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

Trevor Ariza‘s nose was practically in Curry’s mouthpiece, but he still got it off — and it still went in. Curry turned to the fan — the look of astonishment on the face of his female companion was the stuff of Deadspin glory — removed his mouthpiece and glared. “I don’t even remember what he said,” Curry said. “A four-letter word I can’t repeat. That’s when I turned and said, ‘Sit down,’ just having fun with him. If they want to talk, hopefully they can take some back.” CBSSports.com

But even a single victory, guard Jason Terry said in the wake of the Rockets' Game 3 blowout loss, is a challenge for this team at this time. The Rockets face more elemental challenges, he said, if they hope to contend in Game 4 on Monday night. "We've got to win one possession, one quarter, even," Terry said. "We can't even worry about winning a whole ballgame at this point. "They had another great first quarter. They got off to an outstanding start, 30 points in the first quarter. That's two games in a row, and you can't do that. You can't allow it to happen against a team that shoots the ball well." Houston Chronicle

He remained evasive on exactly what changes he has made, but suggested it's been a sizable lifestyle overhaul, all with the hope of "being the guy that I know I can be." Added Sullinger: "Everyone has questioned me before -- said I'm not the most athletic, not this guy, not that guy -- and every level I’ve proved them wrong. It's another chance for me to show my work." ESPN.com
