Stephen Curry is so good it's scary.
The Golden State Warriors' All-Star point guard didn't let the New Orleans Pelicans steal Game 3, even if he needed overtime to make sure of that. Curry poured in 40 points, dished nine assists and grabbed five rebounds to lead the No. 1 Warriors to a 123-119 overtime win over the Pelicans on Thursday night, increasing Golden State's series lead to 3-0.
But Curry wasn't the only star player who came to play Thursday night.
Derrick Rose pushed the Chicago Bulls to a 113-106 double-overtime win over the sixth-seed Milwaukee Bucks, giving the Bulls a commanding 3-0 lead in their first-round series as well. Rose looked every bit like a former MVP, driving to the hoop with reckless abandon and pulling up for jumpers en route to a 34-point night on 12-of-23 shooting from the field.
LeBron James also seen to it that his No. 2 Cleveland Cavaliers went up 3-0 on the seventh-seed Boston Celtics via a 103-93 victory. King James led the way with 31 points and 11 rebounds.
