Stephen Curry. For the Win!

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.

April Fool's Leftovers

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.

Worst Seats in the House

Dallas' AT&T Stadium is hosting the Final Four this weekend with more than 80,000 fans expected at the games. If you have tickets, I hope your view is better than the one from these seats.

Lovely Lady Of The Day

Victoria Justice wore this dress to the Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday. A wardrobe malfunction may or may not have happened. Either way, Justice earns today's LLOD honors.

Worth a Shot

Eagles superfans Thomas Froschle and Maryanne Goslee invited Chip Kelly to their May 10th wedding and received a courteous RSVP from the Eagles coach. (Spoiler Alert: He can't make it)

A Man and His Dog

It has been a rough couple weeks for Paul George. He may or may not have been catfished, and the Pacers have lost three straight and are 12-11 since the all-star break. On the bright side, his dog Ace still believes in him.

From the SI Vault

George Karl :: Walter IoossJr./SI George Karl :: Walter IoossJr./SI

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. For more classic sports photos, visit the SI Vault on Twitter. While you’re there, follow me on Twitter.
