The retired seven-time NBA champion Horry appeared this week on “The Crossover NBA Show” and named Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Damian Lillard as the greatest clutch shooter ever. Horry rounded out his top five with Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Ray Allen, and Steph Curry. Horry also declined to name himself, saying that he was only picking players who had plays primarily run for them. “People are going to say, ‘Damian Lillard? He hasn’t won anything,’” Horry said. “But Lillard has hit a clutch shot versus every team in the NBA. Think about that. Every team. The last minute or so of a game, he’s come through with a clutch shot, even though he got a lot of shots during the game.”

More on this storyline

Klay Thompson ended his night and the Grizzlies’ season with a game-high 30 points. He went 11-for-22 from the field, made his first five 3-pointers and finished 8-for-14 from long distance. This wasn’t just a shooting display from the Splash Brother, but a complete game to get one step closer to the ultimate prize. While making the nets drip in front of the home fans, Thompson also added eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks. Whether it was putting up points on the scoreboard, fighting for rebounds or playing sound defense on Grizzlies sharpshooter Desmond Bane, Thompson answered the call whenever the Warriors had to dial his number. This one meant more. “It felt better,” Thompson said of his latest legendary Game 6. “Honestly, especially the perspective I’ve gained from the injuries I’ve had. To now be able to compete at the highest level and be one of the final four teams, it’s a feeling that’s hard to describe, honestly. -via NBC Sports / May 14, 2022

After the Memphis Grizzlies bowed out of the postseason with a 110-96 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of their conference semifinals series, Memphis forward Dillon Brooks said that the Grizzlies are hot on the trail of the Warriors. “We’re young and they’re getting old,” Brooks said. “They know that we are going to come every single year.” -via ESPN / May 14, 2022
