Local spotlight

In addition to scoring 26 points McCaw made a 3-pointer and drove for a layup in the final two minutes to twice give the Warriors a two-possession lead.

On the scene

LeBron James sat courtside for the Los Angeles Lakers-Philadelphia 76ers game at the Thomas & Mack Center. Also making appearances throughout the day were former longtime NBA veteran Terry Cummings, ex-NBA coach Del Harris and former player and coach Kiki Vandeweghe, and current Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni.
