Stephen Curry hit an NBA single-season record 402 3-pointers this year.
So, the last thing you ever want to do is leave the back-to-back MVP open beyond the arc. As a matter of fact, it's downright disrespectful — not to mention, foolish — to do so.
When the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't bother putting respek on the Splash Brother's name during the third quarter Wednesday night, he made them pay with one of his five 3-pointers in what turned out to be a Golden State Warriors' 118-91 rout of the OKC in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
But it was the stunt-tastic way that Curry drained the trey that got people talking. The two-time MVP pump-faked Thunder power forward Serge Ibaka, putting him in flight, shot a three and looked back with the ball in the air, knowing it was going in — nothing but net.
That's just too, too cold-blooded, Steph.

Serge... bruh... don't ever leave your feet and free up Curry for a WIDE-OPEN 3-pointer.
You should already know that Steph hits 3's like layups out here.
Knotted at 1-1, the Western Conference Finals will shift to Oklahoma City for Game 3 on Sunday night.
