John Wall blocks Steph Curry and then a pissed off Curry got his revenge on the following play by throwing down a dunk and posterizing Garrett Temple! Not exactly, but that’s how you would think it happened by watching the above video that doesn’t show the time and score. For Wizards fans and upset Curry haters on the NBA youtube channel, here’s how it really happened.
Although Curry doesn’t dunk much in games, if you watch him before the games (who doesn’t?), you will often see him throwing down dunks. Before the Warriors win over the Wizards on Tuesday, Steph Curry got a little fancier than usual with a 360 off the bounce dunk!
Then midway through the first quarter, Curry had one of his game-high 5 steals and his layup rejected by a trailing John Wall – the first of his game-high 4 blocks.
5 minutes later, with John Wall on the bench, Curry got another steal and probably had a flashback of Wall, so he took it up stronger and ended up dunking with a trailing Garrett Temple on his back.
I’ve heard a few people say he “dunked on” Temple, I think “accidental poster” is a better description; Just like this throwback dunk by his Dad.
Then in the 3rd quarter, Wall got his 2nd chasedown block of the night on Curry and after a Klay Thompson miss, got the board and hit an 18 footer on the other end.
But in the end, it would be another victory for the Warriors as Curry outscored Wall 26-8. Curry also had 7 boards, 7 assists and 6 3-pointers while Wall had 5 boards, a game-high 11 assists and was 0 for 3 from 3.
