On Tuesday night, Stephen Curry delivered a double-behind-the-back move that caused Chris Paul to fall to the ground.
But it may not have gone viral had Curry missed the ensuing 10-foot baseline jumper.
"The most important thing about it," Draymond Green explained to KNBR 680-AM on Wednesday night, "... If you make that move and he falls like that and you miss the shot, it doesn't mean as much. But when you knock that shot down, it means everything. So that was the best part about it."
Paul was a good sport about the whole situation following the game, telling reporters, "That man is tough.Obviously, he has a great handle; you saw that. My college coaches used to say that basketball is a team game, played by individuals. So, luckily for me, we do not play one-on-one every night."
As doctored images and memes of Paul slipping to the floor spread around social media, the Clippers point guard took the opportunity to show some humility.
Paul posted the following message to his Instagram account.
"Hey @kevinhart4real out of the 8 you sent me, this was the funniest one!! Now relax lol #GotMe #GottaLaughAtYourself"
Curry's dazzling display sent the Warriors bench into full-on celebration mode and ignited the Staples Center crowd.
"Thank you Jesus I was behind the bench because if I wasn't I probably would have got a tech (technical)," Green said. "Man, that was pretty bad. Great move. I know for a fact Steph wasn't intending to do that, but Steph got the ball on a string and that move was incredible."
