But let’s go thru pretty much every crucial possession from Game 2 from DRAYMOND’S point of view so you can see what he sees: what makes him such a brilliant passer.

Bonus Video – Steph Curry Game 2 NBA Finals

Steph Curry is renowned for his shooting, but you may have heard some analysts talking about his gravity. What is that, exactly? Well, it’s almost the “gravitational pull” that he has both with and without the ball. With the ball: coming off screens of course he’s a huge threat to make shots from anywhere and routinely makes them from 30+ ft from the basket. Without the ball of course he’s a huge spot-up threat as well. But you’ll see even more than that in this video: the threat of his shooting ability which makes Kyle Lowry stay with Steph in transition and let Draymond run right by him for a layup. The screens Steph SETS that free up Shawn Livingston and co. for layups. The movement off down screens – the constant starting and stopping, magical maneuvering around the floor that often attracts 2 or 3 defenders and leaves a teammate wide open. You’ll see the impact Steph has with or without the ball, in or outside the box score!
