It would have been easy for Curry or Thompson to force up a shot there, but Curry gave it to the guy with the right matchup.
A good example of why the Warriors are great: Harrison Barnes had the best matchup there, so he got the ball for the game's biggest shot.
These weeks between Colbert ending and Larry Wilmore’s show debuting are going to be excruciating.
KAREEM COLBERT ALERT
Always nice to have those occasional reminders that basketball can be awesome and it can be exciting, too.
The NBA should treat West & East like relegation. Two top teams in the East go to the West, two bottom teams in the West fall to East.
"I think they were missing me a little bit," Jose Calderon joked about the Mavericks getting Rondo.
Reminder: Kevin Durant, not fair.
More Barkley: "Phil's gotten sensitive in his old age."
Charles Barkley on Phil tweeting at him: "He's too old to be tweeting."
Bullsheet is proving useful and also happens to be printed on really high quality paper. Kudos to the Chicago Bulls media staff.
Oh my god, the Bulls amazingly call their pregame notes packet "Bullsheet."
The Atlantic now has two teams in supreme tank mode.
"I just cannot fathom seeing our guys struggling and playing without at least one of their star players." - Amar'e on forgoing planned rest.
The Spurs are the seventh seed in the West right now and the team right above them just got better.
The Knicks starting five tonight: Calderon, Hardaway, Wear, Stoudemire, Aldrich.
The Knicks have deleted the tweet about it being an ankle issue with Carmelo Anthony. So it's the knee, probably.
Rondo going to the Mavericks just reinforces that we need to get rid of conferences.
The Knicks say that Carmelo Anthony will sit out tonight. They said it's a sore left ankle.
Awww man, the Eastern Conference is just terrible.
Boston gets one first rounder for Rondo in his prime, a year after hauling in three for aging Pierce and Garnett.
The Mavs just followed Rondo, Pierce, T-Mac, Popeye Jones, and Wayne Newton. Best starting 5 EVER.
Amid questions today about the condition of his left knee, Carmelo Anthony has tweeted that he likes The Pinkprint.
The NBA players union is having a logo design contest. One that somehow depicts a person's past, strewn with male bones, automatically wins.
Wait, let me rephrase. The Knicks project to win 0.03 championships in the next 5 years. The Nets project to win 0.04. *does keg stand*
Worst 10 players in 2P% this year (min. 200 attempts): Wiggins, DeRozan, Josh Smith, Alec Burks, Kemba, Kobe, Deron, MCW, Lawson, Hibbert.
Jarrett Jack’s shot chart from three-point range this year, is, uh, something. http://t.co/qWTLaTxx9X
The Atlanta Hawks (18-7) have gotten off to an amazing start. It's becoming more and more certain they will own Brooklyn's draft pick.
So many coaches just refuse to foul up three in the final 10 seconds or so, and their reasons for why not to never make much sense.
Lionel Hollins' old team, the Memphis Grizzlies, beat the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Raptors forward Patrick Patterson: "Going up against Brooklyn tonight, what we did, it's not a shock."
Kyle Lowry & Lionel Hollins hug on the way off the court, & then Greivis Vasquez runs over, hugs Hollins & throws his arm over his shoulder
Bruno Caboclo, the Raptors' first round pick and human victory cigar, checks into the game.
The fans here are thrilled with the way this one is going. Doesn't make up for the way the playoffs ended, I'm sure, but they're enjoying it
Fans inside Air Canada Centre chanting "Brooklyn Sucks" as Joe Johnson misses all three free throws after being fouled on a 3-pointer.
“Brooklyn Sucks” chants audible on the broadcast. Joe Johnson misses three consecutive free throws. This is the nadir.
"Brooklyn Sucks" chant now going on all over the arena.
The one thing Deron Williams still has: many of Plumlee’s easy baskets are/were created by him. Beyond that, it’s been ugly.
Since the Nets went 13-for-22 in the first quarter, they have gone 19-for-55 (34.5 percent)
JJ and JJ miss bad J’s, but then the other JJ gets a nice and-1.
Bogdanovic hit his rookie wall. And now he's pounding his head against it.
Mason Plumlee is not as talented as Brook Lopez, which is what makes him more effective in this lineup right now.
Mason Plumlee has had back to back 20-point games this season and Brook Lopez has not.
Mason Plumlee really has been excellent since moving back into the starting lineup. Already up to 20 points in this one.
Jarrett Jack calls one of the Nets plays, then pulls up for a contested midrange jumper. Why even call a play?
At what point do the Raptors start the Hack-A=Plums?
Seriously, I think the most common thing ever said about Deron Williams the player is that he has problems finishing at the rim.
Bad night for Deron Williams, again.
Plumlee & Valanciunas each struggling to guard the other at what they do best. Been a fascinating battle between the two.
Deron Williams shooting 3-9 from inside the arc. Bad running theme.
In response to what Lowry told Grantland, Hollins said "there's two sides to every story." Said earlier Lowry asked to be traded from Griz.
Raptors up 1,123-1,122 in the last 10.5 Nets-Raptors games.
Was wondering where Mirza Teletovic had been, and here he comes back into the game. Had a big ice pack on his hip.
Drake on Joe Johnson: “he’s got my haircut. He’s too old for that haircut."
