This was a Steph Curry who was hearing it from the crowd in the expensive seats at the Toyota Center, in a game that both sides knew could very well turn the Western Conference Finals and send them in a direction that would be hard to change. And in a flurry of cold-blooded daggers — off the dribble, catch-and-shoot and in the corner where one particular fan got under his skin, Curry showed a different side of himself, even if it is still in the formative stages.
Steph Curry, villain.
“It’s fun, playoff basketball, and you get hecklers — guys up close who paid a lot of money for those seats and want to get their money’s worth,” Curry said after dropping 40 points on the Rockets in a 115-80 evisceration of Houston that gave Golden State a 3-0 chokehold in the best-of-7 series.
