Stephen Curry breaks Steve Nash’s ankles, drains three (VIDEO)

Mar 26, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

When Stephen Curry has it going there may not be a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA.

And he had it going against the Lakers Monday — 25 points, 10 assists and spearheading the Warriors win over the Lakers. Maybe the most memorable play is this one, where a little move leaves Steve Nash on skates and unable to recover. Which is pretty much how the Lakers defense looked all night.

Golden State needs the wins — it wants the six seed in the West, which will give them the Clippers, Grizzlies or Nuggets (three teams clumped together at three, four and five). While the Warriors don’t stand much of a chance against any of those teams the odds are better than being the seven seed and getting the Thunder in the first round. If the Warriors hold off the Rockets and keep that six seed, it will be because Curry is making more plays like this.

    “While the Warriors don’t stand much of a chance against any of those teams”

    I love this quote! Especially since the Warriors have owned the Clippers this season,a and thats without Bogut. I remember that being said about another team a few years back the Warriors had no chance against in the playoffs after owning them in the regular season, *cough* Mavericks *cough*.

    They would have beaten the jazz that year too… If it wasn’t for the officials.

    Nash has been get burn and crossover… but NOOOOOOOOO everyone is focus on Kobe’s defense. PGs have been killing the Lakers since the D. Fish years.

    Forgot to DVR the game last night, thought the addition of “Steve Nash’s” was a misprint. Take out those words and it would have made a lot of sense.

    Were the 6th seed and matched up against the most overrated playoff team in the west!! Our starting SF was hurt for the season in the 1st couple of weeks which forced us to start our rook earlier then we wanted…bogut barley came back and still isn’t at 100% ..
    And we would’ve beat the jazz..the ref in the series did 2yrs in prison for betting on the games! (Tim Donahue)

      Quit yo $hit

    Nash has been getting burned on defense his whole career really. He could get away with it before b/c 1. his teams were so offensively efficient they just outscored people anway, and 2. He had better help defense on those teams. Neither of those are happening on this Lakers team, which is mind blowing considering Dwight is in the middle.

    • phillylawhopeful - Mar 26, 2013 at 2:26 PM

      Your whole defense can’t be a single player. Howard’s giving the Lakers 13 rebounds and 3 blocks a game AND the Lakers are near the top of the league in rebound differential.

      But the non-Dwight D stats are bad. Only Orlando has a worse turnover ratio in the league! The Lakers are near the bottom of the league in steals and blocks (although Dwight is top 5 in blocks – no one else blocks on the team). They are middle of the road in opponent FG %.

    Usually Steph is the one sidelined for months with broken ankles. Ironic. Curry will be this generations Grant Hill with metal on metal ankles in 2 years.
