While Steph Curry has rightfully claimed headlines with his scorching performances during the Golden State Warriors season-best four-game winning streak, Juan Toscano-Anderson deserves some credit.

During Saturday’s thrilling contest between the Celtics and Warriors, Toscano-Anderson sold out for an impact play.

With Boston gripping to a one-point lead with under six minutes remaining, Toscano-Anderson laid out for a loose ball near the sidelined that caused him to take a brutal tumble over the scorer’s table. Curry capitalized on Toscano-Anderson’s fierce hustle play by hitting a 3-pointer seconds later.
