One preseason game in, and Curry already has a top contender for his 2015-16 highlight reel.


Yes, that is the reigning MVP and NBA champion, going behind-the-back in transition before setting up for a three-pointer. While the shot is in the air, Curry sets up to high-five NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who is on the bench.

The Warriors are back in action Thursday night at the Trail Blazers.
