LeBron becomes all-time leader in playoff wins
"If you remember back to Sunday, Game two of the Western Conference finals. Lakers gave up 41 points in the third quarter before they were able to clamp down defensively, allowing the Rockets to score just 17 in that fourth quarter. Get on Tuesday. It would be a strong fourth quarter. That proves to be the difference for Ella. LeBron James wind up having a huge first half 29 points, but the Lakers were actually trailing at the break. L. A would hold the Rockets to just 18 points in the third. Turning things up defensively, one of the best defensive teams all year that turned it up the Rockets to 22% shooting in the second half. There's another turnover. Anthony Davis, with the steal handed back to Gordon, Front left drives past LeBron layup blocked by James from behind LeBron James with a great block. Gordon thought he was buying me ran down from the back. Another block for James on a runner by harden LeBron James, with two monster blocks 54 Covington to Rivers Wing left us with a rim up on underway Blood by James and the stick that won't count. It comes after the red light was lit. And LeBron with three monster blocks in the corner. We're tied going before the difference in this one. It was a 64 point first half With rockets. Scored 33 points in the first quarter. 31 in the second But just 38 points total. In the second half of the Lakers. Clamping down on defense would also Their foot on the accelerator on offense. Morris swinging Rondo opened three Ling right, Got another one playoff. Rondo is here tonight in Game three. Four point lead for the Los Angeles Lakers. That's 12 points. Ferrando as a timeout is called by Mike D'Antoni governs and threw it away. Trying to find a friend on the left sideline. Rondo working right side before with Davis. Hi, Lobb. Davis caught way right off the jab. Step shoots for two and dropped it in 26 15 for Anthony Davis early, but it's a dagger a little bag. Now, with a minute to play Rondo around the angle Street left side of the room past the diving Kuzma catches and lays it in over the front iron and the Rockets have a look to him that they know they're probably done with under a minute to play, and the short answer would be Yes, The rockets were done at that point. The game was here on ESPN radio Lakers would close it out when it by 10 1 12 102 Lakers taking a 21 Siri's lead Lakers out of 21 to 8. Run. To start the fourth quarter after as we heard, the game was tied heading to the fourth LeBron James 162nd career playoff victory. That's the most all time he spoke with TNT, do what it takes to win both the defense and I know I say that a lot, but it was just the truth. My teammates looks for me to do a little bit of everything, and tonight was another opportunity for me to help and I was happy. I was able to come through for us tonight. LeBron at another milestone to your resume, passing Derek Fisher becoming the NBA's all time leader in a playoff wins. I know you have said time and time again, you'll reflect on those milestones later. To play at the level you're playing at and achieve that milestone in your 17. What does that say about what we're trying to accomplish? It says that I played with a lot of great teams says that I played a lot of great teammates made some great coaches in Cleveland in Miami and now here in Los Angeles, you don't get those wins without teammates so on the coaching staff prepares and do all the preparation Behind the scenes video coordinators. The guys will help rebound the basketballs force assistant coaches that trainers the athletic staff on its own. So it doesn't happen without the support of castes. And it's why I'm able to stay here with this achievement. But it's all about the three organizations. I've been with calves, the heat and not the Lakers. Because without them, I wouldn't be in this position. Speaking of the way you're supporting cast played tonight. Defensively, particularly in that second half. What did you guys find that allowed you to lock into Rockets offense. We know in the first half going into halftime that we didn't play our best. Defensively. We allowed him to get into the lane. Without contest. We allowed him to hit some threes. What I'll contest are rotations was slow. So when we went to the locker room, we watch some film. And we had conversation right away on what we can do in the second half to get better and be better, and we was able to transfer it into the second round. Last thing I'll ask you about. I know Coach Vogel keeps on telling us That he was going to use the memory of Kobe Bryant to fuel this playoff run and continue to talk to the team about it. How have you channeled that to motivate you through this run through the postseason in this most unique environment? Then today, we just so we make him and his family proud, and that's all it's about anybody's ever step foot and put on the Lakers jersey we hoped would make them proud as well. From Kobe all the way down to everybody's ever played in Los Angeles have been a part of Los Angeles Lakers organization. That's what we're trying to do. It means the tradition here and it's our responsibility when loser draw toe hold out without most responsibility and utmost respect, and, you know, doctor Dr Buss will want as well. Loser draw. This one turned out to be a win for the Lakers by 10. They take a 21 Siri's lead, LeBron finishing with 36 points, 29 of which came in the first half. You heard him touch on the defensive adjustments that the Lakers made at halftime. As well. Then they came out and turned up the intensity on the defensive end Lakers finishing with six blocks Houston had one came from Russell Westbrook late in the game,

Mike D'Antoni's Agent Not 'Willing to Take' Rockets' Latest Contract Amid Rumors
"In other NBA news contract tax reportedly back on between the rockets head coach Mike, Dan, Tony has been Tim McMahon reports of these sides are nearing an agreement with new rockets team, owner Tillman for Tita agreed to eliminate the bio language, that was the primary reason that did Tokyo's agent end attacks may thirtieth, but they're back on, again, with more ESPN NBA front office insider, Bobby marks. Well, I think it's a little bit of learning of for a new owner until for teetering. And I think he's on this team for about two years here that you can't run a rock at the basketball team like you do your own business, and to structure, a coach's contract extension likely. It's a scene with Mike, the Antoni. I, I had never seen that before basically performance bonuses in its you start low and then you kind of build your way out there. So, I think I think probably the last couple of weeks was, you know, doubt Daryl more probably educating him on as far as the business of basketball, and how you probably can't go out, you know with your head coach and how to structure with your system coaches here. So it's like something that's going to get resolved here. I think it's going to be interesting. What they do with their system coaches because they let go of, you know, just as Delic and ROY Rogers, and, and what the length of an extension will be here. It's, it's hard for an assistant coach to come on board when he's basically on a on a two Yukio. Yes. They will have somebody to get, you know, at the top of the line assistant coaches. I think that's a little bit of a challenge there.

Mike D'Antoni contract extension: Coach ends talks with Rockets
"Gonna get to some very interesting reports out of Houston. Mike dantonio last, we heard they were working on a contract extension seemed like they were going to firm up a little deal where they had might Antoni as a head coach and the rockets for a few more years. Well, Mike dantonio has reportedly backed out of the negotiations and what they found really interesting is that he was being offered a performance based contract. Jalen? Why would Matt might Antoni back out and why would the rockets offer a performance base contract? And he's only got one more year on his contract. And also the other news is that the rockets have put up the entire roster available for trade. What is happening in Houston? Vesey's, too short trod to tell us it was all good. Just the winter we oh. Here's the deal. My then Tony cash proven to be a really good MBA coach. So many players have syndicate and put up big time numbers and achieve these, they probably would not have done if he was not their head coach when he had him, I'm thinking back to Steve Nash and his back. Toback MVP's. And how really in the modern day he was the first guy that would do the pick and roll, and then pro go underneath the basket and dribble, it back out to the other side. And then you had a guy like Shawn Marion who played a lot of small forward, and then my dad, Tony or to the four. And then you had a Marsh thought Yvonne at the five, and then it was seven seconds or less. That was his style of play. We've seen James harden. Excel go from really being shooting guard to not a primary ball handler. The most unique office of weapon that the game has seen, because he'll lead the Lee at different points of his career in three pointers me free throws me. Me. And so why has that now translated into championship productivity? So now than organization, you gotta sit back and say, Chris Paul has a big contract that we may or may not be able to you may or may not be able to move clinic. Pella is a young player that has shown promise, but he's come up small in a playoff, the last couple of years talkers asset I wanna keep him on my team. I love what he brings the nasty. Erik Gordon not down shooter. I could trust what he's going to bring, but we not meeting our goal brought all these guys in to continue with the Golden State Warriors. That's what a performance based part comes in. I'm seeing all of these individual accolades and all of these regular season wins. But when it matters the most we're not really able to diversify, what we do in order to get over the hump, and especially disappoint. Eating the way they lost it to go State Warriors without Kevin Durant. So you bring in my dad, Tony said, you got a long track record, and we believe in you as a coach.
"mike dantoni" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Key members of his staff were let go by management and listen Houston still watch Mike the Tony their coach and talking to their organization today. They still hope that they'll have a good season and they'll be a pathway to doing a new deal berate now. He's a lame duck coach heading into next season rocket. So we have a lame duck coach heading in the next again, it was his flex. They were in negotiations. He obviously didn't like something that was going on. And he basically told him that we'll just go into next year. See what happens. Yeah. So this is interesting. There have been conversations around performance based extension with dantonio camp which, obviously, he took some fence to as guy who in three years on the job here has four Western Conference. Series victories. A- conference finals appearance in an NBA coach of the year. Why would you not have an issue with the performance based incentive, though? When you think about the fact that we just heard the other day, they may try and blow the whole roster up spare James harden to get better. That could work that could not work. Do you want your income tied to not knowing what the GM's gonna do when he blows everything trades? All your assets out, and you have no idea what's going to be playing. No -solutely not. I think the more interesting part here because you said it we all knowledge, shifting out. He's a lame duck coach. Don't tell that to tell them in for Tita the owner who's the owner of the rockets who said, I think you just did me a favor. He goes, I'm gonna tell you what I think, from an owner's perspective. I don't know what lame duck needs because he's under contract. Gimme a break with that. We all know what lean if it walks like a lame duck at talks lame duck. And it's got one year left and a contract extension. It's a lame duck. Head coach. You can't tell me that, that's the right way, either in the press to be communicating if this is a contentious, negotiation. I mean, there's some sponge now. Basically. Owner to stand up. We're gonna get this worked out. Mike's going to be here forever. We love Mike, Mike loves us. But Tillman has been fiery coming off the final unacceptable, and he said, quote, I think his agent didn't favor. Okay. Because if for some reason, we had a horrible year, and we thought we needed to make a coaching change. We just got through paying off one, one of the other head coaches. I believe, so I hope we wanna championship and Mike comes to put the gun to my head and basically says, give me more money, basically saying, yeah, I hope next year goes, well, and we have to pay Mike, because it went so well, but if not, we just got done paying somebody else to not coach for us. Why get ourselves in that, which, again is counter to most normal civil negotiations? Exactly. And there are no negotiations right now. So here's the question I have for both of you on everything. We're hearing with Daryl Morey trying to figure out any way. He can't change the lineup to make them more of a competitor with the Golden State Warriors to Mike dantonio, basically saying, hey, just go to this happens. Do we? Feel it's more likely that the rockets will be better next year or take a massive step backwards. That sort of that. That's that's it's a zero sum game. Right. They don't wanna stay the same. I unfortunately I don't know that they're gonna choice right now. And this comes back to Chris Paul's contract is basically you can't get out of it. So the only way Houston gets out of Chris Paul's contract is if whatever they trade for they include future assets. So they're gonna have to leverage their future to get better right now. And they're probably gonna have to leverage it in a big way with a lot of draft picks with a lot of capital that they can throw into it. I'm not sure how that makes them better in the next five years. So if you're Mike Antoni, or if you're the rockets, you might just be stuck where you are, which is why at this point, you cut off negotiations and say, let's go where this thing goes, and we'll figure it out next year. But if you're stuck world because I'm with you. If you're bringing back, Mike dantonio, and you're bringing back James harden, your shuffling deckchairs on the Titanic. Identity is secured couple seasons ago before Chris Paul got there. We went through this whole thing where they assembled the perfect team around James harden. The point God and Mike Dantone. Often space shooters. Then he ran out of gas. You added. Chris Paul you get to the Western Conference finals, and Chris Paul gets hurt. And you had that Golden State team on the road, and it just didn't work out. And this year, yet you spit the bit when you had a chance. Katie went out, correct. I'm sure that's why Tillman for Titas as upset as anything we talk about Golden State not over. Correcting. From game one to game to this feels like a spot where you're going to over correct. 'cause you feel like you've got to do something instead of letting nature, take its course and Golden State, and then you're going to end up without dantonio your head coach and James harden, who's the much bigger part of their identity their than anything else. But as an organization, you've gotta decide at some point, do you want to be Oklahoma City and be okay with just being good and relevant. Or do you want to be Toronto and get rid of good and relevant to do whatever it takes to even if it's for one year to try and become a championship all that would include trying to move the biggest contract, which is going to be the biggest issue there and his point to a junior said, I think while it may be so frustrating for the rockets right now patients might be the best way to do this because you just. We don't know what's going to happen to Golden State. They could have a much better chance of to next year by not doing anything and seeing what happens with the warrior. But if we press the rewind button, that was the same exact conversation. We had one year ago right now about the raptors. Hey, LeBron may not be in the east. So maybe you do nothing and you'll get to the finals. Anyway, they leverage. They went all in the got co we don't know how that will turn out, but we certainly feel better about Toronto. Here's where I'm going to differ is, if you it's oppertunistic costs. It's yeah. Do you have the chance to go out and get someone like because even if you move you're not gonna move Chris Paul's conscious? It's not gonna happen. So even if you move click cappella, and do all these other things could have room to bring a max, caliber guy, like quiet Leonard if you can get someone of Leonard's value, great, I doubt you're going to be able to. So this is not Toronto going out and making a markedly different changed. This is you go in there to the dance with guy that brought you there and James harden. And hoping that a couple of different cast members you over the hump? I agree. And while yes co I was a big part of what? The raptors able to do LeBron isn't in the east and that was also a big part of what Toronto was able to do. We can't can't avoid that one,.
