Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks
Warriors guard Stephen Curry hit an off-balance, game-winning jumper with 0.1 seconds remaining in overtime to defeat the Mavericks last night, then celebrated like a champ. After the shot went in, Curry sprinted to the opposite baseline, pounded his chest and repeatedly yelled to the sellout crowd in Dallas, "We out." It was not the Capri Sun Roarin' Butt Face Jam, of course, but it was a good celebration nonetheless.
A's reliever Sean Doolittle pulled off an effective prank by pretending to shave off his trademark beard. Bonus points to our good friend Jimmy for taking the bait. The Colorado Rapids got fans talking with their new fringed throwback uniforms, which I think are phenomenal but turned out to be a ruse. Extra Mustard has the lowdown on 11 fantastic sports pranks.

Ever wonder who George Karl's favorite rapper is? Me neither, but the veteran coach named his three favorites (Gucci Mane, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur) during an appearance on ESPN last night. The genre of rap barely exisited in 1972, when veteran SI photographer Walter Iooss snapped this shot of Karl during a North Carolina-Wake Forest game.
