What’s changed for Curry this season has been the presence of assistant coach Ron Adams, a longtime veteran of NBA coaching who’s known for his defensive excellence. “Just holding me to a higher standard,” Curry said of Adams’ influence. “Obviously we watch a lot of film and talk a lot about just how we’re supposed to see that end of the floor, what it means if I’m able to do what I’m supposed to do every single night for our team’s success. It doesn’t matter how many points I score. He seems to find that one or two things that I can do better on the defensive end after every game that kind of knocks you back into reality a little bit. You can always get better, and I have to be to be a championship-caliber point guard and for us to try to get where we’re trying to go.” Contra Costa Times

Curry, who signed a four-year, $44 million extension exactly two years earlier at a time when he was dealing with ankle issues, had it enter his mind that Thompson will be in place the next time he has his own contract decision to make. “That’s a big statement for sure,” Curry said Saturday of ownership and the front office awarding Thompson a maximum-salary contract. “They’re committed to putting together the roster that they feel is capable of winning a championship and doing whatever it takes to maintain that. Obviously I don’t know what the situation will be in two years (when his contract expires at the end of the 2016-17 season). The direction that we’re headed is definitely promising for sure. “To know a guy that I’ve been playing with for four years now who will have a couple more years under our belt and hopefully have some things to be proud of once we get to that point, then that will be something that I’ll definitely take into account and know what the situation might be at that point.” Contra Costa Times

Jackson said he was “crazy enough” to believe that Curry saw his ankle problems healed because God blessed the point guard who was “bold enough” to come to the altar at his church. “I was able to witness, share, testify and when necessary use words,” Jackson said. “It’s not like I was hitting them over the head with the Bible.” Contra Costa Times

Kobe Bryant hounded Stephen Curry in the backcourt, and all the way into the frontcourt, harassing the Golden State point guard with the Lakers trailing by 31 in a preseason game. It was probably one of those good-natured, one-superstar-to-another moment of levity. And then Curry stepped back and sank a 30-foot 3-pointer and spun to look at Kobe. And 36-year old Kobe smiled and patted on the 26-year old Curry on the butt. The Big Lead

Kerr and his staff are looking to reduce Curry's workload and have others help create easier scoring opportunities for the point guard who last season averaged career highs of 24 points and 8.5 assists. "A lot of people talk about the load I had last year," Curry said Monday at his ThanksUSA Golf Tournament. "Obviously I didn't feel it on the court. You love having those opportunities to make decisions, but when you're able to use every piece of talent we have on the roster that can make each others' jobs a little bit easier, that goes a long way. "So I'm sure they have the game plan to make it work, and we have to be coachable and figure out how to put the pieces together and make the right plays. Coach and (his staff) have done their homework. I'm sure they'll learn on the job obviously, but they know based on our roster what to do to put us in the best position to win, so we've got to accept that." Contra Costa Times

It was great to see Klay Thompson and Steph Curry playing for Team USA. ... I would imagine having Thompson selected to that team, and having (Mike) Krzyzewski and the other coaches talk about how good he is at both ends of the floor, really quieted a lot of us who thought the Warriors should have gone after Kevin Love. Do you feel that way? Kerr: No. I don’t really care about what anybody says about that. I only care about our own players — I don’t worry about speculation or what could’ve or what should’ve (happened) or anything like that. I just worry about our own guys and what we’re going to do. I do know this — if we can keep Steph and Klay together here, we have a chance to have one of the best backcourts in the NBA for many years to come. San Francisco Chronicle
