It was like the game of the year, and it had the attention of the entire NBA universe. The Golden State Warriors' thrilling 121-118 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder had everyone in the NBA talking... and tweeting.
With Stephen Curry scoring 46 points, tying the NBA record for 3-pointers in a game with 12, including setting a new record for most made 3's in a season and landing a 32-foot game-winning 3-pointer in OT, even the best players in the world were in total disbelief.
First and foremost? The King himself, LeBron James.

Magic Johnson played against Michael Jordan, but even he knows the heights that Curry has reached:
