Warriors' Juan Toscano-Anderson celebrates

Juan Toscano-Anderson has reason to be confident. The 27-year-old is living the dream, starting for his hometown Warriors and making an impact on a nightly basis.

No wonder he was just a little overexuberant celebrating a Steph Curry 3-pointer in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 111-105 win over the Orlando Magic at Chase Center.

Toscano-Anderson fired a crosscourt pass to a wide-open Curry, celebrating with an emphatic windmill before Curry even took the shot.

The Oakland native was done celebrating for what felt like a lifetime before Curry's shot dropped through the net. Curry's known to look away from the basket after his release, but his teammates getting in on the action is something else entirely.

"A little exciting, but you can do those things when you're playing with the best shooter in the world," Toscano-Anderson told reporters in a postgame video conference. "I'm super confident in him shooting the ball, obviously. It's kind of like every time he shoots the ball, you expect it to go in."

The two-time NBA MVP is playing well enough to warrant his teammates' confidence, averaging 37.8 points per game so far in February. He's not far off his pace from 2015-16, either, back when he became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history.

 

With Curry playing like that and Toscano playing well in his own right, Golden State won't mind the giddiness.
