The Warriors won 121-118 in overtime.

* Phil Jackson compared Stephen Curry to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf and we all had a laugh about it. Turns out Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had already brought that name up when discussing Curry. Welp.

On a related note, here’s an old HoopsHype interview with Abdul-Rauf. One of the best we’ve had (thanks to him).

* NBA players went nuts with Curry’s game-winning basket against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

One day later, Rockets draftee Sergio Llull made Curry’s shot look easy.

* When players become so good at one thing that a rule change is needed: Mavs owner Mark Cuban thinks the NBA should have a deeper three-point arc.

* Big man Kris Humphries is reportedly headed to the Atlanta Hawks. Nice pickup for a team that just lost Tiago Splitter for the rest of the season.

* Here’s Celtics head coach Brad Stevens casually dunking the ball.

* Amare Stoudemire says some on the Knicks team were not thrilled about Jeremy Lin being the new star. Hmmm, wonder who he’s referring to…

* Numbers: Derrick Rose is one of the most clutch players in the NBA.

* We have updated our mock draft: Serbian phenom Dragan Bender is moving up.

* Which players have the scoring records at each NBA arena? You don’t have to look that up because we did that for you. (Gilbert Arenas surprisingly has two).

* Darren Rovell makes some good points here: All journalists need to be data driven.

* Paul George used to get his behind kicked by his sister at basketball.
