Stephen Curry leaps sideways to draw foul, drains three anyway

If the Cavaliers are going to force a Game 5, they are going to have to come from behind. Cleveland was quickly down double-digits, in part because the Cavaliers started 2-of-10 shooting.

In part because Stephen Curry was hitting shots like this.

Good on the officials for not calling the foul there (even if there was some contact). Referees have been instructed not to give the foul call when a player leaps sideways to try to draw contact. That’s not a natural shooting motion.

The Cavs did put together a little run later to keep the game close early.
