Last night's stage belonged to Stephen Curry, unfortunately our guy Anthony Davis happened to be part of the collateral damage of Curry's 40 points, 9 assist, 5 rebound night. Curry also capped off a 20-point comeback by making one of the most improbable shots you will ever see. On the biggest stage, against a future MVP, Curry leaned back and hoisted a final shot over the redwood tree that is Anthony Davis.
The Warriors would go on to win the game in overtime and take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series. Curry and the Warriors will win this battle against Davis and his crew, but I imagine Davis will be on the winning end of these sooner than later. Also, why did Monty Williams not foul?

Monty Williams will be a perfect replacement for Johnny Jones at LSU after next yr. Keeps their tradition of coaches doing less with more.— Scott Charlton (@Scott_Charlton) April 24, 2015
- The Saturday Edge partnered with us to ask about Kentucky Football for 2015, Better, Worse, or about the same? The article is in the tweet below.
- The Wildcats have fully concluded spring practice and Mark Stoops was very happy with the results. For me, the best parts about it were Coach Stoops saying that they were very consistent all spring and that routine plays finally look routine
- Today is decision day for target Malik Newman, he will be deciding at 1:00 PM eastern today. Popular opinion has him picking Mississippi State over Kentucky but you can never count out Coach Calipari (just ask Terrence Jones). A Sea of Blue will have a story soon after the decision
- Jamal Murray will not visit Kentucky this weekend, Murray is a 2016 target that is likely to reclassify to 2015 and would provide a HUGE boost to the incoming class. The reason for Murray not coming is simply that he wants to take a step back and make sure he is doing the right things. Honestly though, this is not a bad sign for BBN, do we really need him to see the campus to decide he wants to play at UK? Kyle Wiltjer did not need to come in order to commit.
