Kyle Korver still hasn't watched Game 3 of 2017 NBA Finals

Kyle Korver still hasn't watched Game 3 of 2017 NBA Finals

With about 2:30 remaining in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Cavs led 113-107 and had possession.

As Kevin Love went up for a layup, Draymond Green stripped the ball away.

A few seconds later, Steph Curry's layup made it 113-109.

After a LeBron James miss and a Kevin Durant score, the Cavs' lead was down to two.

And with 55 seconds remaining, LeBron drove middle and kicked the ball to an open Kyle Korver in the left corner (just in front of the Warriors' bench).

Korver missed, Kevin Durant got the rebound and ... well you know what happend next.

On Tuesday, Korver told reporters that he still hasn't rewatched Game 3 -- which essentially ended the series.

"The end of the year hurt me more than any other year that I've probably been it," Korver said (via Joe Vardon of cleveland.com). "That hurt, for sure.

"It was motivating to come back to try to get better this summer and to want to come back to this team. I think there's a renewed sense of urgency."

Crazy stat alert: During the regular season, Korver made over 59 percent (32-for-54) of his left corner 3s (!)

Klay Thompson makes his triumphant return to China

Klay Thompson makes his triumphant return to China

The sequel is rarely as good as its predecessor, but convention goes out the window when China Klay is involved.

That's right, Klay Thompson is back in China this summer. He made his first stop in Beijing on Saturday, and will spend the next seven days in the country. Here's his itinerary:

June 23 -- Beijing
June 25 -- Jinan
June 26 -- Zhengzhou
June 27 -- Taiyuan
June 28 -- Guiyang
June 30 -- Guangzhou

How many shots will he air ball? Will he only eat smoky foods? Two countries await those answers with baited breath. 

During the draft, the Warriors tried to trade up to select Jacob Evans

During the draft, the Warriors tried to trade up to select Jacob Evans

With the 28th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Warriors selected Jacob Evans.

"When our pick was up, it was clear it was him," Bob Myers told reporters on Thursday night. "There was no debate as far as who we were taking. When it got to us, he was the guy without hesitation."

You could say that the Warriors are lucky to have ended up with Evans.

The front office nearly executed a trade to ensure they got the Cincinnati product.

"We had a number of guys who we were really interested in, but I think as the draft started to continue to go on, it became pretty apparent to us that a bunch of the other guys that we liked were not going to be there," assistant GM Kirk Lacob said on 95.7 The Game on Friday morning. "We actually at one point tried to trade up to get Jacob -- we were getting a little worried that he wasn't gonna get there -- but we were really happy that he ended up with us."

Golden State also tried to buy a pick early in the second round, but couldn't strike a deal.
