While you're waiting for tonight's game to begin, a few links:
- Paul Tee at rival site Clips Nation describes why it's so hard to hate the Warriors even if you really think you should.
- Steph Curry is not only on track to be an All-Star starter, but he leads the Western Conference in early voting.
- Steph Curry is in a brand new State Farm ad with Chris Paul. My favorite part though (aside from WNBA star Sue Bird making an appearance): am I correct that Curry and Oakland's own Damian Lillard got into the elite National Bureau of Assists before Paul? So has State Farm settled the NBA's point guard hierarchy? Will Cliff be able to keep Chris from whining about this? These are the questions to ponder over tonight's egg nog, ladies and gentlemen.
- And just in case you missed it, Festus Ezeli is officially out for tonight's game.
