A server on the court accidentally recreated a famous scene from “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and tripped Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry to close out the first half of Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

After Curry attempted to defend a three-point shot from Mavericks forward Reggie Bullock, he began to run for his team’s basket. But before he could reach that side of the pitch, he fell. Curry had tripped over the waiter’s beer tray – ironically after the waiter tried to move him, possibly for safety reasons – and had been slow to get up at first, but he was walking fine by the time he got there. started heading for the locker room.


Many viewers immediately remembered an episode of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” where Larry David’s character stretched his legs during a Lakers game as Shaquille O’Neal walked onto the field and made stumble the big man from Los Angeles. O’Neal also referenced this scene during that game’s halftime show and joked that the salesman had to go because no one wanted a pretzel so badly.

Curry got a laugh out of it after the Warriors’ nine-point win gave them a 3-0 series lead. “There were 30 seconds left before half-time,” he said. “You order a drink, just wait until halftime. I don’t know why they needed it delivered right away. Luckily I was fine. This guy, he was doing his job, so hopefully ‘he got a big tip.
