This strikes me as the type of thing Steph made up in the middle of doing it. I’m not even sure you could practice that move if you wanted to: it’s pure instincts, and Joakim Noah would probably┬ánot always be available for posing on his heels like a damn deer in headlights.

Anyway, the Warriors lost for the first time in 20 home games, and it was kind of Steph’s fault because he picked up his dribble and threw a pass away toward the end of regulation when he should have just allowed the Bulls to foul him, as they were going to have to. Oh well. You can’t win all of your home games, despite the Warriors best efforts to prove otherwise. And if you are going to lose, you can always lose in style, as Steph proved last night.
