After hittng a three in the third quarter, the real MVP stares down the Houston crowd, who were chanting M-V-P all night for their own James Harden.

May 24, 2015:
Golden State 115, Houston 80
Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry outfought Dwight Howard for an offensive rebound and set another 3-point mark in a dazzling second quarter display. The third was even better. The NBA MVP quickly quelled a mini Houston Rockets charge by adding a few more triples to his record. Curry nailed seven 3s and scored 40 points as the Golden State Warriors routed the Rockets 115-80 to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the Western Conference finals. The sharp-shooting Curry, who broke his 2013 record for the most 3-pointers made in a regular season with 286, has now drained the most treys in a single postseason. Reggie Miller set the mark in 2000, but Curry surpassed him in nine fewer games. It took Miller 22 contests to get to 59 3s. Golden State can sweep the series and book its first trip to the NBA Finals since 1975 on Monday. Curry's record-breaking 3 came at the 4:32 mark of the second. He took a few dribbles to his left and rose several feet from beyond the top of the arc to record his 60th trey of the postseason and give the Warriors a commanding 49-32 lead.
