Watch: Chris Paul Shimmies in Stephen Curry's Face After Hitting a Three

Ice. Cold. 

Chris Paul gave Stephen Curry a taste of his own medicine with a shimmy in Steph face after hitting a big three during Thursday’s Game 5 between the Rockets and Warriors.

Paul had been having a bad game up until the shot in the third quarter. He hit the three over Curry's head as the shot clock was winding down.

The point guard reacted with a shimmy as Curry ran by him. Curry saw Paul's moves and smiled.

Paul's three-pointer put the Rockets up 59-57 with 6:27 left in the third quarter.

The dance has become Curry's signature move during the Western Conference finals. Curry's shimmy during Game 3 quickly became a fan favorite.

Houston outlasted Golden State 98-94 to win Game 5 and take a 3-2 series lead in the Western Conference finals. Paul, who appeared to tweak his hamstring in the final minutes, finished with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists.
