Marreese Speights lost a shoe and Stephen Curry threw it out of the way. On the next trip down the court, Curry picked up the shoe and tried to toss it to a trailing Speights. Then Tyson Chandler came flying out of nowhere to swat the shoe into the stands. It was the kind of play that may finally force the NBA to rewrite the rule book. The Big Lead

Currently the assistant head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Alvin Gentry has moved on after being fired as head coach of the Phoenix Suns in 2013. As evidence of his coaching acumen, he’s played an instrumental role in the resounding success the Warriors have enjoyed thus far in the 2014-2015 NBA season. However, Gentry still has a remaining tie to Arizona: a Scottsdale home that he’s had on the market since May. Listed by Lesley McGee, the price has been cut three times to land at the current asking price of $1.06 million, a 10% reduction off the original price tag. Realtor

The Warriors were crossing t’s and dotting i’s on Klay Thompson’s $70 million contract extension last month when the 24-year-old hit general manager Bob Myers with a peculiar question. Thompson wanted to know how much longer the proceedings might take. “We were trying to get the contract signed, and all he wanted to do was go home to his dog,” Myers said. San Francisco Chronicle

Warriors center Andrew Bogut will miss at least the back-to-back games at Dallas and New Orleans over the weekend due to right knee tendinitis after having the knee drained. Bogut, who will be reevaluated Monday, had the knee issue limit him to two minutes at Minnesota and keep him out of Wednesday’s win against Houston that extended the Warriors’ winning streak to 14 games.

General manager Bob Myers said on 95.7 The Game that the Warriors have contacted the representatives of free agent guard Ray Allen. "We threw our team out there at his representation and I think they're vetting what they want to do," Myers said. "Obviously you've got to look at a guy like that. He's a smart enough guy. He's going to look around the league to see what's best for him." Allen averaged 9.6 points per game last year for the Miami Heat, the lowest total of his 18-year career and the first time he has been under double-digits. The two-time NBA champion is the league's all-time leader in 3-pointers. "He's an elite shooter, he's elite professional and he's been there," Myers said. "He checks a lot of boxes for a player that you want." San Jose Mercury-News

While Allen could be a good addition, Myers acknowledged the problem of finding him playing time could be an issue. "We don't have enough minutes as it is, so it's a question of chemistry too," Myers said. San Jose Mercury-News

Lee's involvement was limited to half court 3-on-3 action at the end of Thursday's practice. The power forward will travel with the team on its three-game trip that opens Saturday against the Mavericks, but Kerr said steps remain before he can return to the court. "The first thing is to play half court," Kerr said. "Then he's got to get up and down the floor and play some full court before he's ready to be out there in a game. He's coming along." The team will see how Lee responds Friday to his work at practice and determine if he's ready for that next step. Lee has played only seven minutes this season and has missed the past 17 games because of a strained left hamstring. San Jose Mercury-News
