Curry's unlikely MVP numbers

Stephen Curry's 23.8 PPG average will be the lowest for an MVP winner since Steve Nash in 2005-06. He'll be the first MVP who didn't average either 24 PPG, 10 RPG or 10 APG since Karl Malone in the lockout-shortened '99 season.

Chris Paul questionable for Game 1

Clippers coach Doc Rivers told ESPN's Arash Markazi: "I know he had an MRI and that all came out pretty well. We'll wait until tomorrow to find out. You have to be careful. If there's any risk, he won't play, I can tell you that right now. I just don't know yet. We'll find out tomorrow."

Houston has a problem with picks

Most experts are predicting the Clippers to beat the Rockets in their second-round series. Houston GM Daryl Morey noticed, and he says his team is using this as motivation – not long after the Clippers did the same thing vs. the Spurs. Bulletin board material?

Game 1 storyline: 3-pointers

Memphis and Golden State are polar opposites when it comes to relying on 3's, and it showed in Game 1. The Warriors poured in 13 triples compared to Memphis' 3. Another way of looking at it: That's 30 more points on 3's for GS.
