Watch Steph Curry, Dell jump into Lake Tahoe after 2020 ACC tournament

Watch Steph Curry, Dell jump into Lake Tahoe after 2020 ACC tournament

Splash!

Steph and Dell Curry continued their tradition Sunday of jumping into Lake Tahoe after the American Century Championship golf tournament.

But this time, they had a few high-profile companions: Boxer Canelo Alvarez and former tennis star -- and 2020 ACC winner -- Mardy Fish.

On Friday, the Currys revealed the bet between them was that the loser would have to jump into the lake.

While Steph finished with a higher score (56 points in the Stableford scoring system) than Dell (50 points), the younger Curry still decided to take a dip in the pristine water. Fish won the tournament with a score of 76.

Steph put together the best round of any golfer on Sunday, finishing with 26 points, five more than Fish and former MLB pitcher John Smoltz.

Towards the end of the round, Curry nearly holed in an incredible shot from the fringe. The ball lipped out and Curry did a few push-ups as punishment.

Each of the two days of the tournament, Steph wore shoes to shed light on racial and social injustices. On Friday, he donned shoes honoring Breonna Taylor, who was killed in March by Louisville police executing a search warrant. He will be donating those shoes to Black Lives Matter so that they can be auctioned off for charity. A day later, he paid tribute to four African American golf pioneers.

With the Warriors' season over, and the 2020-21 season not starting for several months, it was good to see Steph having fun this weekend while also using his platform to make a difference.

Damian Lillard matches Steph Curry in impressive 3-point shooting stat

Damian Lillard matches Steph Curry in impressive 3-point shooting stat

There has been an abundance of comparisons between Steph Curry and Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard as of late, most of which are prisoner-of-the-moment takes based in ignorance.

Yes, Lillard has been absolutely incredible during the NBA restart in leading the Trail Blazers to the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

No, he has not surpassed Curry as the best point guard in the game.

That said, Lillard arguably is closing the gap. And now, he has done something that no player other than Curry has accomplished in NBA history.

Lillard ended the regular season Thursday having shot 40.1 percent from 3-point range on 10.1 3-point attempts per game, becoming just the second player in league history to post that kind of efficiency on such high volume. Curry, of course, is the other, and he has done it twice.

[RUNNIN' PLAYS PODCAST: Listen to the latest episode]

In his unanimous MVP season in 2015-16, Curry shot a ridiculous 45.4 percent from long distance on 11.2 3-point attempts per game. Then, in 2018-19, he made 43.7 percent of his 11.7 3-point attempts per contest.

And he just barely missed accomplishing the feat a third time.

In 2016-17, Curry shot 41.1 percent from 3-point land, but didn't attempt enough 3s to qualify.

He literally was one attempt short.

So, technically, Lillard will only have to do it once more to match Curry. 

That is, unless Curry reminds everyone next season why he's the greatest shooter in NBA history.

Damian Lillard, Oakland native, gets Twitter shoutout from Raiders

Damian Lillard, Oakland native, gets Twitter shoutout from Raiders

The Portland Trail Blazers outlasted the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night to earn a spot in the Western Conference play-in tournament.

Shortly thereafter, the Las Vegas Raiders showed Oakland native Damian Lillard some love on Twitter.

The shoutout was much deserved, as Dame averaged 51.3 points and 9.0 assists over the Blazers' final three seeding games, while shooting better than 56 percent overall and nearly 49 percent from deep (on 14.3 attempts).

Those numbers never will seem real.

Although Lillard let it be known years back that he was not happy with the Raiders for leaving Oakland, he still roots for the Silver and Black.

Dame -- who went to Oakland High School his junior and senior years -- also made it clear last November he did not support the Warriors moving from Oakland to San Francisco.

The five-time NBA All-Star will be back in action Saturday at 11:30 a.m. PT, as the No. 8 seed Blazers face off against the No. 9 seed Memphis Grizzlies.

If the Blazers win, they advance to the first round of the playoffs to take on Los Angeles Lakers. If the Grizzlies win, then Memphis and Portland will do battle again on Sunday to determine who will play the Lakers.
