The Golden State Warriors, who have the best record in the NBA, beat the Houston Rockets, 126-113, on Wednesday. The Warriors had a 20-point lead at the half and things got chippy in the third as Steph Curry was called for some sort of offensive foul. Ariza then bumped into Curry on his way up court, which caused Curry to go after Ariza. Draymond Green grabbed the guard before he could get to the much bigger Rockets’ forward. Ariza found Curry coming at him kind of amusing, but seemed perplexed by the apparent $2,500 fine the NBA gave him. The Big Lead

Acy called the incident “a learning experience for me,’’ adding he watched the replay. “Obviously nobody wants to get suspended, hey, what can I do?” Acy said at the morning shootaround. “I fouled him hard. The foul was unnecessary. I didn’t have to foul him that hard. Which is why I kept walking towards him and was about to help him up. He got up and pushed. Anybody’s initial reaction is to react. But then I stopped myself and tried to grab him.’’ New York Post
