Golden State Routs Houston, Takes Commanding 3-0 Lead: Led by Stephen Curry's 40 points, the Golden State Warriors defeated the Houston Rockets 115-80 and now have a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals. Curry has 59 threes this playoffs, a new NBA record, beating Reggie Miller in nine fewer games. Golden State is one win from its first trip to the NBA Finals since its 1975 championship, back when Rick Barry and Jamaal Wilkes won a sweep as underdogs over the Washington Bullets.

There have probably been better players and runs than the one Curry is on right now, but good lord I can't remember enjoying watching a guy play when he's on more than Curry. Bonus for when Klay's on too.

The thing with Curry is that he's just so fun to watch -- I have a hard time thinking anyone could dislike him. He's like Mariano Rivera with a much more well-rounded skill set.

Curry also was fun to watch in the press conference taken over by his daughter Riley.
