But Harris and Redick were each 2-of-7 shooting for a combined nine points. "I mean I'm always putting it on me to help him". D'Angelo Russell scored 19 of his 26 points in the first half to pave the way, and Caris LeVert added 23.


The release comes amid continued pressure on billionaire President Donald Trump to show his tax returns.

Sanders recently revealed that his income from book sales in the aftermath of that race had made him a millionaire.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Sanders released his 2014 tax returns and said he would release more if he earned the nomination. He also conceded that vague promises from Sanders and the campaign about their plans had contributed to the speculation. Harris entered the race in mid-January, compared to early February for Booker and mid-February for Sanders.

"I think there was some interpretation left to 'soon, ' which I, in retrospect, would've loved to have alleviated by being a little bit more clear about when it was coming", Shakir said.
