Stephen Curry had a field day at the expense of one of the league’s most prolific trash talkers. On Oct. 29, Curry led the Golden State Warriors with a 24-point, 7-rebound and 6-assist performance in 31 minutes in a 106-95 win over the Houston Rockets.In closing moments, he began to show off.

It started with Curry knocking down three consecutive 3-pointers. The road crowd in Houston’s cheers grew louder after every successful attempt.

The standout moment of the day and one of the NBA season’s early highlights came on the fourth 3-pointer of the quarter, however. With Dillon Brooks guarding him, Curry crossed him over, then moved the ball behind his back, dribbled twice forward before going between his legs, into another crossover that froze Brooks, Curry then stepped back behind the 3-point line before pump-faking and making the open 3-pointer.

He celebrated the array of moves and made the shot while making a shocked face on his way back on defense.

“We know what he’s about and his reputation,” Curry said after cracking a smile on the NBC Sports postgame show. “I don’t get caught up in that, I just play basketball. He obviously let his game do the talking. You know what teams come in there to try to beat you. There’s a lot of history with him, in particular, but at the end of the day, you just hoop. The results speak for themselves. I like to have fun out here, especially fourth quarter when it’s winning time.”
