WATCH: That Stephen Curry pass everyone was raving about was, in fact, illegal
Here we are, being killjoys
On Tuesday, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry threw an , extremely ridiculous, extremely illegal pass to Andre Iguodala on a fast break during the third quarter of the Warriorsâ 121-107 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. As CBS Sportsâ Jack Maloney put it, the play was âat once completely mesmerizing, probably not a legal basketball move, and yet still one of the most exciting moments of the season.â Very true.
Curry knew he got away with a double-dribble, which explains his hilarious reaction and facial expression when no call was made. Watch the replay here:
It was hard to tell when watching live, but itâs pretty obvious when you look for it: Curry picks up the ball and takes another dribble as he crosses the 3-point line before sending the behind-the-back pass to Iguodala. I donât blame the refs for missing this, but if youâre one of those people who likes to comment âTRAVEL!â or âILLEGAL!â on highlight videos, then this probably got you riled up.
After the game, Curry declined to admit that he had done anything wrong:
Sure, Steph. Whatever you say.
