Wednesday’s game: What to watch for
The Warriors and Jazz could meet in the first round of the playoffs. The Warriors have a three-game lead over San Antonio atop the Western Conference, and Utah is two games behind Houston for the conference’s eighth postseason berth.
Utah scored 106 points in its win at New Orleans on Saturday. The Jazz averaged 90.2 points during a five-game skid from Feb. 25 to Friday.
On Monday, Stephen Curry became the first player to make 300 three-pointers in a season. He has made 1,120 during the past four seasons — each season ranking among the NBA’s top six of all time.
Curry’s father, Dell, was selected No. 15 overall by Utah in 1986. He averaged 4.9 points in 9.5 minutes per game before being traded to Cleveland in 1987.
