Boston Celtics v Golden State Warriors

Stephen Curry drains game winner to beat Celtics (VIDEO)


I’m feeling a little prophetic. It was late in the fourth quarter Friday night and Boston’s Jeff Green had just made a nice play, driving toward the rim and hitting the little five-foot running jumper to tie the game against Golden State at 97-97. But that left 11 seconds for the Warriors and I had a feeling.

Sure enough.

What I like best here is Golden State doesn’t just go 1-4 flat and iso Curry, who has a good defender on him in Avery Bradley. Instead they bring up David Lee early for a quick pick-and-roll to force a switch (late in games teams switch every P&R) and get a better matchup. In this case Kris Humphries switches out on Curry and he has to be back a little because he’s not quick enough to cut off Curry on the drive. So, Curry drains the long two right over the top of him.

Gerald Wallace tried a contested three as the clock expired, missed, and you have another dramatic Golden State win.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
