With the Warriors up 3, 2 seconds to go, there was a funny sight on the (nationally televised) court. Though the game was still on the line and Dallas could inbound for a 3-point try, three rookies shared the floor for GSW. One of them, Kent Bazemore, had recently been called up from the D-League. He’s currently averaging 3.5 minutes per game, and he’s mostly known for his hilarious bench celebrations. Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green also calmly strutted about the hardwood. Perhaps it’s no shock to see a lottery pick like Barnes out there, but Draymond is a second rounder. In theory, this was the kind of situation where a “rookie mistake” might give away a sealed up game...
