HOOP 1: Pump fakes man, dribble, corner three. Eh, not bad. He did do that 272 times in the regular season. Same could be said for HOOP 2, as it's just a wide-open three that crushes the net with a violent swish. But don't you just wanna scream this at the Nuggets. Why aren't you guarding him!
HOOP 3: 5 under the legs dribbles, with a crossover on top, Steph tries whipping the pass under for a dunk, but ends up catching the ricochet, and scoops it off glass from a tough angle. No doubt that J.J. Bucklin did this when seeing the aforementioned bucket.
HOOP 4: Crosses Andre Miller, plops in the deuce with ease. Pants Kez reaction. Things only get saucier with HOOP 5, a three hit from way downtown.
HOOP 6: This is where things really get bananas. Once again, it's Andre Miller that Steph gets by, and the Curry Sauce finishes with a looping, high, bonkers lefty runner AND ONE, taking some contact, before jumping up, and clapping with the crowd. Reaction here. And we cap things off with HOOPS 7 & 8. The first is the ultimate Heat Check, just scurrying down the court, before launching from three (this is what I was doing), while the second occurs after he gets it back in the corner to hit one more three.
Five three's made in the quarter, plus a series lead, and his name now ringing out as the breakout player of these 2013 NBA Playoffs? I'd say Steph Curry is enjoying his time right about now.
