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

“I don’t even care about All-Star,” Harden said. “I’m so caught up on this team and how much talent we’ve got – this is probably the most talent we’ve had since I’ve been here – and the great opportunity we have, All-Star is in the back of my mind somewhere. Houston Chronicle

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

The Pistons have gone 11-2 since he was let go in the second season of a four-year, $54 million contract, causing some to throw around the phrase "addition by subtraction" when discussing their recent turnaround. "It didn't upset me," Smith said. "People have opinions and talk about things in the media that they don't necessarily personally know anything about. So you really can't let that affect what's going on." USA Today Sports
