VIDEO: Warriors star Stephen Curry controls physics itself with sweet wraparound lay-up
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry’s creativity has no limits. Most of the time, he’s so graceful with the ball that it just defies physics. Such was the case when the Dubs hosted the Houston Rockets at Chase Center on Saturday.
Matched up against a string of talented Rockets guards, the two-time NBA MVP resorted to some trickery to get himself a good look at the basket. Rockets guard John Wall, who is considered to be a pretty good defender at his position, was totally schooled by Curry on the play.
The three-time NBA champion got past Wall and proceeded to do a wrap-around lay-up against help defender Kevin Porter Jr. That wasn’t enough for Steph. He added more sauce by finishing a difficult, off-balanced scoop lay-up plus the harm, of course.
Words probably won’t do Curry’s highlight justice, so just for yourself, here:

In the end, Stephen Curry’s magic was just too much to handle for Houston, as they succumbed to the Warriors on a 125-109 defeat. The 33-year-old megastar finished with his sixth straight 30-point plus game, notching game-highs of 38 points on a scintillating 13-for-21 shooting from the field including eight made triples, as well as eight boards, five dimes and one steal in 35 minutes.
With Chef Curry cooking over the last few games, the Warriors hoping it will be enough to turn their season around.
