Stephen Curry is proven to be deadly in the third quarter

New Orleans Pelicans v Golden State Warriors

Stephen Curry is the reigning, back-to-back MVP and last year he became the first man to ever unanimously win that award.

Whenever the point guard does something special, it should come as no great surprise.

However, with every passing week, Chef Curry seems to cook something up for us.

This time, another notable moment for Curry came in the Warriors' 138-109 rout of the Phoenix Suns where he exploded for 20 points in the third quarter.

Curry would lead the Dubs in scoring with 31 overall, but there seems to be a recurring trend with the third quarter for the sharpshooter.

According to Warriors insider Monte Poole, that was Curry's 16th time of scoring 20 points in a single quarter, and nine of those occasions have come in the third, like last night's.

Bar a defeat to the Rockets earlier this week, the Warriors are flying right now and Curry has been more than playing his part.

The 28-year-old is producing an average of 26.9 points a night this term and has also helped Kevin Durant settle in seamlessly to the Bay Area.

So much so, that KD is the leading candidate in the MVP race at present.

However, Curry's influence in the third quarter cannot be denied, and it lends credence to his immense ability to take games over approaching the stretch.
