Kerr: Worried flops will give Beverley whiplash

Steve Kerr said Patrick Beverley has mastered the art of popping his head back like he has been hit by Mike Tyson, and referees aren't helping matters. "I worry he's going to get whiplash on some of these flops," Kerr said.

Early jump: Rockets traveling Friday to Bay Area

The Rockets will travel to the Bay Area on Friday to give themselves the best chance to be prepared for a potential Game 1 vs. Warriors on Sunday.

Baxter Holmes ESPN Senior Writer 

An awkward exchange unfolded at Warriors practice Friday. Head coach Steve Kerr began addressing reporters near the court in the team's downtown Oakland practice facility, but Kerr quickly asked a Warriors PR official if the music thumping in the facility could be turned down so he could hear reporters' questions better and so reporters could hear his answers better. The Warriors PR official replied that the music was loud because forward Draymond Green, who was shooting on a nearby court, wanted it that way. (The Warriors PR official moved toward the volume switch and Green shouted to keep the music at the same level.) In the end, the music stayed at the same volume. A reporter then jokingly asked Kerr who was in charge. "Not me, obviously," he said. After the media session ended, Kerr told reporters, "Enjoy the music."

Clips' Williams: Warriors erred in 'looking ahead'

After the Clippers' Game 5 victory, Lou Williams called out the Warriors for keeping an eye on potential second-round opponent Houston, saying, "It's their mistake for looking ahead. So that's on them."

When asked about his performance after scoring a team-high 33 points off the bench Wednesday, Clippers guard Lou Williams credited focus and his teammates. Then, during the postgame press conference, Williams' teammate Patrick Beverley interjected. "Lou is one of the best players in the league," Beverley said. "I think you're being modest, though. I mean, he's a killer, man. I guard the best of them. I see him every day in practice, man. He's a real killer. He goes up with some of the best scorers in the NBA. I didn't mean to interrupt you, but I think he should be up there with some of the superstar players in this league because he's doing it day in and day out at 6'1" and a half."

Clippers high-scoring reserve guard Lou Williams is often asked why he doesn't start games, so he wanted to set the record straight after his team's 129-121 Game 5 win Wednesday over Golden State. "Nobody's ever offered me a different role," Williams said after scoring a team-high 33 points off the bench. "Like, let's clear that up. Like, everybody asks me, like, 'Why don't you start?' I'm not the coach. I think Doc [Rivers] is my eighth coach in my career. Nobody's offered me a starting job, so I've perfected the one that I have."

Baxter Holmes ESPN Senior Writer 

Warriors coach Steve Kerr gave a thoughtful response when asked whether he thought Damian Lillard's series-winning 3-pointer vs. OKC was a good shot: "It's a good shot for Damian, a good shot for [Stephen Curry]. The game is being redefined, I think, as we play it. The stuff I'm seeing this last year -- I didn't think I'd ever see people playing on [the] other side of James Harden and asking him to go to the rim. I've never seen that. But the 3-point line and the range that players are showing with their 3-point shooting, it's changing the way defenses have to think. I saw that quote from Paul [George] and my first thought was, ‘You're right.' I mean, a step-back 38-footer has never been a good shot. It was for Damian and there are a handful of guys that you actually have to guard out there. "
