Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Tuesday:
The Stephen Curry struggle. The Warriors beat the 76ers, 119-108, despite one of the worst shooting nights of Curry’s career. Curry was 7-23 overall and an NBA-record 0-11 from three-point range. That is the most attempts ever without making at least one, and it was even worse than that. Curry had two airballs in the first quarter alone.
The Mikael Granlund goal. The Wild and Kings went to overtime, tied 4-4. That’s when Granlund decided to take matters into his own hands. At the start of OT, Granlund beat the Kings’ entire defence and scored the game-winner just 12 seconds after the start of the overtime period.
The Danny Drinkwater goal. To say Leicester City has had a rough season would be an understatement. Just ten months after winning the Premier League, Leicester found themselves in the relegation zone and in danger of being demoted out of the league. But five days after sacking manager Claudio Ranieri, Leicester found a little bit of the old magic, beating Liverpool 3-1. The big goal came off the right boot of Drinkwater, whose first goal of the season was a gorgeous volley.
The Kyrie Irving clear-out bonus. Poor John Henson. Kyrie got away with a clear-out on this three-pointer, but nobody will remember that. They will just remember Henson going flying and Kyrie posing for the crowd while Henson struggles to get back to his feet.
