Stephen Curry drove boldly to the basket with jaw-dropping acrobatics all afternoon, and he shot with precision from the perimeter in a Game 7. He did this while flashing that characteristic mouthpiece with a joyful grin. Even worse, he jokingly pretended to press the “light the beam” button. Curry led the Warriors to a 120-100 victory over the Sacramento Kings in Sunday’s winner-take-all Game 7. He sent Golden State into the Western Conference semifinals with his playoff career-high 50-point performance. This was the most prolific Game 7 performance ever.

Curry led a stunning comeback in the series that was arguably unimaginable for the reigning champs given their road difficulties all season and their 2-0 deficit. Curry outscored former teammate Kevin Durant’s 48 points for the Nets against Milwaukee in 2021 to record the most points in an NBA Game 7 ever! To become the first reigning champion to lose the first two games and win any postseason series, the Warriors needed to win twice on the road in front of a hostile, cowbell-ringing crowd in the state capital.
