Get ready to see a Steph Curry highlight over and over again. It'll be on all the highlight reels Thursday night.
Curry has most recently been in the news for the revelation that he had been playing with blurred vision. That was rectified with the usage of contact lenses, as he's been on a sharpshooting streak ever since.
He put his newly improved vision to good use on Thursday, when he delivered a pass to Kevin Durant in a rather nontraditional manner. After collecting a loose ball in the Warriors' own painted area, Curry delivered a behind-the-back pass -- with his left hand -- on the money to a wide open Durant on the other side of the court, who then deposited his two easiest points of the night with a thunderous breakaway jam.
Durant's dunk increased Golden State's lead to 27-8 over the Lakers with just under five minutes remaining in the first quarter. The Warriors would go on to lead 39-12 at the end of one, and would take a 60-42 advantage into halftime.
