Stephen Curry’s Tight Handle Has Kyrie Irving Swiping At Air

02.27.15 4 years ago

The Cavs knocked the Dubs in the mouth last night in Cleveland, with LeBron James scoring a season-high 42 points in a 110-99 win. But Stephen Curry and crew were winning, 33-32, after the high-scoring first-quarter where Curry poured in 12 of his 18 points on the night.

This wasn’t the play where Kyrie Irving hurt his left shoulder, but it might as well have been.

Steph caught Kyrie with his hand in the cookie jar, and went back around his back with Irving grabbing nothing but air.

Curry finished just 5-of-17 from the field, including 1-of-10 in the second half, but Kyrie wasn’t that much better, going 6-of-17 on the night.

The play didn’t matter much since nothing came as a result of the move — except some slight sheepishness from Kyrie. But even on a night when Steph struggled (unlike his brother), and his team lost, Curry’s deft ball-handing is still a marvel to behold.
