As the Golden State Warriors proved their superiority over the Los Angeles Clippers for the third time this season, winning 106-99, Stephen Curry was looking to show Chris Paul that he's not the only flashy point guard in California.
Over the course of the game, Curry was completely on point, but even more so in the fourth quarter when the game was on the line.
Not only did he drain four huge three-pointers throughout the quarter, he was spitting hot fire with his passing game.
While Jarrett Jack took the point for the majority of the game as the Warriors ran them out together for quite some time, the fourth quarter was Curry's.
Stephen Curry was perfect from the field (4-4 3PT FG) & line (4-4 FT) for 16 pts in 4th Q to lift the Warriors over the Clippers, 106-99.— Numbers Never Lie (@ESPN_Numbers) January 21, 2013
No possession shows just how talented Curry is with the ball in his hands quite like the fast break that goes on in this video, which gets exponentially better as it goes along.
As Curry gets the ball off the Lamar Odom miss, it seems as if it's going to be a transition possession that inevitably leads to an offensive reset to play in the half court. Steph Curry didn't have time for that.
He threads the needle with the most vicious bounce pass possible, avoiding Blake Griffin and Eric Bledsoe, directly into the hands of Jarrett Jack.
Curry gives a head bobble (which I hope becomes his equivalent of a Mutombo finger wag), a Warriors fan goes crazy and then we see the replay from the baseline. We get to see just how narrow a window Curry had to toss it through, while Jack pulls a Rajon Rondo-esque fake at the bucket, going instead for an up-and-under.
