There is no getting around it. Curry bewildered Paul with a behind the back dribble that had the Clippers point guard off balance.
NBA fans and players have subsequently all fallen over themselves and congratulated Curry on a sumptuous piece of play, but what they should remember is the facts. And you will be able to work them out when you really study the video.
