Golden State's Stephen Curry found himself in one of basketball's worst positions last night; being the lone defender in a three-on-one fast break. Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City was in the middle and fed the ball to Russell Westbrook on the right wing. Westbrook got a full head of steam going, and it seems pretty clear that he was going to take it to the basket regardless of whatever Curry was going to do.
Well, Curry didn't really commit to anything, so after his initial hesitation, he decided to jump for some reason as Westbrook took off for a seriously powerful one handed dunk. I mean it sounds like an explosion when he throws this one down. OKC won the game, Durant got his first triple-double, and Curry probably wishes he didn't jump on that play.
