The Golden State Warriors are sitting atop the NBA Western Conference with a record of 47-9, best in the league. They are dominating their opponents, so it's understandable that they act a little cocky at times. Their supreme confidence was again on display during Wednesday's game against the Sacramento Kings.
After trailing by 3 points at the half, the Dubs hit their stride in the third quarter, obliterating the Kings by outscoring them 42-15, including a 22-0 run. During that run, Warriors guard Klay Thompson made three shots from deep. On one of them, launched from at least 30 feet out, Steph Curry started celebrating even before Thompson shot the ball.

Watch Curry throw his arms in the air before the ball leaves Thompson's hands. If Klay had missed, Curry might have looked silly, but when you're clearly destroying your opponent, I guess you can pretty much do whatever you want.
Thompson actually shoots his highest percentage from deep in the third quarter, averaging 49 percent for the season. With 17 points, he outscored the entire Kings team by himself, and he finished the night with 35 points and seven made 3-pointers.
