Stephen Curry goes off in third quarter, sparks Warriors win (VIDEO)

May 3, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

Is there a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA than Stephen Curry?

And when he’s hot, he’s unstoppable. Which the Nuggets found out — again — in the third quarter when Curry dropped 14 points and 3 assists on them, sparking a 33-20 quarter when the Warriors pulled away. Denver never led again, that despite the efforts of the Warriors to give it away in the final five minutes.

Curry and the Warriors should celebrate. This is well deserved, well earned for a young team. It’s a fan base that deserves some good things to come its way. Things will feel a lot different Monday in San Antonio, but savor this for now. It’s a great moment and the team has a bright future.

    When he hit three straight 3’s plus the crowd, there is nothing better than watching a streak like that.

    Wooooo go GSW. People gonna be paying up after I picked warriors in 6. WE BELIEVE!!

    It’s weird as well though. This team has fully exceeded expectations yet without Bogut for much of season AND people forget about Brandon Rush – who combined with Jack and Landry, Green and Ezeli would have formed one of the stronger benches in the league. Dude was a key cog

    Am I the only one who thinks the Spurs will expose Curry? the raining 3’s are impressive, but Denver’s perimeter D was weak (excluding Iggy)….

      “expose” that term seems to imply that he cant really shoot, or that he can’t really penetrate and dish. will they limit his effectiveness to some degree, yes. will they be much better defensively, yes.

      but expose him to be what?

      Popovich won’t allow Curry to be wide open like Denver did. That’s not an indictment on George Karl its just fact that Pop is one of the best defensive coaches in the game.

      GSW will be lucky to win one game.

        Your right they will be lucky to win one…..That sounds so familiar……The Spurs are so freakin awesome the Warriors shouldn’t even show up, they got no chance at upsetting a higher seed with more experience, more depth and who is an all in all more complete and deep team……Surely the Spurs wouldn’t allow themselves to be upended by a lower seed in the playoffs…..lol So laughable….They did split the series and one of the games in San Antonio took a crazy flurry in the last 4 minutes by Parker to finally put the Warriors away.

        Only gotta win 1 down there and take care of their home court. They have lost 29 straight in San Antonio……Sounds like they are due for a win…….

    • 808rude - May 4, 2013 at 2:54 AM

      Yup they will completes expose him!! They already have held him to 14-30 from 3’s in the regular season…..Thats just under 50 percent……..completely exposed…..Thats some stifling defense right there!! He only scored 35 on them in an OT win in Oakland and only shot 7 of 13 from 3’s…..more stifling defense….

    Yeah…that Steph is pretty soft!

  6. 4thquartermagic - May 3, 2013 at 11:37 AM

    Best shooter in the game… left wide open three straight times… for three straight 3’s.

    Nuggets, with defense like that, you deserved to lose.

    Please upload the “Mark Jackson Post Game God Interview”. Hilarious. How do you feel about the game? God is Good. How do u…God, God, God. My guys and my God. lol Mark Jackson has a sixth man out there guiding curry shots into the hoop.

      Yeah, it was like Kurt Warner all over again. Or Tebow. After the 5 straight turnovers, I thought Mark would drop to his knees, clench his hands , and start praying for an earthquake to stop the game with GS ahead.

    I’ve watched Curry all season and he’s under rated. He can get his shot off over anyone. His fundamentals and relase are so quick that it doesnt matter who is in his face. he was wide open on his three’s for the most part. He pump fakes or just quickly releases right over you. A player just doesnt make that many three’s in a season because of bad defense or great screens. he’s a special special player and who gives a F*** about the All star game.
