Twitter goes wild after Stephen Curry cooks LeBron James 1-on-1
One of the highlights of NBA Finals Game 2 was Stephen Curry smoking LeBron James in a brief 1-on-1 encounter in the third quarter.
It was a great play from Curry, who faked roughly 17 different ways, taking LeBron with him, before putting in a layup. (To be fair, James stayed with him almost all the way—and Curry may have double dribbled.)
And another angle:
Twitter, of course, went crazy after the play. Here's a look at some of the best reactions to Curry's brilliant footwork.

Stephen Curry just put LeBron James in a blender, and finished at the rim. Let's just say he wasn't doing that in last year's Finals.— Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) June 5, 2017
