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

"It's a tool that we're going to use, and we have used, to make our NBA team better," Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. USA Today Sports
Nearly halfway through the season, the Warriors are at the top, the Knicks under Derek Fisher are at the bottom. “I totally feel for [Fisher]. The NBA is a roller coaster.
