Seth Curry with the Wild Disrespect to the OKC Bench

Damian Lillard had a truly magically close out performance against the Thunder. 50 points, 7 boards, 6 assists. The only thing a coach can say to his team at that point is to give him the ball and get out of his way. And that is exactly what they did for the last play of the game. One shot. Damian Lillard be guarded Paul George. 40 feet away from the basket, back where it all started.

Watch the play again and keep an eye on the back corner by OKC’s bench. That is where Seth Curry was telling the OKC bench that Dame was sending them home. He just did what Larry Bird and Michael Jordan used to do before big shots, but for somebody else. Which, in a way, is almost more impressive. The stare down after is just wildly disrespectful. Now, the Thunder have plenty of time to be butthurt about it as they fail to make the second round for the third straight year.

It was “a bad shot” from Lillard according to Paul George, but when he has proven that he can make that shot multiple times and already has 47 points, maybe Playoff P should have gotten a hand in his face sooner. Lucky for Seth, Dame is money from 40 feet and closer.
