Steph Curry charged up his own legend again in Oklahoma City Saturday night as the Warriors, who go down but never out of games, used some unlikely moments to rip victory out of the clutches of the OKC Thunder. Curry’s shooting was stellar as usual. So great that no story bothers to mention Klay Thompson’s quiet 32 points including a pivotal late dagger from the corner (on a Curry assist.)
Kevin Durant had a great game, yet Durant’s nightmare sequence at the end of regulation opened the door for the Warriors. It took Durant just five seconds to throw the ball away (where’s the timeout, wonders Scott Brooks?) and then foul Andre Iguodala with time expiring — allowing the steel-nerved AI to bang down two free throws and push the game to OT. Curry hit the game winner five minutes later, from about 35 feet, making it 121-118 with Curry notching 46. LeBron James, watching somewhere, said:
@StephenCurry30 needs to stop it man!! He’s ridiculous man! Never before seen someone like him in the history of ball!
