Harrison Barnes made two huge defensive mistakes in the final minute. He redeemed himself and the Golden State Warriors with one big shot.
The Sacramento Kings announced they had signed Sim Bhullar to a 10-day contract on Thursday, making the 7ft-5in center the first player of Indian descent to join an NBA roster.
Jackson and Steve Mills, the team’s general manager, fielded prepared questions from Al Trautwig and Alan Hahn of the MSG Network before an invitation-only crowd of roughly 300.
Sim Bhullar, 22, has become the first player of Indian descent in the N.B.A.
Dwayne Wade nearly did the splits. For a moment, it appeared Miami’s season was torn apart.
Wade sustained a knee injury in the first half, and the Miami Heat’s playoff chances took another blow with a 114-88 road loss to Cleveland.
Dwayne Wade’s left knee is only sore, nothing seriously damaged.
James Harden scored 24 points, former Dallas guard Jason Terry hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer and the Houston Rockets beat the Mavericks 108-101 Thursday night.
Phil Jackson already has summed up this disastrous Knicks season by calling it “an experiment that’s fallen flat on its face.”
