Now that the Los Angeles Lakers have been eliminated from the playoffs, Metta World Peace has spent a lot of time on Twitter providing analysis of the remaining NBA teams and players. On Wednesday night, World Peace made it a point to praise Stephen Curry following Curry’s 22-point performance in the Golden State Warriors’ Game 2 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
In fact, MWP even decided to give Curry a new nickname.
“I think Steve Curry is Top 10 in the NBA,” he wrote. “If he works on his defense, he will be MVP next year. LeBron (James) gets MVP because he is the best player on the best team. If Golden State improves and wins, Curry is a potential MVP for 2014.”
World Peace actually made some very solid points. Curry has been lighting up the playoffs. He led the Warriors to a series win over the Denver Nuggets by dropping 24.3 points per game. He scored a whopping 44 in a Game 1 loss to the Spurs and 22 on Wednesday night. And he’s only 25. I don’t know about 2014 MVP, but he’s cer...

To the dismay of Warriors fans everywhere, Stephen curry re-rolled his highly problematic left ankle in tonight’s game three Warriors-Spurs matchup
This said, please take a solemn moment to witness what will now be referred to as “the ankle roll heard ’round the world” in the following clip, as the injury-ridden guard Stephen Curry trips over himself with 4-something minutes...
Tweet In game four against the Denver Nuggets, Stephen Curry absolutely caught fire in the third quarter for the Golden State Warriors, scoring 22 points in that quarter. Curry was at it again in game one against the San Antonio Spurs, once again dropping 22 in the third quarter and scoring or assisting on 30 [...]
Heading into the final nine minutes of Game 1 of the second round playoff match-up between the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs, it was the Warriors, not the heavily favored Spurs, that appeared to be in control in their playoff destiny.
Lead by Stephen Curry’s 22-point third quarter, the Warriors had built a 16 point lead and looked quicker, fresher and hungrier...
It was all Golden State Warriors last night in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinals match-up with the San Antonio Spurs. Klay Thompson led the way with an offensive explosion alongside shooting assasin Steph Curry. Prior to the game, the Spurs said they weren’t going to change their approach to guarding Curry, which didn’t seem like a good idea. Would it even matter...
So that was kind of weird what happened in Game 1. It's not every day you see a 16-point deficit turn in to a double overtime victory.
Still, that happened and while there wasn't one silver bullet that sparked the comeback, it did help that Stephen Curry stopped making shots in the final six minutes of the fourth quarter.
Part of Curry's woes had to do with...
Stephen Curry had a noticeably un-Stephen Curry game in Game 2 against the Spurs Wednesday night. There was no customary third quarter explosion, and with 7-of-20 shooting he looked mortal compared to the ridiculous precedent he’s set for himself. But there to pick up the slack was Klay Thompson, who poured in a career-high 34 points and 14 rebounds and a Warriors playoff record...
After losing home-court advantage in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs on Wednesday, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker had an interesting comment regarding the series between the Spurs and Golden State Warriors.
“If you want to win in the playoffs,” said Parker after game two, “you have to win on the road.”
Parker and the Spurs did just that...
The last time the Golden State Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs was way back in 1997; a streak that spanned 30 games. Wednesday night that streak came to an end. Klay Thompson scored 34--29 of them in the first half--and Stephen Curry chipped in another 22 to lead the Warriors to a 100-91 victory over the Spurs.
Once again it looked like the Spurs were going to make a...
The San Antonio Spurs said they were going to treat the opener of the Western Conference semifinals as a loss rather than the historic victory it was.
They don't have to pretend they lost to the Golden State Warriors at home anymore.
Klay Thompson had a career-high 34 points and 14 rebounds, Stephen Curry added 22 points and Golden State withstood another furious rally by the...

--by Jose Grijalva

The confident aura emanating from the Golden State Warriors right now might be the only thing brighter than those yellow shirts every home fan is expected to be wearing again for Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at ear-piercing Oracle Arena.
The Warriors have outshot, outrebounded and outhustled the Spurs through the first two games of their Western Conference...
Last night's Spurs-Warriors Semifinal Game 1 was nothing short of exhilarating.
The Spurs came back from an 18-point deficit to win in double-overtime 129-27 and provided NBA fans with what can only be described as an instant classic which will be long remembered for Manu Ginobili's clutch game-winning shot, Stephen Curry's monster third quarter scoring barrage, and...
