Curry didn’t miss two in a row. Even with Pondexter and Anthony Davis contesting his shot and knocking him over during the follow-through, Curry drilled the game-tying three-pointer with 2.8 seconds left. “Once I got it off, I was just bracing for impact,” Curry said. “I got hit pretty hard and thought I was going to get the foul. I’ve actually seen the play (on video), and it was pretty obvious. Once I landed and didn’t get hurt, I looked up and saw the ball go in. … It was a good feeling.” San Francisco Chronicle

“I’ve been in the league 25 years, and I can’t go back and say that anyone can shoot the ball off the dribble like Steph can,” Gentry told SI.com last week. There’s evident pride when Gentry describes the sacrifices made by former starters David Lee and Andre Iguodala. There’s satisfaction as he recalls seeing the instant chemistry during team dinners back in the fall. When Draymond Green’s name is mentioned, Gentry chuckles. “We’ve asked him to guard everyone from LaMarcus Aldridge and Anthony Davis, to two-guards. He’s the heart and soul.” And there’s a touch of awe as he considers Kerr’s ability to boost Golden State by 16 wins, a feat that saw the first-time head coach finish second in the Coach of the Year voting to Atlanta's Mike Budenholzer. “It’s like golf,” Gentry mused. “It’s easy to go from shooting 120 to 95. [Kerr] took a golfer who was in the high-80s and he’s got them shooting in the high-60s now. That’s really, really tough.” Sports Illustrated
NBA coaches are usually a little anxious about their players having multiple off nights in New Orleans, a city filled with top-notch cuisine, great music and plenty of opportunities for all-night fun and trouble along Bourbon Street. But don’t count Warriors head coach Steve Kerr among the apprehensive. “I don’t worry too much about our guys,” Kerr said. “They’re in the hotel, watching movies and playing video games. … I don’t think you’ll see anybody at Jazz Fest.” San Francisco Chronicle
