Chef Curry started the NBA All-Star 2021 night with a stupendous three-point contest win. He defeated Mike Conley even as the latter dropped 28 points in the first round. Also, the league topper, Utah’s Donovan Mitchell, became a Chef Curry 3-point casualty because it was a clear Steph show out there.

What is an ASG without a little flavor of a showoff in it? The three-time NBA Champion used the stage to showcase his shooting prowess and did it with all the style and flavor.

He was a force in Q1 as Team LeBron won the quarter 40-39 and also the prize money that will go for a cause. Just as Curry started dropping bombs, he gained enough confidence to attempt a trademark no-look three.

Well, that conversion (Luka Doncic assist) gave them an early 7-point lead just as teammate Damian Lillard sat on the bench, watching in disbelief. Take a look –

Curry scored 12 points at 66.66% from the deep range, and all of his numbers came from dropping those long bombs. He certainly joined the party for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored his 11 early points on three massive dunks. 

Things that called for a chef dance

One of the greatest highlights of Curry’s show remained the ‘almost’ mid-court three-pointer off a LeBron James pass. It was as if Bron was just fooling around in the restricted area only to find Curry, which he successfully did. Just as LeBron converted his back pass, an open Curry took his chances from way behind the arc and converted an iconic three. Enjoy the clip –

This is how Curry ruled the show with his ever-smiling baby face and killer shooting. Coach Quin Snyder (Team LeBron) used him as much as possible to gain from that rhythm. Stay tuned, there is more on ASG to come to your plate.
