During the second quarter of the game, Stephen broke Chris Paul’s ankles with an impressive behind-the-back dribble move, leaving Chris with no option but to hit the floor.
The double behind-the-back dribble took place close to the baseline shortly after Stephen Curry faked out the entire team near the hoop. At first glance, it looked like Stephen was going to go for a lay-up or even a quick dunk for an easy score.
However, the paint was heavily guarded, so the 27-year-old point guard may have quickly changed those plans. Curry quickly raced along the baseline with Chris Paul following close behind him.
Right when it seemed like Stephen Curry was backing himself into an inescapable corner, he pulled off the impressive double behind-the-back dribble — landing Chris Paul on the floor. To put the icing on the cake, the “Baby-Faced Assassin” freed himself up for a beautiful shot.
The footage of the impressive dribbling move has been posted by numerous websites — including Bleacher Report and World Star Hip-Hop.
It did not take long before the Stephen Curry vs. Chris Paul encounter was blasted and mocked online with a growing collection of creative tweets and memes.
