Stephen Curry may be hobbled, but that isn’t stopping him from making difficult shots. During the third quarter of Game 4, Curry took Tony Parker off the dribble and improvised on the fly. Curry, knowing he wasn’t going to be able to shoot the driving jumper with his normal right hand, decided to let it go from the left hand. The result? A running left-handed bank shot to the disbelief of Tony Parker. Apparently Spurs coach, Gregg Popovich didn’t think it was a lucky shot, because he let Parker have it following the play. In fact, Parker had a seat on the bench following the circus shot. Check it out:
