The Golden State Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 111-95 Monday night. Warriors point guard Steph Curry scored 23 points on 7-of-12 shots from deep, and he seemed to get back into his groove. The two-time reigning MVP also did something fans had not yet seen him do this season—dunk the ball.

Early in the first quarter, Curry stole the ball and went in alone on a fastbreak. The 6-foot-3 guard decided that after 70 games this season, it was time for his first dunk. The four-time All-Star threw down a two-handed jam, then hung and spun on the rim to enjoy the moment. After his feet were back on the court, he gave a little dance move and was congratulated by his teammates.
In a league where players in the guard position are getting more athletic, it’s rare to see one go 70 games without a dunk. Curry is known more for shooting the ball, but he wanted fans to know that he can still get up. Curry is averaging 25 points, six assists and four rebounds a game.
