NBA schedule and results: Cavs host Raptors, Mavericks battle Grizzlies
The Cavs have won seven straight games, but that streak will be put to the test on Tuesday against Toronto. The Raptors handed Cleveland its last loss before losing to the Cavs on Friday. In the West the Mavericks and Grizzlies will meet for a Southwest division battle.
Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob recently explained the reasons for firing Mark Jackson after last season, and the former Warriors head coach responded with comments of his own while giving a sermon at True Love Worship Center International in Los Angeles, according to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.
Speaking in front of a cheering congregation, Jackson said Lacob “put me on blast” and “said I was good for nothing, an owner that knew me for three years and spent a couple of minutes around me, an owner that had the audacity to say that 200 folks don’t like me in the business.”
Lacob’s initial comments came at a venture capitalists luncheon last Wednesday. Lacob said that while Jackson did an admirable job bringing the Warriors to the playoffs two seasons in a row, he couldn’t be kept around because 200 people in the organization didn’t like him.
Lacob reached out to Jackson over the weekend to apologize for the comments, but that didn’t stop the former coach from responding in his sermon.
