The Raiders have released popular punter Marquette King.
The Nets trail only Houston for 3-pointers made league-wide. The Rockets entered Saturday with an NBA-record 1,213.
It was Brooklyn’s 15th straight game with double-digit 3-pointers made, setting a franchise record.
The Loyola men’s basketball team was honored at the game after their surprising recent Final Four run in the NCAA Tournament.
Former Ramblers star Milton Doyle, a Nets rookie from Chicago, proudly watch his team make the run as an 11-seed.
“It was just like watching my family, enjoying all the success,” Doyle said. “It was great seeing everything that was going on and them getting all the praises and all the shout-outs from the big stars.”
Kilpatrick had at least 20 points for the third straight game, matching the longest streak of his career. He has scored double digits in six of the seven games he has played for Chicago since signing on March 26.
Nets: The teams will meet again Monday in Brooklyn, then the Nets will close the season Wednesday in Boston.
Bulls: After Monday’s rematch, the Bulls will close their season Wednesday against visiting Detroit.
Pryor will join a Jets receiving corps led by Jermaine Kearse, Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa (who missed all of 2017 with a neck injury), ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. He also will be reuniting with two former Browns teammates: quarterback Josh McCown and running back Isaiah Crowell.
Milwaukee also committed an error for the seventh straight contest after pinch hitter Tommy La Stella’s hard bouncer caromed off Aguilar’s chest at first into short right, allowing Victor Caratini to score from second.
The errors “get a little magnified,” manager Craig Counsell said. “Three shutouts in a seven-game homestand, that is probably the surprising thing for me.”
Cubs: 1B Anthony Rizzo missed a third straight game with back tightness. Maddon said Rizzo might miss the Cubs’ home opener on Monday against Pittsburgh, but he wasn’t “overly concerned” after talking to the first baseman and the trainer. “Everything I’m hearing from him and the trainers is that he’s doing … better, so I don’t think we’re far off,” he said.
