Stephen Curry's Numbers Are As Unlikely And Wonderful As Stephen Curry

If you want to understand the unique appeal of someone like Stephen Curry—a player on whom both the basketball romantics and the quants agree, a guy who represents a rare intersection of narrative and analytics—there is no better place to start. » 10/23/13 2:50pm 10/23/13 2:50pm

Klay Thompson Does A Damn Good Steph Curry Impersonation

Game 2 goes to Golden State, on the backs of an unconscious Klay Thompson and some crucial makes from Steph Curry. If not for a once-in-a-decade San Antonio comeback, they would be up 2-0. They should be. But the what-ifs don't matter if one what-if is legit—if the Warriors, on the strength of their fearsome backcourt, … » 5/09/13 9:08am 5/09/13 9:08am

That Warriors-Spurs Game Was Bonkers

Manu Ginobili hit the game-winning shot with 1.2 seconds left in double-overtime to put a bow on an absolutely incredible game. With less than four minutes left in regulation Klay Thompson fouled out with the Warriors up 104-88. Chris Webber said something along the lines of "luckily, they don't need him anymore." » 5/07/13 1:28am 5/07/13 1:28am

Steph Curry Goes At It With A Fan, As Warriors-Nuggets Gets Dirty

In Game 5, the Nuggets held off a Warriors rally to stay alive. Steph Curry got into it with a Denver fan. Mark Jackson accused the Nuggets of intentionally trying to hurt Curry.

Steph Curry Is Still A Folk Hero

As brilliant as Steph Curry's performance in Game 2 of the Warriors' first-round series against the Nuggets was, it came with the distinct air of being a precursor to something bigger. He had arrived on the big stage and given us a glimpse of what he was capable of before leaving us to wonder simply: What would he do… » 4/29/13 11:56am 4/29/13 11:56am

Stephen Curry Finally Makes His Playoff Splash

Last night's Warriors-Nuggets game ended the way you'd expect it to end when the Nuggets play atrocious defense and the Warriors shoot somewhere around 125 percent from the floor. But the bigger factor–bless his heart and his shaky ankles–was Stephen Curry finally getting a chance to show us what he's made of on a big… » 4/24/13 10:45am 4/24/13 10:45am

Steph Curry Found His Swagger

This is what Steph Curry was put on Earth to do: shoot. We've seen him do magic on the floor this year, from this frankly unfair bounce pass to a pair of filthy crossovers just two nights ago. But he's a pure shooter, and for 48 minutes at MSG—you don't take out a hand that hot—he shot. Pure. » 2/28/13 8:48am 2/28/13 8:48am

Stephen Curry Was Out Of His Mind Tonight

Curry had 38 points and two filthy crossovers last night and he went and topped himself tonight. In 48 minutes on a quick turnaround, Curry finished with 54 points and shot 11-13 from behind the arc. The Knicks won 109-105, but it felt like they were fighting a losing battle of catch-up with him. » 2/27/13 11:50pm 2/27/13 11:50pm

Stephen Curry Pulls Off Two Sublime Crossovers, Is Brilliant

With respect to the shoving party that spilled into the first row, the most entertaining thing about last night's Warriors-Pacers game was Stephen Curry crossing up his opponents with extreme prejudice. His first victim was George Hill, whose valiant attempt to play good transition defense ended with him falling onto… » 2/27/13 10:05am 2/27/13 10:05am
