The Golden State Warriors crushed the New York Knicks 121-85 in the kind of game where the winning team layers on exclamation points until a guy takes and makes his first career 3-pointer (credit to James Michael McAdoo). It was a reminder of what the Warriors are and what the Knicks are not. It was also a showcase of the game’s evolution where a team of today was pitted against a team still tethered to the past.

Sources: Clippers, Tyronn Lue Agree to Deal
Ty Lue has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Clippers and Lue’s representative in the contract talks, Andy Miller, completed negotiations on a deal Thursday afternoon, sources said.
The Clippers’ search landed on Lue based upon a confidence that his championship pedigree and playoff successes as a head coach in Cleveland, as well as his strong ability to communicate with players, will resonate within a franchise that underachieved in the 2019-2020 season.
