When it comes to the most crucial moments of the most crucial games, no one performs better than Steph Curry. In the last ten years, the Golden State Warriors superstar owns five of the 15 highest-scoring fourth quarters in the NBA Finals.

Well, well, well. Isn’t that interesting! He’s also joined on the list by Kevin Durant, who makes three appearances.
