The Stephen Curry Contusion Game and TAKES

Stephen Curry fell over Trevor Ariza and the internet exploded into a scorching array of sentences formulated into opinions delving into medicine and finally, back to self-righteousness. My favorite. I am not a doctor. If I were a doctor, I would not be spending my precious free time watching basketball on a Monday night.

And yet, midway through the game after Stephen Curry had been upended by a Trevor Ariza pump-fake sending his head crashing into the...

Warriors Curry hurt in first half.

The Warriors worst nightmare wasn’t the score, even though they were blown out of the Toyota Center in this first half, trailing by as much as 23 points. Stephen Curry, the Warriors superstar and the man who has enthralled the sports world for most of the last season, went up to block a shot by Trevor Ariza on the defensive end, but he went over Ariza’s back, flipped head over heels and landed hard on the floor, under the Rockets basket. The medical staff gathered, along with Coach Steve Kerr. The raucous crowd in the Toyota Center remained hushed. With assistance he was helped off...

Trevor Ariza has been the Rockets' most vital player

Followed closely by any big man combination that's not Terrence Jones and Josh Smith.

That second fact is particularly distressing considering Dwight Howard -- the Rockets' defensive linchpin -- is questionable for Game 2...
