Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA Biggest difference between the two Warriors-Suns games to me: GSW involved Ayton way less in Steph pick-and-rolls, choosing to instead induce switches with perimeter guys. Lot more of Steph vs. guys like Shamet, Crowder, Payne, CP3, etc.
Otherwise, Suns just ran out of gas – 10:11 AM

Joe Ingles @Joeingles7 ☕️☕️☕️ – 8:52 AM

Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire After a fiery start to the season, Steph Curry has been named the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Month for October-November. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2021/12/02/war…7:12 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba Stephen Curry on playing against Chris Paul: “It’s dope to see the evolution of both of our careers. The fact that we’re still in a situation where we’re playing meaningful games. It brings the best out of you for sure.” pic.twitter.com/eCzUOcMzKr2:42 AM

Kurt Helin @basketballtalk Warriors, Curry bounce back, snap Suns’ win streak at 18 nba.nbcsports.com/2021/12/04/war…2:01 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba Chris Paul on when he knew Steph Curry was different: “A long time ago. Steph went on a family vacation with my family to Orlando, so we could work out…It’s not just the shooting. It’s the handle…He just kept getting better and better. I’m not shocked.” – 1:57 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif Marcus Morris Sr. had made 7 three-pointers this season entering tonight’s game against the Lakers — when he made 6 of his 9 threes.

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson Chris Paul responded to a question on if Steph Curry had an impact on the 3-point revolution in the NBA and was puzzled by it at first before a “Hell yeah!”
Paul saw Trae Young in AAU shooting as he came across half court and said that’s all Steph. – 1:15 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU Ty Lue said that best way to get Marcus Morris in shape was moving him from 4 to the 3 🤣 – 12:51 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif The Clippers’ offense has gone through stages of heat checks tonight. Marcus Morris early, Hartenstein to start the fourth, and now Luke Kennard with two threes in the last two minutes for a 116-111 lead on the Lakers. – 12:21 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif The Lakers have not led tonight, but trail by only one with 1:45 to play. Their chance to take a lead was stopped by an offensive foul on Westbrook. – 12:16 AM
