The Rams addressed their three greatest needs -- tight end, receiver, safety -- with their first three picks on Friday. Heading into Day 3, the Rams' lingering needs are at center and linebacker, but they could always use more receivers and defensive backs.

Rams coach Sean McVay told local reporters that Gerald Everett, Cooper Kupp and John Johnson was "kind of exactly what we wanted to come out with." They will all compete for playing time. Said GM Les Snead: "I have a feeling Gerald's one of Sean's favorite players in the draft."

Third-round pick John Johnson said he "knew there was a shot" the Rams would draft him, "but I wouldn't say they were on me hot." How does he see himself? "I think I fit best as a safety, although I think I have a corner body type. I came into Boston College as a corner. I like covering man-to-man, and I like covering zone."

Johnson misses potential game-tying shot (0:26)

The Clippers survived to force a Game 7 despite nearly collapsing in crunch time. A 10-point lead with 1:29 remaining was sliced to three, and Jazz clutch star Joe Johnson had a chance to tie it with a 3-pointer with seconds remaining but missed. Chris Paul and Co. live to play another game. "It wouldn't be us if it wasn't dramatic," Paul said on ESPN after a pair of late turnovers almost spoiled his 29-point, 8-assist performance. The big question: How healthy will Jazz center Rudy Gobert be after hurting his ankle late in the third quarter?
