Though we saw it coming, Stephen Curry's emergence to superstardom came during his first-ever playoff series.
He was spectacular in every way, taking over as a scorer without forgetting his responsibilities as a point guard and floor general.
In Games 2, 3 and 4, Curry went for 30, 29 and 31, respectively, shooting a combined 31-of-56 (55.3 percent). During that three-game stretch, he dished out 31 dimes to only six turnovers. When you combine his efficiency and production as a scorer and facilitator, you're left with a win on the road and two at home.
He's just been a nightmare off the dribble, showing the ability to pull up from anywhere out to 28 feet from the hoop. But with his slick handle and craftiness as a finisher, Curry can also create his own shot and finish around traffic.
Golden State lacks defensive stoppers and veteran experience, but Curry's offensive prowess allowed him to take a series into his own hands. Whether the Warriors go down to the Spurs or not, we can officially induct Stephen Curry into the NBA superstar club.
