Steph Curry Set New Three Point Record In Game 2 Win

Published

on

In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Warriors needed a little help from JR Smith and overtime to get the win. Game 2 was a different story with Steph Curry breaking the single-game record for the most three-pointers.

Curry finished with 33 points on 11-of-26 shooting while hitting 9 of 17 3-pointers and leading the Dubs to a 122-103 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“He was tremendous,” said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. “You know, nine threes, and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one. But yeah, he was fantastic.”

Curry beat a record previously set by former Celtics player Ray Allen who made eight 3-pointers against the Lakers in Game 2 of the 2010 Finals between Boston and Los Angeles. “It’s a pretty cool deal to accomplish knowing who’s held the record.”

“Every shot that he takes, he has the business of making them,” LeBron James said. “That’s what he does. So we shouldn’t be surprised or deflated at it. Take the ball out, move it forward and try to execute on the other end.”

Game 3 will be in Cleveland on Wednesday Night.

Paul George Explains Why You Need A Super Team To Win

Published

on

The arms race to form a super team is the new way of the NBA. GMs and players are all looking at the landscape looking for the best options to form up like Voltron.

In a new Washington Post with Tim Bontemps, Oklahoma City forward Paul George spoke about why it’s hard to win a championship with one star player.

“No team has won [a title] where one single guy was the lone star and it was their team. It’s not that era. I’m not sure how the veterans, the legends, don’t understand that part. It’s a different game now. For those guys to chime in and say we’re not built the same…I never understood that, because who would we be fooling if we went out alone and tried to go up against the Warriors? The best guy in our league right now couldn’t do it. [LeBron James] got swept [in the 2018 Finals]. So that just goes to show you at this point what it takes to win. Because you need guys that are alike talent-wise and skill set-wise to win championships.”

The five-time NBA All-Star has decided to stay in OKC with Russell Westbrook. George signed a four-year $137 million dollar deal according to sources.

DeMarcus Cousins Shows Off His Steph Curry Impression

Published

DeMarcus Cousins will be out for the first half of the season recovering from his Achilles injury. Cousins signed a one-year with the Warriors and is already practicing shooting like Steph Curry.

A video was posted of Boogie draining 3 points in shoots in practice.

When the Associated Press (h/t USA Today) asked him about the signing, Curry said Cousins should make the Dubs more versatile:

“It’s interesting because nobody going into free agency thought about DeMarcus as an option, then all of a sudden he found his way onto our team. So for us to have a new dynamic, a new look, whenever he’s fully healthy it should be amazing. I think we got better. Obviously we lost some pieces that were very vital to us winning a championship but you’ve got to evolve, you’ve got to find different things to focus on as you’re trying to repeat, so it should be exciting.”

Cousins ended the year with a 37% three-point percentage. That number can go up with the spacing on the floor the Warriors can create.

The Miami Hurricanes Will Debut New Environmental Uniforms For LSU Season Opener

Published

on

Last year the Miami Hurricanes brought the swag back to college football with the Turnover Chain. Now it seems that school is ready to make an impact outside of the football with their new uniforms.

The U will debut the first-ever uniforms made with repurposed and upcycled materials. Creating a unique look for the Canes, the Miami x Parley A1 uniform features “The U’s” home jersey orange colorway that is accompanied by accents that are an ode to the cause to end plastic pollution of the oceans. The jersey sleeve caps and the stripes white pants feature a wave print that fuses Miami’s signature dark green with the EQT green colorway that adidas x Parley has become synonymous with.

“Our players and staff are excited to wear the new Adidas Parley jerseys and gear for our season opener. We’re also excited that Adidas and Parley are teaming up with UM to help promote sustainability around the world,” head football coach Mark Richt said. “Community service has always been an integral part of our football program, and this partnership with Adidas and Parley helps us continue those efforts.”

Starting August 27, the Miami x Parley A1 uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science to launch a fund for educational research.

The Hurricanes will wear the uniforms for their season opener against Louisiana State University at the 2018 AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sept. 2.
