The Golden State Warriors sharpshooter must have been taking notes when Harden got away with the move when facing the Utah Jazz on Dec. 17, although he was unable to get one over on the referees when he performed it.
"I've seen that once or twice. I tried it myself and obviously they (officials) got confused," said Curry afterward, according to the Athletic's Anthony Slater. "They knew it was somebody different, so they called it. But it is what it is."
The 30-year-old finished with 42 points in a 127-123 Golden State victory, marking his fourth 40-point outing of the campaign and 34th of his career. He also connected on 10 3-pointers on 20 attempts, which is the 11th time he's ever drilled double-digit shots from behind the arc.
