Steph Curry continued his mission to become a one man highlight reel last night during the Golden State Warriors' encounter with the LA Clippers, executing a dribble and three-point shot combo so perfect it was described by the game's co-commentator as potentially "the greatest move I've ever seen live."

What a play

The way Curry has been playing this season - bamboozling NBA defenses throughout the league on a regular basis - we shouldn't really be surprised by anything the MVP-candidate comes up with. But sometimes there are moments that you just have to stand back and applaud.

Curry's mazy move was enough to leave Warriors head coach Steve Kerr clutching his head in disbelief, and, when you consider it came against one of the best defenders in the game in the shape of Chip Paul and ended with an immaculate dafe-away three point shot, you can understand why.

It wasn't just Kerr who was left in awe after Curry's play during the third quarter of Sunday night's action at the ORACLE Arena - the entire arena reacted in exactly the same way as they watched it all unfold. 

Anyway, rather than us attempting to describe the magic moment, check it out for yourselves...and then spend the next week trying to pull it off in your backyard.

I don't what to love more. Curry's behind the back dribble. CP3's desperate swipe at the ball. Curry retreating to get in range for the fade-away shot. Or Steve Kerr's reaction.

All in all it was a play that would sit in number one spot on Sport Center's top 10 list most weeks.

Curry's season

Steph Curry has been playing like a man possessed this season, helping the Warriors to an NBA-leading 49-12 record. He has become one of the best shooters in the league whilst systematically humiliating players with NBA 2k-like moves like that one above.

His MVP candidacy is growing by the day and if he can keep his form going through to the playoffs there is no reason why Golden State cannot be challenging right through to the NBA Finals. I mean who doesn't want to see a play like this come Game Seven.

What do you think NBA fans? Is Curry this year's MVP, who does he have to beat to get that title? And can you think of a highlight better than this one from this season? Let us know in the comments section below...
