Where do we start? Let’s just say “Stephen Curry can shoot the ball.”
Do we really need to say much else? Like, he set a NBA record by breaking one of his own records? Or he now has 3 of the top 5 slots for most 3-pointers in a season? Should we mention that out of the 8 3-pointers he made tonight every one of them felt like a difficult game-winner or a play of the day?
I guess we should also mention that the Warriors won the game and that the NBA record breaker who also won the NBA 3-Point contest this year also had 10 assists to go with his 45 points.
Last thing, in the 4th quarter – Curry shot and made 7 shots. Yes all 7 shots in the 4th quarter and he was just 2 shy of matching the Blazers 21 points in the 4th.
“I finally played a fourth quarter,” joked Curry. “So I wanted to get out there and make some plays.”
“We tried to mix up our coverages a little bit because he came out making shots from everywhere,” Lillard said. “It pretty much just didn’t matter. He made shots with a hand in his face, off balance, deep, everything. He just had it going.”
“He never says anything about it,” Kerr said of Curry competing for MVP, “but you better believe he wants it.”
And deserves it.
And just for the hell of it because it’s TBT let’s revisit this awesome pic.
