THREE POINTS

Warrior Mentality: Golden State begins Week 21 with a 1˝-game lead over second-place Denver in the Western Conference. The teams meet Friday in Oakland (ESPN), their third matchup of the season after splitting the first two games. Most recently, the Warriors shot a season-high 60 percent from the field and made 21 three-pointers in a 142-111 win in Denver on Jan. 15. Golden State’s week also includes a home game against Boston on Tuesday (TNT).

To be Young: Atlanta’s Trae Young is averaging 32.0 points and 9.5 assists in six games since the All-Star break. Young’s 49 points in a quadruple-overtime loss to the Bulls on March 1 were the most by a rookie since Brandon Jennings scored 55 points in 2009. He is only the second player in NBA history to have 49 points and 16 assists in a game, joining James Harden. Fueled by Young and second-year forward John Collins (19.5 ppg), the Hawks are 16-19 since a 6-23 start.

Like Mike: LeBron James opens Week 21 needing 40 points to pass Michael Jordan (32,292) for fourth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. The Lakers play the Clippers tonight on NBA TV, followed by visits from the Nuggets on Wednesday (ESPN) and the Celtics on Saturday (ABC).

THIS DAY IN THE NBA

March 4, 1982 San Antonio’s George Gervin racked up 48 points, surpassing 19,000 career points, in a 110-101 loss to Boston.

March 4, 1996 Utah’s John Stockton hands out 11 assists during the Jazz’ 110-87 victory over Phoenix, becoming the first NBA player to collect 11,000 career assists.

March 4, 1998 Arbitrator John Feerick upheld the NBA's suspension of Latrell Sprewell for the 1997-98 season, resulting in a monetary penalty of $6.4 million, finding that the NBA's investigation was "done in good faith and was fair and adequate.” Feerick also found "that the NBA complied with the standards of industrial due process." He reduced the NBA's suspension to the extent it had included approximately one month of the 1998-99 season. However, the arbitrator reinstated Sprewell's contract with Golden State for the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 seasons, finding that the combination of a one-season suspension and a contract termination would not be appropriate under all of the circumstances.
