Golden State announced starting center Andrew Bogut will not return after he sprained his left ankle. Yes, the same ankle that casued him to miss 38 games between November and January.
He is not receiving X-rays, but according to a team official he apparently sprained the ankle in the last game. After trying to play on it the first 9 minutes, 5 seconds, he was shut down for the night.
This TNT graphic puts into perspective Stephen Curry’s 3-point prowess.
He entered tonight having played 254 games and made 621 3-pointers. That’s 214 more than Ray Allen did through the same number of games, 299 more than Reggie Miller hit.
Curry entered tonight’s game against Oklahoma City averaging 2.44 3-pointers per game for his career. That rate is higher than the career rate of Ray Allen (2.33) and Reggie Miller (1.84).
Curry, who turned 25 last month, made a bit of history Thursday night. He knocked down two 3-pointers in the first half. That puts him at 251 for the season. He’s now the youngest player ever to make 250 3-pointers in a season (previously Dennis Scott at 27).
