Go back five years and you probably couldn't find a soul who was predicting Stephen Curry would one day be dictating playoff series in the NBA. Yet it has come to that, with Denver using physical punishment to stop the best shooter on the planet. It worked last night — Curry finished with only 15 points on 19 shots. But with the Warriors' frustrations boiling over, I have no doubt Curry will respond, closing this one out back in the Bay in Game 6.
