Stephen Curry was headed to the ground, but the ball was destined for the net.
The trial-and-error process at the starting small forward spot for the Clippers continues on Sunday vs. Minnesota. Veteran Luc-Mbah-a-Moute will start. Doc Rivers says that defense is paramount on Sunday, which is what informed his decision.
Charlotte has gone 7-2 at home this season, going 4-1 on the current homestand. The Hornets look to continue their winning ways against the Bucks, who've lost 5 of their past 6 games. Follow live
Pau Gasol acknowledged that he still enjoys the challenge of facing off against the San Antonio Spurs. Gasol and the Bulls play the Spurs on Monday night. "I do enjoy playing against one of the best teams, I think, in the history of the game," Gasol said after Sunday's practice. "They've been incredible for the last 15, 16, 17 years now since they won that first championship. So really impressive what they've done. I think everybody is trying to follow up on what they've accomplished. And building that culture, longevity. So yeah, I still do get very much motivated against a team that's always at the top of the league."
The Houston Rockets are expected to play their "big" starting five again against the Knicks tonight. The lineup features Dwight Howard & Clint Capela so it will be an interesting test for New York's two starting bigs -- Robin Lopez and Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis had 24 points, 14 rebounds and 7 blocks against Houston last week but Howard sat out of the game as a precaution.
Sixers rookie Jahlil Okafor was stopped by police three weeks ago for going 108 mph on the Ben Franklin Bridge, according to a report in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The speed limit on the bridge is 40 mph. Story
Saturday kicked off the Lakers' only four-game-in-five-night set of the season and, all told, their most brutal stretch of 2015-16 -- 10 games in 15 days, including their longest road trip of the season, an eight-games-in-12-days trip that begins Tuesday in Philadelphia.
Steve Ilardi writes of the Knicks' rookie: "Kristaps Porzingis already looks like the real deal. The 20-year-old center leads all rookies in RPM (1.42) despite a mediocre offensive contribution so far." Can he keep it up? (Insider)
What if the Warriors win it all again while remaining the most frivolous team in the league? Then what does everyone else do?
LeBron's no-frills attitude reminds me of Magic Johnson after he lost to the Celtics in 84. The fun was gone. But he won 3 of next 4 chips
Brook Lopez was in LeBron James' face, but the running floater with just a second left was good and it gave the Cavs the win.
Nuggets C Nikola Jokic might have gotten a little carried away when he attempted a no-look pass in transition.
Denver scored 5 points in the 3rd quarter -- and this play did not help.
DeMar DeRozan's drive didn't earn him the score, but the pass to Cory Joseph led to the buzzer-beating 3 for a Raptors' win against the Wizards.
Stephen Curry scores 19 points, and Draymond Green's triple-double of 13 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists helps the Warriors to a 120-101 victory over the Kings.
Cory Joseph hit a game winner for Toronto on Saturday, but his best play might've been when he sent Bradley Beal crashing to the hardwood.
Anthony Davis can throw down, and he proves it on this alley-oop. He finished with 36 points and 11 rebounds in a 101-87 loss to the Jazz.
Kobe Bryant said he wasn't sure if he'll play Sunday in the second leg of a back-to-back against Indiana.
