#1. Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs

Finally, Game 4 in the Western Semifinals was the best Stephen Curry moment during these playoffs. Left limping on a severely injured ankle, Curry looked like he could barely run, much less jump. Still he left everything on the court, and willed the Warriors to their last victory in the 2013 playoffs.

Beaten and bruised, the Warriors were collectively exhausted and hurt. Jarrett Jack and Harrison Barnes were the only ones to show up most of the game, but when it mattered the most, Curry came through and displayed on national television why he was the undisputed leader of the Warriors.

His night was capped off with a left handed floater that put the Spurs away for good. A frustrated, gimpy, Curry, playing on essentially one leg, did not reserve an ounce of effort on the court. Everybody knows Curry can shoot the ball. But Curry showed that night that even when his body doesn’t cooperate, or he is counted out, he will show up and carry the team as far as he can.
