No, we're here to shed some light on Denver Nuggets rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay, who despite taking the L from the Warriors last night had one of the first major "wow" moments of his NBA career. In the third quarter, Mudiay yo-yoed Curry back and forth around a pick before faking right and darting back to his left. Thinking Mudiay was headed to the right, Curry tried to cut him off, only to find Mudiay standing alone at the 3-point line. Curry was so far away that Mudiay had at least two seconds to set his feet, take a deep breath and knock down a 3-pointer.
