, as the All-Star forward has been placed in the concussion protocol.

The Cavaliers announced that Love is experiencing concussion-like symptoms after his collision with the Celtics’ Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Friday’s game.

Just before the team’s announcement, confusion had reigned over Love’s status. Coach Tyronn Lue initially stated during a conference call that Love was in the concussion protocol. He then backtracked after further questioning to say that Love was still being evaluated and that he didn’t know about the protocol process or whether Love would go into it.
