Stephen Curry has struggled throughout the 2016 NBA Finals and has been the subject of much criticism.

He wasn't scoring at his same 2016 NBA MVP level and was getting killed on defense at times.

He finally looks like he has found a rhythm during Game 7 tonight.

Early in the third quarter, J.R. Smith tried to pull the same alley oop to LeBron James he did in Game 6 and Curry was having none of it, deflecting the lob and then going the other way to finish a layup over Kevin Love.

And then he had this three about a minute later for good measure.

Curry scored 5 of his 14 points in the third quarter to help the Warriors head into the fourth quarter with a 76-75 lead.
