Found May 09, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
It was all Golden State Warriors last night in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinals match-up with the San Antonio Spurs. Klay Thompson led the way with an offensive explosion alongside shooting assasin Steph Curry. Prior to the game, the Spurs said they weren’t going to change their approach to guarding Curry, which didn’t seem like a good idea. Would it even matter, though? Check out how Curry shot this three-point shot that had everyone saying “NO! NO! NO! YYYYEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!. It is something you expect someone to try and do in a game of HORSE, not near the start of a playoff game. Curry’s shooting this season has been all-world, and it just continues as the Warriors keep this surprising playoff run going. By the way, lazy pick by Draymond Green who has done everything else really well.
