#4. Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets

In the Warriors first home playoff game since 2007, Curry led the Warriors to a thrilling 110-108 victory over the Nuggets. He had 29 points and 11 assists, and gave Oracle Arena a star to follow and cheer for.

After spraining his ankle late in Game 2, Curry could have easily wilted under the pressure of the big homecoming game. Instead, he proved to his team, his fans and the rest of the NBA that he’s ready to lead the Warriors. And this was only the beginning.
