Tempers were flaring rampant on Monday night’s Western Conference showdown between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors as Stephen Curry and Semaj Christon got into a skirmish as they battled for position during a jump ball.

While many thought this was just what the home team needed as a wake-up call, the Warriors ended up winning possession of the jump ball, only to heave it upcourt and find a wide open Curry for the dagger trifecta right as the buzzer sounded.
The reigning MVP knocked down the trey with ease and consequently sprinted to the locker room as the lights lit on the backboard.
