Steph Curry was at it again last night, leading the Golden State Warriors to a comeback win over the Dallas Mavericks with a big 4th quarter, including the game winner with just over a second remaining. We also saw Doc Rivers’ emotional return to Boston, the Pelicans outlast the Pistons in an overtime duel, another blowout loss for the Bucks, this time at the hands of the Spurs, and a brutal match-up between the Knicks and Bulls. Tonight there are just two games on the schedule (both on TNT), including what should be an awesome game between the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers. As always, we’re here with some words for you to read, so check out today’s suggested basketball readings from across the web.
