Curry’s Clutch Performance
The Warriors were leading by just one point, 88–87, with five minutes left in the game. That’s when Curry decided to take over and put the game away. He scored 12 of the Warriors’ next 14 points, all from behind the arc, in a span of two minutes. He made four three-pointers in a row, each one more difficult than the last.
The first one was a catch-and-shoot from the corner, after a pass from Draymond Green. The second one was a step back from the top of the key, after dribbling past Christian Wood. The third one was a pull-up from the wing, after crossing over Kevin Porter Jr. The fourth one was the most spectacular of them all.
Curry’s Crossover on Brooks
Curry brought the ball up the court and faced Dillon Brooks, who is known as one of the NBA’s defensive villains. Brooks often fouls and trash talks his opponents, and he had already picked up a technical foul earlier in the game for arguing with the referees.
Curry used a screen from Kevon Looney to get some space from Brooks, but Brooks recovered quickly and tried to stay in front of him. Curry then pulled out a mean crossover that got Brooks moving in the wrong direction. As Brooks tried to regain his balance, Curry hesitated and waited for him to fly past him through the air. Then he calmly released his shot and swished it.
It was a move so good that even Curry appeared to struggle to comprehend what he had just done. He turned around and looked at Brooks with a mix of disbelief and amusement. He then ran back to the other end of the court with a smile on his face.
Fans’ Reaction to Curry’s Move
Fans on social media went wild over Curry’s move, especially because it came against Brooks, who is not well-liked by many NBA fans. Some of the reactions were:
- “Steph Curry just sent Dillon Brooks to another dimension with that crossover.”
- “Dillon Brooks is gonna have nightmares about Steph Curry for the rest of his life.”
- “Steph Curry just made Dillon Brooks look like a fool. That was disrespectful.”
- “Dillon Brooks deserves that for being such a dirty player. Karma is real.”
- “Steph Curry is not human. How did he do that?”
Warriors’ win and record
With Curry’s clutch performance, the Warriors secured their second win of the season and improved their record to 2–1. They also snapped a four-game losing streak against the Rockets, who had beaten them in their previous two meetings this season.
Curry finished the game with 30 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists. He made 10 out of 21 shots from the field, including 6 out of 13 from three-point range. He also had 3 steals and 2 blocks.
