Down 20 to start the fourth quarter, the Golden State Warriors fought almost all the way back. Yet with :09 left in regulation the Warriors were down three, and it just felt like it might be New Orleans’ night.
Then Stephen Curry happened.
The game’s best shooter got his first chance in an isolation on the left side, but his three grazed off the rim. Then there was Marreese Speights to grab the offensive board, bring it out to the arc and got it to Curry in the corner for one more shot. With half of the Big Easy closing in on him to contest it, Curry splashed his second shot right trough the net.
The Warriors forced OT, then got seven more points from Curry in the extra frame to get the win. Golden State is now up 3-0 in the series.
