Everyone who thinks Steph Curry doesn't show up in the NBA Finals might want to check out what happened Wednesday night at Oracle Arena.
With the Warriors missing Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant for Game 3 against the Toronto Raptors, Curry went off, scoring a playoff career-high 47 points.
Unfortunately for Curry and the Warriors, the two-time defending NBA champions didn't have enough firepower to overcome the loss of their two injured stars, falling to the Raptors 123-109.
Curry put on one of the best offensive performances you'll see in the NBA Finals. The two-time NBA MVP scored 47 points while shooting 14 of 31 from the field, 6 of 13 from the 3-point line and 13 of 14 from the free-throw line while playing 43 minutes. It was an otherworldly performance from Curry, no matter the outcome of the game.
With this performance in a losing effort, Curry joined an exclusive club.

The Warriors now trail the Raptors two games to one, and they'll need Curry -- and hopefully Durant and Thompson -- to put together a performance for the ages in Game 4 to tie the best-of-seven series.
Any doubts about Steph's ability to show up under the brightest lights were just vaporized with his Game 3 performance.
