When the Splash Brothers get heated it seems like nothing can slow them down.
And there is no worse feeling for fans of an opposing team than watching Curry and Thompson heat up from downtown.
These two guys are lethal from beyond the three-point line.

In fact, when you look at the list of players with single postseasons with 70+ three-pointers made, Curry and Thompson are all over that list.
Thompson has done it twice, in 2016 and 2019.
Meanwhile, Curry has achieved this feat five times: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019, and this year.
The good news for Boston Celtics fans is that Thompson has been a bit inconsistent in these Finals.
Yet if he turns things around and hits his stride again, the Celtics need to watch out and prepare for the worst.
Watching Curry and Thompson dominate from beyond the three-point line is a blast to watch – unless your team is playing against them.
They work super well together and really do perform like brothers, complementing each others’ style and always working as a cohesive unit.
However, right now Thompson isn’t in the zone like usual.
He put up 15 points in Game 1 but only 11 in Game 2.
Thankfully for the Warriors, they were able to pull out a huge win in Game 2 so the series is tied.
However, there is no doubt that Thompson isn’t satisfied with his performance thus far and is looking to get back into a good rhythm.
The pressure will be on Wednesday night as the Warriors move to Boston for Game 3.
If Curry and Thompson start shooting like only they can then things could get awfully complicated and stressful for the Celtics, even at home.
