If one play can sum up a game, this was it.
Stephen Curry was every bit the MVP Saturday night, dropping 40 points on 19 shots — hitting shots then telling the fans courtside to sit down. He owned the game that put the Warriors up 3-0 and within a game of the Finals. That included out working and getting an offensive rebound in front of Dwight Howard, who has six inches and at least 50 pounds on Curry. It was about hustle and desire.
We should be fair to Howard here, he was the only Rocket who brought it in Game 3. He was 6-of-10 shooting, he was playing defense and blocking shots, he was encouraging teammates. It was just not near enough.
This was Curry’s night.
