Watch: Chris Paul trolls Steph Curry with shimmy
Things are getting personal in the Western Conference Finals, and Chris Paul is in the middle of it.
During the third quarter of Game 5 of the Houston Rockets-Golden State Warriors playoff series on Thursday, Paul put the moves on Steph Curry and made a basket while being guarded by the two-time MVP.
As they headed down the court, CP3 wanted to make sure Curry knew that he had just been bested and did Curry’s shimmy move to him.

Curry seemed to grin in response.
Between what CP3 did and what Steve Kerr did in the second quarter, the mind games are strong in this one. Nothing like some great trash talk to take a series to another level.
Many fellow NBA players seemed to enjoy it.
YOOOOO @CP3 IM DEAD
