For me, the play of the game was that 3 by Harrison Barnes near the end of the 4th qtr. Just an amazing play. The replay from the camera at midcourt had a great angle and showed Barnes setting the pick, stepping towards the 3pt line with his back to the hoop, and Curry passing it from under the hoop before Barnes had even turned around. The Dubs run some amazing plays. And that one worked to perfection. Huge shot for Barnes.

As many scintillating 3s and other baskets Steph made last night, that Barnes 3 with 50 seconds to go in regulation was the most important bucket of the night IMO. He misses there (which he's been doing for most of the playoffs), and it's highly likely the series is tied 2-2.

And for those few misguided individuals who wonder why Mark Jackson has yet to get a coaching gig, that play is something he could've never drawn up. Only a keen basketball mind can draw that up knowing the defense will collapse on Steph and leave Barnes to double team the shooter in the corner.
