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. Stephen Curry broke Ray Allen‘s record last night in Golden State’s 11-point win over Portland, and while it took him longer than one quarter, as Jarrett Jack originally joked, the 6-3 guard still got it done.

Chicago got 19 points and 15 rebounds from Carlos Boozer to beat Washington by three. Atlanta had already lost to the Knicks, giving up 33 points to Chris Copeland. But it wouldn’t have mattered anyway — with the win, the Bulls are now the No. 5 seed and will start out on the road against Brooklyn while the Hawks travel to Indiana for the No. 3 vs. 6 matchup. The Clippers, because of a close win over Sacramento, will have homecourt advantage on Memphis in the first round. 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…
