Flex on 'em, Steph.
Before Warriors superstar Steph Curry wound up hitting the game-winning layup Sunday night against the Clippers, he was busy once again irritating Patrick Beverley. After the victory, he had even more fun explaining the situation.
"It was a misinterpretation of what I was doing," Curry said to the media. "I flex as a joke all the time. Obviously I have nothing really to work with. I was celebrating getting an offense rebound, which I rarely get, I looked down at the ground and he just happened to be there."

Early in the second quarter of the Warriors' 129-127 win, Curry outmuscled three Clippers to grab an offensive rebound. He then quickly flexed, prompting an unhappy reaction from Beverley.

"I told Pat, 'You gotta do what you gotta do if you felt that was directed at you, but it wasn't.' But it is what it is," Curry said.
The two both received technical fouls for the brief incident.
