Fellow lottery pick De’Aaron Fox has known Lonzo Ball since high school, but is perhaps most frequently linked to him ahead of the 2017 NBA Draft for Fox’s dominating effort (39 points on 13-of-20 shooting) in his Kentucky team’s NCAA Tournament win over Ball’s UCLA team this spring.

James finished with just 11 points and didn’t score at all in the final 16 minutes of the game as Boston pushed back from a 21-point deficit to move the series to 2-1.

He’s got to be aggressive, get downhill, play like he’s been playing, play confident,Smith said Monday after practice. That’s what I always think, (with) people of his stature or people like him, you’ve got to play confident the whole night and play aggressive. It’s the Eastern Conference finals. It’s not enough for him. For what he does, what he brings, it’s not enough. He knows that. We know that. Just expect him to be better in Game 4.

We had opportunities, James said. It is what it is. They played a helluva game and they took it to us and we weren’t able to stop the runs that they made, the momentum that they [built]. Some of the plays that we made, some of the plays that I made, I was like, ‘What are we doing?’ or ‘What could I have done better?’ But you figure out the next game and go forward.
