Steph Curry Dropped 40 Last Night, But His Best Play Was This Insane Pass

By

After missing the last 15 days due to injury, Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry made his playoff return Monday night with a bang.

The reigning NBA MVP dropped 40 points on the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 4 of the NBA playoffs, propelling Golden State to a 132-125 overtime victory and a 3-1 lead overall in the best-of-seven series.

Yeah, pretty sure it's not just Trail Blazers fans waking up this morning with this expression.

Curry's MVP performance came in the clutch, too. He had just 13 points through the first three quarters of the game, but heated up to drop 27 more in the fourth quarter and overtime combined.

But, one of Curry's most crucial contributions last night wasn't scoring a long-range three, as he's done so many times before. It was this insane no-look pass to Draymond Green for a one-handed jam.

As you can see in the video above, the play was massive because it occurred with the Warriors down three points with less than two minutes remaining in regulation.

And, uh, not like I'm rooting for the Warriors or anything, but Green probably should've gotten the foul call there, too.

With Golden State now up three games to one, Steph Curry back in action and the series heading to the Warriors' home court for Game 5, it looks like it's just about time for the fat lady to start singing.
