Stephen Curry

On a day that saw the last of Rasheed Wallace, as well as the NBA’s regular season, we saw the first of something else: the first NBA player to hit 270 three-pointers in one season.

Chris Paul was a monster, scoring 25 points and dishing 11 assists, while Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes combined for 36 points off the bench.

By the way, the team’s playoff theme song is “All Gold Everything” by Trinidad James. Barnes proclaims he’s the team DJ, and says to get himself fired up, he listens to 2Pac. Nothing wrong with that — he’s from Cali and ‘Pac was super emotional. We definitely like Barnes’ taste in music better than Austin Daye, who told us he listens to Justin Timberlake‘s “Suit & Tie.” “Can’t wait ’til I get you on the floor good-looking” isn’t exactly riding music. … Keep reading to hear how the NBA scoring race ended…
