Warriors' Stephen Curry says he's ready to go physically for Game 3

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Shooting after practice without a sleeve, Stephen Curry revealed how there was no longer visible swelling on his right elbow.

The Warriors guard said Saturday on the eve of Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, that he was ready to go.

"I'll be fine," Curry said. "I've got stuff to deal with, but so does everybody else."

Three days after falling and hitting a metal platform in the seating area of Oracle Arena in Game 2 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Curry was not wearing the sleeve.

He had worn it the previous day while shooting after practice, explaining that he used it for compression so he could shoot without having any swelling.

A knot that Curry had described as a tennis ball had formed over the elbow immediately after the trauma, but the swelling went down without it having to be drained.

  • Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka says the Thunder must play with more aggression at the start of the game a day after fellow big man Enes Kanter said the team needed to punish the Warriors.

    "They are playing tougher than us," Ibaka said, explaining how the Warriors got to more 50-50 balls in Game 2. "You know, they were more aggressive than us, so I think that's why.

    Curry said the Warriors were simply playing more like themselves in Game 2.

    "We have to play our pace and our intensity and defensively play with a confidence and IQ," he said. "So toughness and physicality and all that comes into play."

  • Warriors players expressed joy on Twitter after ESPN aired a piece on longtime equipment manager Eric Housen.

    Housen has been in the Warriors organization for 29 seasons, and he got his start as a ball boy when he was 12 years old. Now as the director of team services, he also coordinates travel arrangements and meals for the team.

    "Makes me so happy to see the story on E," Warriors center Festus Ezeli wrote. "He does so much for us. I've NEVER EVER seen someone so committed to his job and to a franchise."

    Having done the dirty work for the Warriors through the years, former players David Lee, Jarrett Jack and Justin Holiday were among those to tweet about the SportsCenter piece.

    "It was just well-deserved recognition," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "He does everything for us, and his attention to detail is second to none. It's incredible the job Eric does. So I was thrilled to see him get the notoriety that normally would never come his way or any equipment manager's way."

  • Brian Shaw and the Lakers are close to an agreement on a deal for him to become Luke Walton's lead assistant coach, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Shaw's experience as a head coach, an assistant coach and as a championship player were the primary reasons why Walton wanted him on his staff, according to several NBA officials who are not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Walton will continue in his role as Warriors assistant coach through the postseason.
