Scott Van Pelt has just about had it with all the internet tough guys throwing shade at Steph Curry.
The Warriors point guard is the most under-appreciated superstar in sports, and anytime he has an off night in the playoffs a gang of people who were cut from their middle school basketball team pile on the two-time NBA MVP.
Such was the case during the Dubs' second-round series against the Rockets. Through five-and-a-half games, Curry was mired in a horrible shooting slump that was made worse by the dislocated finger on his guide hand.
The slump, however, ended with a bang in Game 6 against the Rockets when Curry poured in 33 second-half points to eliminate Houston.
Curry's hot shooting continued Tuesday night at Oracle Arena when he scored 36 points and hit nine 3-pointers to lead the Warriors to a 116-94 win over the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
After Curry's lethal display from deep, Van Pelt torched Curry's haters in an epic "SportsCenter" highlight read.

"Meanwhile, Steph," Van Pelt. "How's that Steph slander working out for all y'all people? You guys still having fun with the jokes? We still doing the jokes on the internet still? Yeah, keep eating these three. This is for all y'all who got jokes about Steph."
No need to say anything else.
