OAKLAND (CBS Sports) — Stephen Curry is a superstar. That much is undeniable at this point. The Denver Nuggets don’t have one, and their critics, of which there are many, believe that is why they will not be successful in the playoffs.

The Golden State Warriors won Game 3 on Friday night because they have Curry, and he set the tone. The Nuggets would loop through the screen, pick him up, contest the shot. Curry would re-set, side-step, and take a contested three. A contested, side-step three is a horrible shot. It’s never good. It should not fall consistently.

But Curry is a superstar. And this is his time. The playoffs were made for players like Curry to arrive, step up and make their name, declare their superstardom.
