Five observations… – 3:44 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba Stephen Curry talked about what they need to do defensively to slow down the Phoenix Suns when they meet on Christmas day. AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Steph Curry on his ankle twist tonight: “First one I had all year. It’s reminding me it’s still there. But it’s strong. Bounced back. Able to play the rest of the game. Don’t feel anything. So I’m not worried about it at all.” AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba Ja Morant on the challenge of guarding Stephen Curry:
“The greatest shooter of all time. We know he’s going to make shots. You just got to make it very tough for him to get off. We had some mental lapse during the game, and he made us pay for it.” – 1:52 AM

Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1 So, after 10 consecutive DNP-CD (coach delusional), Kemba Walker has 94 points in last three games. Half-century between titles, anyone? – 1:29 AM

They got Curry’d by “one of the toughest covers in NBA history.” And there is little shame in that.… – 1:22 AM

Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers Howard, Ellington, Melo, Rondo, Jordan, Thomas, Jones (J), Jones (M), Huff: 31. Bates-Diop: 30. Take that, Kieta! BK – 1:10 AM

Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett “Greatest shooter of all time…We know he is going to make shots… We just have to make it tough for him to get it off…We had some mental lapses during the game and he made us pay for it.”

Ian Begley @IanBegley “We’ll change it, we’ll get there.”
Kemba Walker after scoring 44 points in NYK’s home loss to WAS. Remarkable night for Walker. The Soundview native, out of NYK’s rotation for 3 weeks, hit 7 of 14 3-point attempts. Knicks, though, fall to 6-11 at MSG: AM

Nick DePaula @NickDePaula Stephen Curry drops 46 in the “Elmo” Curry 9 Flow, one of his favorites from his @SesameStreet Pack.
“Elmo is always the first that comes to mind, just cause he’s always laughing, having a good time and annoyingly positive, which is awesome,” said @Stephen Curry AM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies Jenkins says that Draymond Green is tough to defend because of his playmaking skill. He also says that Curry is so elite as a shooter that despite good defensive effort Steph is “probably one of the toughest covers in NBA history…” – 12:40 AM
