The reigning MVP gave Delly a reminder of the step back move he saw repeatedly during his stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2014-15 season.

This is the same move, though with a different hand, that Curry abused throughout six games in the 2015 NBA Finals, a move Dellavedova has become quite familiar with, yet proved difficult to stop.
Stephen Curry finished the half with 18 points, including 4-of-6 from deep — his best half shooting the ball in the past 11 games.
