Stu Jackson: Baffled #Howard contact was not upgraded to FFP2. Hard contact to face, reckless, released arm and flailed for free head shot and history. Twitter

The NBA's review of Dwight Howard's contact with Andrew Bogut concluded that it did not rise to the level of excessive because Howard was trying to free himself from a tie-up with Bogut, president of basketball operations Rod Thorn told CBSSports.com Tuesday. "It was a very close call as far as I'm concerned," Thorn said. "As Bogut is holding his arm down, Howard tries to extricate his arm. He doesn't hit him with his elbow, by the way. He hits him with the back of his hand, maybe a touch of the wrist. To me, it was unnecessary, but I didn't think it was excessive." CBSSports.com

Marc Stein: The offensive rebound you grabbed yesterday, sneaking inside, outfoxing Dwight to the ball... How proud are you of that? Stephen Curry: Probably my best rebound to date. Just the right place at the right time. He didn't see me coming in. Got the body on him, I was just able to grab it with one hand... In the playoffs, random stuff like that happens, and you just want to try to impact the game in any way you can. ESPN.com

Harden fell to the floor and put his hands over his head as the Warriors celebrated on the court, the sellout crowd of 19,596 roared, and golden-yellow confetti fell from the rafters. "Kicking chairs," Harden said. "It's frustrating. It's frustrating to give the game away like that." Harden had 38 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and Dwight Howard overcame a sprained left knee that slowed him down to finish with 19 points and 17 rebounds for a Rockets team headed home in a major hole.

"Sometimes I want to crack open a beer and get a courtside seat," Warriors center Andrew Bogut said of the Curry-Harden fireworks. "Because these two guys, they're the two best basketball players in the world. "Steph knocks down a big shot and then we've got to come down and try to stop James, and he knocks down a big shot. ... A lot of times I get caught watching, going crazy with the shots that he makes. "It's an honor to be his teammate." San Jose Mercury-News
