“Night Night” Watch Steph Curry flaunts his signature pose before closing out the Mavericks in Game 2 of WCF

Luka Doncic had been undoubtedly dominating for most of the night yesterday with the Mavs went to halftime winning the first 2 quarters of the game-2 against the Warriors. 

The Dubs came from behind to ruin the Mavs in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals led by Steph Curry, who finished with 32 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists, but it was his first three of the game that made history.

Coming into this game with 819 career points in the Western Conference Finals, Curry was just two points behind Karl Malone for 6th place on the Western Conference Finals all-time scoring list. With his first three, Curry passed Malone.

Now with 851 career points in the WCF, Curry is just 105 points behind to take over the 4th place from both Magic Johnson and Tim Duncan. Having played just 29 career WCF games, Curry is closing in on both Duncan and Magic, despite playing 23 less WCF games than Magic, and 16 less than Duncan. Should this series go long enough, both of those players could potentially be passed by Curry this year.

While individual stats certainly reflect Steph Curry’s greatness, the superstar point guard has always been more concerned with winning than anything else. With his team up 2-0 in the WCF, the focus will have to remain sharp in order to take care of Dallas on their home floor. If Curry’s first two games of the WCF are any indication, he is ready for that challenge.

Golden State Warriors fought back strongly in the later half with Stephen Curry delivering one of those signature third-quarter flurries that have defined so many of the fate of the game. Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant, whose season was given the “night night” treatment when Golden State defeated the Grizzlies in six games in the Western Conference semifinals, seemed to enjoy the moment on Twitter.
