You know the old saying: If you can’t beat him…put a hand on his head?
While the reigning MVP danced with the rock, Anthony deliberately kept a hand on his forehead. Melo was called for a foul, so the ensuing ridiculous shot from Steph didn’t count.
The Warriors went on to win, 116-95.
After the game, Curry was spotted with a cut on his head. He said it was from "great defense," per ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk:

Anthony offered his own explanation, too, per ESPN's Ian Begley:
