It’s a Stephen Curry World…
And we are all simply living in it. Including his
Of course, the motto of any shooter is “the next one is going in,” and even though Curry acknowledged his cold-shooting frustration, when it came to winning time, he was the biggest player on the floor. He also rediscovered his majestic shooting stroke and scored 13 of the final 15 points for Davidson to lift them over West Virginia.
The Sporting News’ Dan Shanoff witnessed Curry’s heroics, which he kindly documented:
With 5 minutes to play, WVU was up 3. Then Curry hit a 3. WVU went back up by 2. Curry hit a jumper. WVU went back up by 4 with 1:30 to play. Curry hit another 3. Davidson down 1. Then Curry hit yet another 3, with :37 to play, putting Davidson up by 2. WVU never regained the lead.
That, my friends, is called “clutch” and is also the definition of playing winning basketball. Remember, Curry’s closing explosion came after a horrid shooting first half. But his teammates kept telling him to shoot the ball because they probably knew exactly what was coming.
Look! Highlights of the closing moments:
Since we talking about him, where does Curry fit in the Player of the Year discussion? As of today, the award would go to either Curry or Blake Griffin at Oklahoma. Out of these two, who would you pick?
