This was one of those highlights that appeared to be flashier than necessary on the surface, until you take a closer look at the defender’s position.
Stephen Curry found Klay Thompson with a smooth behind-the-back pass in transition during the Warriors’ win over the Jazz on Saturday, and for the play to be successful, he honestly had little choice.
Gordon Hayward was back defensively, and was playing the passing lane almost perfectly. Curry had to go behind his back to get the pass where it needed to go, and Thompson did the rest, converting at the rim for the tough reverse finish.
