Stephen Curry🏀 on His Dunk: “It Was Like a 😍Dream”-📹
Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant run the play almost every day in practice. But as Curry dutifully noted, “99.9 percent of the time, it doesn’t end with me dunking the ball.”
And in the .01 percent of the time? Curry offered the biggest highlight of the Warriors’ 118-108 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday by throwing down a two-handed dunk during a fast break.
“It was like a dream that I thought I was going to wake up and be back on my bed in the hotel,” Curry said. “But it actually happened. Somebody said it was like a unicorn sighting. But it was pretty cool for me to get a dunk in that kind of situation.”
The situation played out this way: Warriors forward Draymond Green threw a cross-court pass to Warriors forward Kevin Durant. Cavaliers forward J.R. Smith immediately rotated toward Durant. So did Cleveland guard Isaiah Thomas. So Durant thread the needle in between Thomas and James toward Curry. With no one guarding Curry in the paint, he leaped for a two-handed dunk to cut the Cavaliers’ lead to 64-62 with 10:47 left in the third quarter to cap off a 5-0 run.
