Stephen Curry routinely delivers mind-numbing highlights.
But even he had to be in awe of the trick he pulled from his bag late in the fourth quarter of Game 2 between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Golden State Warriors first-round playoff series Monday night.
The Warriors' All-Star point guard lost the handle of the basketball, but recovered, jumped into two defenders and while in mid-air still managed to find teammate Andrew Bogut for the wide open two-handed dunk. The play helped drive the final blow with the Warriors winning 97-87 and taking a 2-0 series lead. Klay Thompson had 26 points and Curry added 22 more. Anthony Davis had 26 points for the Pelicans.
In the earlier playoff game Monday night, the Chicago Bulls scored a 91-82 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series and have a 2-0 series lead as well. Jimmy Butler had 31 points and nine rebounds for the Bulls with Derrick Rose chipping in with 15 points.
