As Kevin Durant famously said: "Steph is the system."
The Warriors' motion offense that Steve Ker installed upon his arrival focuses on constant player and ball movement in order to create the best shot possible. The system effectiveness was maximized with Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Durant running it, but Curry's greatness is the driving factor.
On the latest episode of "The Rex Chapman Show," Curry revealed the moment he "broke" Kerr's system.
"We put in our motion kind of system and he knew that was going to allow us to have everybody involved, create good shots, feature me and Klay as a great backcourt," Curry told Chapman. "There was that one video of I think I hit a shot against the Clippers and I did like seven dribbles between my legs, came back to the top of the key, Klay was open but I was in such rhythm that I just turned around and shot it.
"You see him over on the side of the court like, 'What is he doing?' Then I make it and he just puts his hands on his head and turns around and walks back. That's when I broke the system on what is a good/bad shot conversation."
In case you need a refresher of the wizardry Curry is referring to ...
Sometimes all you can do is shake your head in disbelief.
Curry has been breaking every team's defensive system of late. The Warriors star had scored 30-plus points in 11 straight games before Wednesday night's loss to the Washington Wizards.
He'll look to start a new streak Friday night when the Warriors welcome NBA MVP frontrunner Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets to Chase Center.
