Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard might not have thought much of Stephen Curry's offensive rebound against him on Saturday night, but it might end up lingering as the defining moment of the series for just about everyone else on Earth.

Marcus Thompson II of Bay Area News Group summed up the moment nicely in his piece from Saturday night.

This play perfectly illustrated the reality the Rockets had to deal with -- no one was stopping Curry on Saturday...Curry's performance in Game 3 was unreal. It wasn't just that he set the record for most 3-pointers in a single postseason (passing Reggie Miller's 58). Or that he put his team up 3-0 in the Western Conference finals, one win from playing for a title. What Curry did was take the heart from the Rockets. The way he imputed his will on the game, and on this series, was the stuff of legend.

Put simply, Curry wanted it more on that play; as a leader, Curry made Howard look more Clark Kent than Superman on his own turf in the domain he's supposed to control.

At this point, it's difficult to come up with anymore words for Curry and yet his play continues to make hyperbole almost impossible. Tom Ziller's most recent piece on Curry is a pretty good resource for those still grasping at straws to find the right words for Curry. But Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News seemed to capture the essence of what makes Curry stand out in a world of prima dona superstars made worse by social media.

It’s situational arrogance; it’s humble greatness; it’s a quieter version of what Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson all had, and Curry has it now.

We're watching something that special. And after tonight, we could be celebrating that greatness making its way to the Finals.
