The Golden State Warriors, who have the best record in the NBA, beat the Houston Rockets, 126-113, on Wednesday. The Warriors had a 20-point lead at the half and things got chippy in the third as Steph Curry was called for some sort of offensive foul. Ariza then bumped into Curry on his way up court, which caused Curry to go after Ariza. Draymond Green grabbed the guard before he could get to the much bigger Rockets’ forward. Ariza found Curry coming at him kind of amusing, but seemed perplexed by the apparent $2,500 fine the NBA gave him. The Big Lead

The typically mild-mannered point guard got involved in a rare altercation before finishing with 22 points and 10 assists, and the Warriors held off the Houston Rockets 126-113 on Wednesday night for their franchise-record 17th straight home win. Curry, who already had a technical foul, ran at Trevor Ariza after the Rockets forward bumped him on the way down court early in the third quarter. Curry had to be held back by teammate Draymond Green, and officials called a technical foul on Ariza following a video review. "That's about as mad as I've seen him," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of his star guard. USA Today Sports

Draymond Green: Because the first couple weeks of training camp I was struggling bad. Taking bad shots, turning the ball over. It just wasn’t me. I’m trying to prove that I can do this, I can do that, because I was worried about that. And I talked to them, talked to Bob (Myers) and B.J. Armstrong, my agent, and it was just, ‘Be you, you do what you’ve got to do and that’ll take care of itself.’ So at this point I don’t think about it at all. I can honestly say that without lying. Obviously you’re reading stuff on the internet and you’re on Twitter and that’s just this in day in age. But going on the floor? Thinking I need to get this number to get this amount of dollars… I don’t think about it one bit. It’s so fun playing with this team. You’ve got seize this moment. You don’t get to play with a team like this all the time. San Jose Mercury-News

Q: Can you imagine leaving this group? I guess that must hit you that you wouldn’t want to, all things being equal. Draymond Green: Exactly. And who knows what the future holds? So I’m going to enjoy this team because it’s so fun to play with these guys, so fun. Obviously winning helps that; it’s a great coaching staff, great organization. Just live in this moment and enjoy this year. All that stuff will take care of itself. You know, if I sit and worry about it July 1st isn’t coming any faster than it’s coming, anyway. I’ll just enjoy playing with this team–it’s so fun being out there, practice, whatever. It’s hard to sit and think about your contract because you’re having so much fun, you get lost in these moments. I lose myself in these moments because it’s so fun, it’s so enjoyable, it’s a great atmosphere. To think about my contract, I’d be doing myself a disservice. San Jose Mercury-News

Golden State forward Draymond Green, unhappy with a 100-86 loss to the Clippers on Thursday night, said the Warriors "were too nice" and should have keyed more on the teams' oft-contentious rivalry. "I don't know what the cause of it was, maybe everybody was a little too jolly, Christmas spirit," said Green, who had 10 points and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes. "But it was too nice. It was boring."
