Golden State Warriors

Marvel Moments of the Game: Curry turns into Hawkeye, Draymond drops the hammer, and Zion's Hulk dunk

The Smoothie King Center was transformed into the Marvel Universe tonight as the Golden State Warriors picked up a 123-108 win over the New Orleans Pelicans in the first-ever Marvel Arena of Heroes game.

For 48 minutes we got to see some of the NBA's best show off their basketball superpowers, headlined by Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Zion Williamson in a special Marvel-themed broadcast.

Green was crowned as the first Arena of Heroes Champion, finishing with 48 'Hero points' thanks to his stat-stuffing 10 points, 13 rebounds, 15 assists, three steals and two blocks.

...So we'll start with him.

Draymond drops the hammer

By the Hammer of Thor!

In the second quarter, Green was making plays like the God of Thunder, going through three Pelicans defenders to dunk the ball all the way back to Asgard.

I mean, in a game where he got 15 assists, you could probably call him Vision, but this dunk was too good to pass up.

Curry turns into Hawkeye from the 3-point line

Curry was at his sharp-shooting best in NOLA, doing his best Hawkeye impersonation, knocking down a game-high eight 3-pointers on 18 attempts on his way to 41 points.

Trading in the bow and arrow for his scorching hot right hand, Curry recorded his ninth 40-point game of the season and his sixth in the last 15 games.

Eric Bledsoe wanted no part of the Hawkeye show.

Zion channels Hulk

"Hulk Smash!"

With the new Captain America watching on, Zion hulked his way to the rim with the spin, before throwing down the ferocious two-handed jam.

In the third quarter, he smacked Curry's layup attempt against the backboard with the ease Hulk would throw a car.
