Stephen Curry recorded 30 points (8-17 3pt FG) and 10 assists for the Warriors as they defeated the Rockets last December and he remains an influential player for the champions.

"Donte played I think the final 18 minutes of the game straight. His energy was infectious, he just plays so hard," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said about the team's new star Donte DiVincenzo.
"It's easy to see why our fans have fallen in love with him because of how hard he plays. He's fearless and I thought he set a great tone during that stretch. Donte was fantastic again.
"He's had such a great stretch now over the last six, eight weeks. He just competes. He's just a guard. He's not a point guard, not a two-guard. He's just a basketball player."
