Stephen Curry has been a human fireball this season, and on Monday night he went off again, dropping 30 points in just 28 minutes to lift the Warriors over the Grizzlies in a total rout.
Curry now has three 20-point quarters in games so far this season. The rest of the league has one, with C.J. McCollum of the Blazers getting the honor.
This Warriors team is unfair.
Jay Z’s music streaming service TIDAL is expanding its content beyond just music, according to exclusive reports on Variety.
Today (November 3), a new show titled “No Small Talk” is set to premiere on the service. The comedy, which will initially include five, 25-30 minute episodes, is hosted by DJ Cipha Sounds, who himself is signed to the management arm of Jay Z’s Roc Nation. Each episode is set to detail the lives of three burgeoning comedians performing at Manhattan’s Comedy Cellar.
“I didn’t want it to feel polished like the standup specials you see on TV,” Cipha Sounds says. “My goal is to help new guys get known, like Def Comedy Jam set up a lot of people’s careers.”
Elsewhere, TIDAL has ordered the second season of “Money & Violence,” an urban drama based on the lives of a group of thieves and drug dealers in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The second season, which is scheduled to premiere in January, is set to be comprised of 12 episodes and will be available exclusively on TIDAL for one week prior to wider distribution, Variety reports.
This change in strategy is part of TIDAL’s next step forward to increase value to its subscribers, Tim Riley, TIDAL’s Senior VP of Artist and Label Relations, said.
“If someone is paying for Tidal, we want that to be the best experience they can have,” Riley said.

Arsenal aim to complete part two of what would be an incredible Champions League revival at Bayern Munich’s expense when they travel to the Allianz Arena for group-stage match-day four.
We are backing Arsenal/Draw in the double chance market – get 11/5 at bet365
The Gunners looked dead and buried in terms of their qualification hopes after back-to-back defeats against Dinamo Zagreb (away) and Olympiakos (home) left them stranded on zero points at the bottom of the Group F table.
But now they are right back in contention after pulling off a 2-0 triumph at home to Bayern who, apart from losing the German Super Cup, had a 100% record this season across every other match they had played.
With Olympiakos winning in Zagreb and red-hot favourites to do likewise in the home leg of that ‘double header’, it means the pressure is still very much on Arsenal to carve out a positive result on their trip to Germany – and especially because they still have to go to Greece themselves.
However, there is a precedent because Arsene Wenger’s side looked to have an impossible task in the last 16 of this competition in 2013, trailing 3-1 from the first game as they went to Munich, and a 2-0 success there meant they were only eliminated on away goals.

They also had a two-goal deficit to try and overcome 12 months later after being beaten 2-0 at the Emirates and while that time they could only draw 1-1, it was another result that will offer encouragement for Wednesday.
Having shown themselves to be on a par at least with the best teams in England recently, Arsenal should not have too much of an inferiority complex when they take on Bayern and the goals from Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil that sealed their victory two weeks ago proved that.
Of more concern will be the injuries that have started to mount up and the loss of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain until after the next international break, both being injured in the Capital One Cup loss to Sheffield Wednesday, is a significant double blow.
Bayern’s loss in north London showed they cannot afford to be complacent where their own qualification prospects are concerned, but we think there is the distinct possibility that Olympiakos could be topping this pool heading into match day five if Arsenal can again take points off the joint favourites to lift the trophy.

The art of the deal in action
Donald Trump’s campaign will negotiate directly with television networks over upcoming debate formats, despite a letter circulated late Sunday so that the candidates could make collective demands.
The world’s biggest videogame company and mobile game publisher are coming together.
Activision Blizzard will acquire King Digital Entertainment for $5.9 billion, or all shares for $18 cash per share. The deal extends the purview of a company primarily associated with creating games like “Call of Duty” for consoles like Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s Playstation into a smartphone market that is growing at a much faster rate by all estimates. King is the company behind the hugely popular “Candy Crush Saga.”
“The combined revenues and profits solidify our position as the largest, most profitable standalone company in interactive entertainment,” said Activision CEO Bobby Kotick in a statement. “With a combined global network of more than half a billion monthly active users, our potential to reach audiences around the world on the device of their choosing enables us to deliver great games to even bigger audiences than ever before.”
“We will combine our expertise in mobile and free-to-play with Activision Blizzard’s world-class brands and proven track record of building and sustaining the most successful franchises, to bring the best games in the world to millions of players worldwide,”said King CEO Riccardo Zacconi in a statement.
The purchase is subject to approval by the Irish High Court, but is projected to be completed by the spring of 2016.
