WATCH: Steph Curry's insane sequence on LeBron in Game 2 actually a double-dribble

One of the main highlights of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, which the Warriors won 132-113 Sunday night, was Steph Curry's ridiculous dribbling sequence that had LeBron James on skates, and ended with a tough Curry layup. 

So yeah, about that. Sorry folks, but that was a double-dribble. Look, I hate to go into highlight truther mode, but this isn't even close. 

At one point in the sequence, Curry backs up and turns to face the basket, and as he does so appears to be going into his shooting motion, but then puts the ball back down and continues to dribble. It faked LeBron out of his shoes, sending him leaping past Curry, and now we know why. 

Watch here as Curry clearly puts both hands on the ball, which James understandably assumes means he won't be dribbling again. Thus, he jumps to try and deter a shot, but ends up looking foolish as Curry gets away with the violation.

Sorry, LeBron. Looks like all the jokes you took for getting shook were unfair. 

Unfortunately, this newfound knowledge won't do anything to change the fact that the Warriors have a commanding 2-0 lead in the Finals.
