Darnold is fourth in the NCAA with 13 interceptions this season and first in fumbles with eight. He has a great arm, a big body, good mobility and a quicker release than he gets credit for, but like Josh Rosen he needs to cut down on the mistakes to be as good as he can be.
Despite that, throws like the one he made on the run to his left truly show what he could be if he plays within himself. He finished 26 of 45 for 356 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.
After missing the past 11 games for the Golden State Warriors with a right ankle sprain, Stephen Curry returned in emphatic fashion Saturday night.
The two-time NBA MVP exploded for 38 points, shot 13-for-17 from the floor and nailed a season-high 10 of 13 3-pointers in 26 minutes to guide the Warriors to a 141-128 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.
I just wanted that feeling again, Curry said. It was pretty special.
It felt like it was the first day of school again.
It was Curry’s ninth 30-point game of the season, and his 10 treys were the highest total for any NBA player this season. Although it was nearly a month since he last played, he didn’t miss a beat.
Draymond Green picked up his ninth and 10th technical fouls of the season Saturday night, leading to his second ejection from the Warriors’ win against Memphis.
I was just happy to be back out there with my guys, he said. You sit and watch for 11 games, you just wonder what it’s going to be like to get back out there, and I finally got that opportunity. I really didn’t know what to expect. I just wanted to get some good reps, get up and down, see how my wind was and, surprisingly, I think my body felt way better than I expected.
