Matt Steinmetz @SteinmetzNBA
I’ll just say it: Steph Curry just played 83 minutes total, back-to-back nights, at almost 34 years old, goes 18-for-48 from field, but there’s nothing to see here. Sorry, I don’t get it. – 3:29 AM

Steph Curry’s buzzer beater was a pressure release for a struggling Warriors team that needed it. There are still issues to solve.
Five observations theathletic.com/3085582/2022/0…2:27 AM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Christian Wood: “We can compete with the top teams in the West, top teams in general actually. We shouldn’t put our head down. It was a tough game, we should bounce back, we have a few days off coming up, some winnable games coming up too. We just have to stay together.” – 2:27 AM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
Steph Curry hit his first career game-winning buzzer-beater with a jumper to push the Warriors over the Rockets on Friday night. Here’s the highlight. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/21/wat…2:26 AM
Matt Steinmetz @SteinmetzNBA
Two players in my lifetime have mesmerized and captivated me: Bird and Curry. Magic, Jordan, LeBron, even Kareem etc. we’re unreal. But Bird and Curry did stuff I never thought could be done. – 2:19 AM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
The shot didn’t go in, but the play Silas drew to free up Garrison Mathews for that 3 was really something pic.twitter.com/qUOaIdVIF02:18 AM

Matt Steinmetz @SteinmetzNBA
Idiots don’t get it. Curry is worth two great offensive players. He can be dominant PG or great shooting guard who doesn’t have to handle. – 2:10 AM
Matt Steinmetz @SteinmetzNBA
The reason Warriors were never the Rockets is because Stephen Curry ain’t James Harden. So why do you want him to be him??? – 2:04 AM

What makes Curry among greatest guards of all time is he CAN play off ball! In fact, he excels at it. His non-one-dimensional game is one of reasons he is among greatest! – 1:41 AM

Christian Wood may get a fine, hard to say, but he criticized the officiating tonight. He also specifically cited the double standard on the Curry elbow to KPJ not getting reviewed but the Garrison Mathews foul being reviewed and called flagrant. – 1:19 AM
Steve Luhm @sluhm
Sneaky good play by Steph Curry before his game-winner, it looked like to me. Bringing the ball right to left after the inbounds pass, he smacked Kevin Porter Jr. in the face with it. Gave him a half-step advantage. That’s all he needed. – 1:07 AM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
I do have one fairly hot Warriors take, but I’ll save it for another night. Glad they got this win, if only to give everyone a chance to exhale and acknowledge some of the recent struggles. – 1:07 AM

Silas on Green’s night, shooting struggles but good effort plays down the stretch. Was proud of the good plays he had and shots he took, key offensive rebounds and a big stop on Curry.
“He’ll be disappointed but shouldn’t be overly disappointed. Another learning moment.” – 12:47 AM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
whenever a high-profile player gets hurt and the team struggles people always superfluous on here like “this is why he MVP”. after watching GS these last two nights against Houston and the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, im here to say forget the MVP put Draymond in the hall of fame. – 12:43 AM

Believe it or not, that is Stephen Curry’s first career game-winning buzzer-beater tonight vs Houston. Curry’s game-winning buzzer-beater was also the first by a Warriors player since Andre Iguodala on Jan. 3, 2014 against the Hawks (which was assisted by Curry). @ESPNStatsInfo pic.twitter.com/lxJjzx1lUR12:43 AM

Curry shot is the game-winner. But Rockets went scoreless in the final three minutes, missing their last four shots with two turnovers. They won those close games by making their shots, rather than holding on to a safe lead. – 12:37 AM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
Exciting, but Warriors just barely survived the lowly Houston Rockets at home after an embarrassing loss to Pacers. Hello. Glad Curry got something out of his 80 minutes over back-to-back nights against substandard teams. – 12:36 AM

I applaud this decision by Silas to keep Jalen Green in. He’s 0-11 from the floor but something could happen here in the final minutes to spark his confidence. More important than the outcome. – 12:25 AM

That break by Curry highlights another element the Warriors really miss with Draymond: is transition. They are always walking the ball up. Ideally they want Curry on the finishing end of those but the Warriors are short on players who can make that happen – 12:24 AM

Kerr joked he’s not in a giving mood and declines to name who will start for Klay on the second night of a back to back, and whether Kuminga still starts for Draymond. – 8:23 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Andrew Wiggins will go through pregame warmups before a final decision is made about if he’s playing or not, but Steve Kerr says he should be OK. – 8:20 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Quin said he’d love to get Eric Paschall some more minutes, and noted he deserves to play, but said he felt like they need to have a traditional rolling big as much as possible (hence the Dok minutes vs. Houston), and wants to get Rudy Gay settled at the 4, so it’s hard. – 7:35 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Expected Lu Dort to guard LaMelo Ball, but Aaron Wiggins is getting the assignment.
Dort is on Miles Bridges. – 7:14 PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Giving up assets to trade away Russell Westbrook for John Wall sounds as ridiculous as giving up assets to trade away Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for Ben Simmons.
And yet somehow both those ideas have been floated today. – 6:39 PM

#lakeshow fans should hit Phase 4 of #Rockets trade talks by Tuesday:
Phase 1: “No way! Russ is better than Wall!”
Phase 2: “I might do Russ for Wall.”
Phase 3: “I’m not including a 1st! A 2nd is better than nothing!”
Phase 4: “Do you want the 2027 or 2028 unprotected first?” – 5:40 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
From Doc Rivers pregame:
-Seth Curry still questionable with left ankle soreness
-Jaden Springer call-up about needing healthy bodies, hasn’t had a chance to watch him with Blue Coats
-Thinks Charlie Brown Jr. has chance to be “great defender” in NBA, that he struggled vs. ORL – 5:33 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Andrew Wiggins is listed as QUESTIONABLE for tonight’s game v. Houston with left foot soreness on the latest injury report. – 4:47 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
My prediction is that the Lakers don’t trade Russell Westbrook for John Wall. I think they do everything possible to make it work this year, and if it doesn’t, they trade his expiring deal in the offseason for a few overpaid role players on long-term deals
I’m like 65-35 on this – 4:44 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Added to Warriors injury list: Andrew Wiggins (L foot soreness) is listed as ‘questionable.’ He often plays thru pain. If out, he joins Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala, both of whom are on scheduled rest nights. – 4:39 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Andrew Wiggins is questionable tonight vs Rockets with left foot soreness. Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala already out, resting on the second night of a back-to-back. Steph Curry, as expected, will play. – 4:35 PM
Matt Steinmetz @SteinmetzNBA
Klay Thompson is going to settle in, and ideally Wiggins and Poole figure it out with him. But right now Thompson is dribbling and shooting too much and it’s had ripple effect. – 4:31 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
If Russell Westbrook gets traded to Houston, this is how I *actually* think it would play out:
He agrees to stay away from the Rockets for the rest of the year. Rather than playing this season, he stays in LA with his family. Then they figure out a buyout in the offseason. – 4:23 PM

I have no idea if John Wall is still a good player, by the way. I thought there were semi-encouraging flashes in Houston but the numbers were mostly discouraging. I have no idea what this year off does to him. I have no idea how playing with LeBron affects him. He’s a mystery box – 4:17 PM
