Stephen Curry just drove a 38-foot-long dagger into the collective hearts of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In a game in which he had the whole basketball world holding its breath after leaving with what looked like a badly twisted ankle, Curry returned with flames shooting out of his head and smoke coming out his ears.

After the Warriors completed a huge fourth-quarter comeback and sent the game into overtime with a frantic final sequence, Curry broke his own single-season 3-point record with his 11th of the game. With the game tied, and three seconds left in overtime, he hit his 12th.

It was ... deep.

Curry's dagger also tied the single-game 3-pointer record, shared by Donyell Marshall and Kobe Bryant.

So, if you're keeping track, he broke a record, tied a record, and sunk the Thunder in ridiculously theatrical fashion all in the span of about three minutes. That he scored 46 points and lifted the Warriors to 53-5 seemed almost beside the point.

Dance all you like, Steph.
