Warriors’ Stephen Curry confuses the hell out of Cedi Osman with nifty handles
Stephen Curry just made Cedi Osman wear his dancing shoes. The Golden State Warriors superstar displayed his insane handles on Monday night against the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers at the expense of the Turkish forward. Curry had Osman confused with a series of dribble crossovers and fakes before knocking down the sweet mid-range jumper.
Good thing Mr. Osman was able to save himself the extra embarrassment and stayed on his two feet the entire time against Stephen Curry:

As we’ve seen him do almost his entire career, Stephen Curry is almost virtually unstoppable when he has it going like this. With his size, the 32-year-old has found ways to become unguardable with his creativity and, of course, his shooting.
With his impeccable accuracy from the field, it’s easy to forget how crazy good Stephen Curry’s handles are. The two-time MVP is arguably one of the best in the league in terms of creating his own shot off the dribble and plays like this definitely showcase this aspect of his game.
With his team being short-handed, the Warriors are giving the rock to Chef Stephen Curry and he has definitely been cooking.
With seven minutes left in the third quarter, Stephen Curry and the Warriors lead the Cavs, 78-67. Golden State scored 32 points in each of the first two quarters and has posted 14 points in the first five minutes of the third quarter, which has the Dubs on pace to score 32 points in yet another quarter and over 120 points for the game. Cleveland has to find defensive answers, but it will be hard to do that, given how potent and overwhelming Steph has been in the first two and a half quarters of this contest.
