That's how many points Stephen Curry tallied after Heat forward James Johnson killed him with this dunk to close out the opening quarter.

Johnson, 29, is enjoying a career year with the Heat, averaging personal highs of 11.7 points, 5 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game.
Playing without a resting Klay Thompson, Curry reanimated to finish the night with 24 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, a block, and a steal to help the Warriors to a 107-95 victory. Kevin Durant led Golden State with 28 points to go with eight rebounds.
Behind a big night from Hassan Whiteside (28 points, 20 rebounds), Miami, owners of the NBA's second-worst record, cut the Dubs' lead to three halfway through the fourth quarter. Then Curry subbed in to help the Warriors break away.
“We definitely missed [Thompson],” Durant said. “Hopefully, he’s rested up and ready for the next game.”
