Late in the first half, with Denver up and Golden State staring a potential Game 7 in the face, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled Steph Curry aside and said, "There's going to be a point in this game where you're going to take over because you're the best player on the floor." That's not being psychic; that's just knowing Steph Curry.
The third quarter proved to be Curry's time, as it was in Game 4. Over a white-hot seven minutes, Curry hit all four three-pointers he took, pouring in 14 points and adding three assists, two of them unlikely bullets into traffic. Before he started shooting, Golden State was down two. When the seven minutes were up, they had an 11-point lead.
