Steve Kerr juggles Warriors’ deep roster

LOS ANGELES — In an alternate universe, Patrick McCaw is entering his senior season at UNLV. He shepherds a young team, impresses NBA scouts with his old-school game and hopes to get drafted in June.

Warriors deliver most complete game of season in rout of Clippers

LOS ANGELES — In the waning seconds of the third quarter, Stephen Curry crossed midcourt, twice laced the ball between his legs, dribbled behind his back and, at the top of the three-point arc, drained a 26-footer as time expired.
