Video: Warriors’ Stephen Curry toys around with Nuggets’ Paul Millsap
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry took no mercy on veteran forward Paul Millsap of the Denver Nuggets, throwing him straight into the blender with a slick hesitation move before finding Alfonzo McKinnie for a corner three.
Curry attacked the gap early, beating Monte Morris and Millsap to the punch, forcing the latter to retreat and bite on a potential jump shot before Curry made one last swift crossover to get into the heart of the paint.

To his credit, McKinnie did finish the play in the hot corner, completing the highlight reel for his star teammate.
Curry would victimize the Nuggets once again in the fourth quarter, burying a dagger three from 28 feet out, crushing the converging defense of Torrey Craig and Mason Plumlee in a high pick action.

All in all, it was another great night for Curry, who shot 50 percent or better from deep for the fifth straight game, rounding out his season total to 44 percent from beyond the arc.
The night wasn’t short of highlight reels for the back-to-back MVP or his teammates, who enjoyed a 30-point lead before the bench was deployed midway through the fourth quarter, having secured a tiebreaker with a 3-1 season series over the Nuggets.
