Before Joe Prunty and Luke Walton coached against one another on Friday night, Prunty recalled when he was one of Walton's coaches two decades ago at the University of San Diego High School. "So I was the freshman coach [and] a varsity assistant and coached him in a few games and I'll take credit for everything if you want… I'm just kidding," said Prunty, who also was reunited with Walton as an assistant for the Cavaliers when Walton was traded to Cleveland in 2012. "Unbelievable player. His IQ was and still is off the charts. Him and his brothers were tremendous high school players, just in terms of being able to pass and make plays for people and with their size being able to handle the ball. It was fun to watch them play and be a part of them developing."
