PHILADELPHIA — Kelly Oubre Jr. wanted to set the record straight — yes, a vehicle struck him as he walked near his home and the driver fled. Yes, he suffered a traumatic injury. And no, he doesn’t care for anyone who questioned his account of what happened on that Philadelphia street last month.
“This was and is a very traumatic situation for me and my family,” Oubre told reporters Monday at the Philadelphia 76ers‘ complex in New Jersey. “So, I just wish that my life wasn’t like ‘The Truman Show’ where everybody kind of watched it and have their own opinion about my life.”
In a since-deleted post, an anonymous social media user last month said a girl who is seen with Giddey in videos and photographs was a high school junior at the time. The social media account has since been deactivated.
Giddey, who is from Australia, turned 21 in October. He and the Thunder have declined to comment on the situation so far.
“We just looked at each other like ‘We’re straight,'” Pelicans forward Zion Williamson said.
Having already beaten the Kings two times this season in New Orleans, the Pelicans expected Sacramento to punch early. The key, CJ McCollum said, was to not get knocked out.
Coach Willie Green’s game plan at the time was simple: one stop, one score, one stop, one score — that repeated enough times would bring the Pelicans right back into the game, which they eventually won 127-117 to advance to the tournament semifinals in Las Vegas.
“The biggest thing I saw in that game was trust,” Green said. “Our guys just stuck together, they stuck together in the huddle, and they continued to make the
During the game, the Kings issued a statement offering their condolences.
“During the first quarter of the Kings vs. Pelicans game, a guest had a medical emergency,” the statement said. “EMS immediately responded and administered CPR. Tragically, these efforts were unsuccessful and the guest passed away. The organization offers its deepest condolences to the guest’s family and loved ones.”
The Sacramento Metro Fire Department said the victim was a man in his 30s, FOX40 News later reported, with the outlet detailing that he was unresponsive when medics arrived, and after 20 minutes, he was pronounced dead.
Keegan Murray, a forward for the Kings, spoke to reporters after their 127-117 loss, and said the team wasn’t “aware” of the
BROOKLYN — Brooklyn announced late Saturday afternoon that forward Ben Simmons had received an epidural injection in his back, meaning his absence with a nerve issue in his lower back will stretch to more than a month.
“The epidural happened within the course of this week here,” coach Jacque Vaughn said before the Nets beat the NBA’s hottest team, the Orlando Magic, 129-101 at Barclays Center on Saturday night. “It was just a part of his getting back to playing, and that is a part of his treatment, a part of his strengthening that was just a part of his getting back to a position of joining us. No setbacks.
“Right now he is still doing low-level stuff on the court. So no rebounding drills, no sprinting up the floor. Then, in two weeks, you’ll continue to strengthen it and we’ll have something
“The first half, I was dead,” Haliburton said later.
So, at halftime, Haliburton — at the behest of the athletic training staff — did something he’s never done before: he used an inhaler.
As a result, when the second half started, he looked like himself again — and the Pacers looked like a totally different team. And, behind Haliburton’s first career triple-double — 26 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists in 40 minutes — Indiana emerged with a 122-112 victory over the heavily favored Celtics to advance to the in-season tournament semifinals in Las Vegas on Thursday.
“It feels good to win,” Haliburton said with a smile, “especially

The inaugural NBA In-Season Tournament is moving right along, and with group stage over we look ahead to the knockout rounds with eight teams still alive for a chance to win the NBA Cup. The knockout stage starts Monday night, and here’s the bracket. Just to quickly recap how we got to this point, six of the eight teams that advanced got here after winning their group by either having the best record, or having the higher point differential, which is why the Boston Celtics (+27) advanced over the Orlando Magic (+22) and Brooklyn Nets (+20). The other two teams — The Phoenix Suns and the New York Knicks — were given wild-card spots after finishing with the highest point differential out of remaining teams.
In a recent interview with The Athletic, Harden got candid about the situation, and explained the backstory that led to him calling out Morey, whom he once had a decade-long close working relationship with. While everything bubbled to the surface this past offseason, it actually started in the summer of 2022. At the end of the 2021-22 season, Harden declined his $47.3 million player
