This is Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry. He’s pretty good. Maybe you’ve heard of him.
The NBA’s Most Valuable Player scored 40 points on 12-of-19 shooting Saturday night, as his Warriors blew out the Houston Rockets 115-80 in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, taking a commanding 3-0 series lead.
Curry also set the NBA record for most 3-pointers made in a single postseason. With his seven treys Saturday, Curry now has 64 through 13 playoff games. His second of the game — No. 59 this postseason — broke Reggie Miller’s previous record of 58. Miller needed 22 games to reach that mark.
As if that wasn’t enough, Curry also decided to out-rebound Dwight Howard, who’s nearly a foot taller than him.
But that wasn’t all Curry was up to. A Rockets fan thought he could throw Curry off his game by yelling into his ear when he took a shot. But Curry chuckled and finished with the last laugh, leaving the guy hanging while looking for a high five.
The Dubs will look to finish their sweep in Game 4 on Monday.
