All thanks to who else but Stephen Curry.
If one stepped away from the game almost five minutes into the third quarter, he or she would have been surprised upon their return just two minutes of game action later, because the league's first ever unanimous MVP turned the contest from a close battle into a blowout.
In one minute and 58 seconds, Curry scored 15 points. His team was up seven at the 7:09 mark. By 5:11, Curry sunk a deep three-pointer to give his team a 20-point lead. He scored all of Golden State's point during the stretch and personally outscored OKC 15-2.
Steph sunk three three-pointers, a long two, and four free throws.
Behold the glorious play-by-play log.
Curry finished the night with 28 points on 9-of-15 shooting and was needed for just 30 minutes of action. "Tonight, started off with a nice punch and was able to sustain it over the course of the game," said Curry, who missed six playoff games in the first two rounds thanks to ankle and knee injuries. "When I get open shots, obviously the confidence is there to knock them down. It's been like that since I've been back. My body's catching up, and I think I'm there."
What'd you think of the third quarter, Ron Burgundy?
