The Tulsa men's basketball team plays Tuesday night at SMU.
On Tuesday morning, the Golden Hurricane held a shootaround, where the team Twitter account sent out the following message:
"We think @StephenCurry30 is good for the game of basketball. @warriors. #TulsaRISING," with an accompanying video of a player working on his ball-handling.
During the Warriors' Christmas Day matchup against the Cavaliers, Mark Jackson used some interesting words when discussing Steph Curry.
“To a degree, he's (Curry) hurt the game," Jackson declared during the broadcast. “And what I mean by that is I go into these high school gyms, I watch these kids and the first thing they do is run to the three-point line. You are not Steph Curry.
“Work on your other aspects of the game. People don't think that he's just a knock-down shooter. That's not why he's the MVP. He's a complete basketball player.”
On Saturday, Curry responded.
"I understand where he's coming from ... I wish he would have phrased it just a little bit differently. I think I'm trying to inspire people to see the game differently, in a positive, not so much ruining the game.
"I get what he was saying. There was a compliment in there, which is nice. Knowing him personally, I think that's what he meant ... it's all good."
On Monday night, Curry missed his first six shots. But he caught fire and dropped in 17 points over the final 3+ minutes of the first half.
He finished with 23 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists -- the sixth triple-double of his career.
