Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker, age 20, shows everybody what a big strong boy he is. If you were not watching the Phoenix Suns’ titanic tilt against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night — and, given that it was a matchup between teams with two of the three worst records in the NBA this season, that choice would not be unreasonable — you missed history.
The 49ers may want to give Stephen Curry a call, because I’m not sure Brian Hoyer can throw that pass. Curry showed a soft touch on a touchdown pass over a defender to the streaking Andre Iguodala, who had to finish with the reverse layup, a little no-look flip. It was vintage Warriors, a little playground in transition. The Warriors beat the Kings 114-100 behind 27 from Curry. With the win the Warriors are 2.5 games up on the Spurs for the best record in the West, but Golden State has a tough road back-to-back this week in Houston than San Antonio. Get at least a split there and the Warriors will be tough to catch.
