NBA – Stephen Curry explains cheer and addresses rivalry with Dillon Brooks

“Home Alone is my favorite movie,” Curry said on NBC Sports after the game. “I used it to imitate Macaulay Culkin walking around the house,” the 35-year-old continued. “I have no idea why I did that. You know me, I don’t study anything beforehand. I just have fun and want to put on a show.”

Curry unpacked the “Macauley Culkin” in the fourth quarter in Houston after the point guard sank his fourth three-pointer in a row against Dillon Brooks, creating a personal 12-2 run that put Golden State on the road to victory in the difficult away game.

Curry made defensive specialist Brooks look very old. After a crossover, the guard created space and when the Rockets defender tried to block the throw, Curry let Brooks get out again, this time with a shot fake and then coldly converted the three-pointer – including new celebrations.

But Curry didn’t want to see this as a tip against Brooks. “We know him and we know his reputation, but that doesn’t matter to me. Of course he talked a lot and we have a history with him, but at the end of the day I just want to play basketball. The result speaks for itself .”

However, Curry only got rolling in the fourth quarter; in the first 36 minutes, the All-Star only shot at the basket eight times and only had two field goals to his credit. Thanks to 14 points in the final section, the statline was commensurate with 24 points (6/14 3P), 7 rebounds and 6 assists.

NBA – Chris Paul accepts bench role with the Warriors

The other bigger storyline of the day was, of course, Chris Paul coming off the bench for the first time in his NBA career in over 1,300 games. But the 38-year-old didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. “I want to help the team win games,” CP3 stated matter-of-factly. “I have the chance to be in this league for a long time and things change over the years. Things are different here now and I accept that,” Paul continued.

Despite his bench role, CP3 played 27 minutes and was +22 in that span. The box score also recorded 8 points (3/8 FG) and 7 assists. “It felt different, but at the end of the day it’s just basketball,” said Paul, who received high praise from coach Steve Kerr. “It’s so important that Chris accepts this role. He didn’t turn it into a circus and just nodded. When a great player like him makes a sacrifice like that, it’s a message to the entire team.”

NBA – Draymond Green critical after comeback for the Warriors

The reason for Paul’s bench role, which Kerr says he will also assume in the upcoming game in New Orleans, is the return of Draymond Green, who made his season debut after injuring his ankle in preseason. According to his own statement, the 33-year-old still had problems; in 21 minutes he had 4 points and 5 assists.

“I felt terrible in the first half,” Green said. “The game was way too fast for me, but after the change it got better.” By halftime, Green had only taken one shot in 9 minutes, but had picked up 3 fouls and 3 turnovers.

After the opening defeat against Phoenix, the Warriors are now 2-1, including the two away wins in Sacramento and Houston, after they had such a difficult time abroad last year. Next night we’ll continue in New Orleans before heading back on the road after a home game against Sacramento.
