Stephen Curry explodes for 22 points in third quarter (VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS)

Apr 29, 2013, 3:04 AM EDT

For the first 29 minutes Sunday night, Denver’s strategy of taking Stephen Curry out of the Warriors offense was working — he only had one basket and that was a late in the clock desperation three from 28 feet. Curry had five assists, but Denver was successfully keeping him from triggering the offense.

And then he went off — 22 points in the fourth quarter leading the Warriors to a Game 4 win and commanding 3-1 series lead.

We’re running this video because, well, when Curry gets going there is no more entertaining player to watch in he game.

    Curry is that dude!!

    I’m a Laker fan but i feel like i will find myself rooting for GSU the rest of the way. Hope to see a GSU vs Memphis WCF.

      Thanks for the support Lakers fan, but don’t you mean GSW (Golden State Warriors? Not Golden State University?)

    Fantastic stuff. I hope he can stay healthy through his career. He will be a joy to watch for years to come

    I was amazed at what I saw last night.

    In many ways, Curry reminds me of a young Ray Allen

      Ray Allen is a tremendous shooter, but Curry is such a crafty PG. People who don’t watch the Warriors calls him a jump shooter. But if you watch his whole game, he has really stepped up his game. He won’t out jump or out quick everyone, but his misdirection and array of shots will leave people shaking their heads.
      He’s also learning to be a very good assisting PG. Which just makes him so dangerous.

    • borderline1988 - Apr 29, 2013 at 12:12 PM

      He’s better than Ray Allen. He’s just as good of a shooter but he definitely has better vision, better passing ability, better finishing ability, better dribbling, etc. – even comparing to Ray Allen’s pre-Boston years, when he was more of a playmaker than he is now.

      Curry has more potential, but staying healthy and performing at such a high level for so long (as Ray Allen has) requires a lot of maturity, hard work, professionalism, attention to detail, and luck (regarding injury). It remains to be seen whether Curry can match Allen’s career.

    He turned around to look at Denver’s bench while the ball was still in the air! That’s ridiculous

    No west coast biased here (I’m a Nuggets fan) how has this kid played for 3 years and not gone to the All-Star game?

    Watching him stroke the ball is the most entertaining thing in basketball right now.

    Smooth Like – George Gervin
    Ankle Breaker like – A.I.

    Dear Warriors fans-
    If you think you can ride Steph Curry to a championship, think again. If you’re just in it for the entertainment value, enjoy the ride.

    Signed,
    Reggie Miller

    Dear clueless-
    Dubs got 4 guys a night chipping in on offense, their playing great team defense, everyones blocking out, Bogut is controlling the middle, and oh ya nobody on the planet is shooting the ball better then Curry. Curry is taking games over in the second half of games and proving he’s the best player on the court. Reggie was rarely the best player on the court and your clueless to compare Dubs to Indiana. Maybe try making comments on the college hoops site for awhile before you try and comment on the NBA.
