Golden State's rookie guard Stephen Curry will be heading to Dallas for the 3-Point Shootout with a hothand.

Impressive performance in the Warriors 132-102 blowout winagainst the L.A. Clippers on Wednesday: 36 points, 13 assists, 10rebounds. Plus, he goes 7-for-11 from3-point range.

Tucked away inside the stat line: He nailed a franchise record-tying five 3-pointers in the first quarter. Yes, Anthony Morrow should be in the competition, too. Butnot at Currys expense.Anyway, heard an interview with Curry and Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's Jaymee Sire andits clear Currys going to take this thing seriously. He hasnt practiced allthat much off the racks, but he sounds like hes comfortable doing it. If Curry is going to win it, hes going to have to shootbetter than Paul Pierce, Danilo Gallinari, DaeQuan Cook, Chauncey Billups andChanning Frye. Who do I think is going to win it? Well, Im not predicting,but I do remember an NBA front office personnel person saying that Gallinariwas the best shooter in the league. Well see.
