Warriors Lose Without Curry, Kobe Shines In Boston, Groff Declares For Draft


The Golden State Warriors only had one loss coming into a game with the Dallas Mavericks, but unfortunately their reigning MVP Stephen Curry was ruled out for the game.  Could the Warriors win without Steph?  Unfortunately no.  The Mavericks destroyed the Warriors and easily handed them their second loss of the season.  Dallas 114, Golden State 91.

Kobe Bryant 2Elsewhere in the NBA, Kobe Bryant made his final trip to Boston.  He faced Boston in two finals (each team winning one).  Boston has disdain for Bryant, but also sincere respect.  In this final trip, Bryant led the Lakers to a surprise victory over the Celtics.  Bryant had his 173rd career double-double, and in the final minute of the game, the classy Celtics fans chanted “Kobe! Kobe!”.  It’s clear that the NBA is going to miss Kobe Bryant.  He was a spectacle in every city he visited during his career.  Lakers 112, Celtics 104.


In college football, University of California star quarterback Jared Goff, a junior with all the NFL physical specs, has decided he will forego his junior year and enter the NFL draft.  Goff had a statistically marvelous season with Cal, and led them to a win over Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl.  The pro scouts have been talking about Goff’s “special arm” all season, and now he will get a chance to show what he can do in the pros.  ESPN’s Todd McShay has Goff ranked as the 2nd best quarterback in the draft, behind Memphis’ Paxton Lynch, and there are several teams who would love access to his talents.
