Steph Curry’s stunning 3-pointer from 33 yards earned the Golden State Warriors a 113-112 win over the Phoenix Suns.
Curry’s exploits helped the Warriors seal a fourth consecutive victory, as he latched onto Brandin Podziemski’s pass and produced a moment of magic to seal a tense game.
This was Curry’s 10th career-winning shot with less than five seconds on the clock, as he managed nine 3-pointers during the match and ended with 30 points.
I just tried to get it to him,” Podziemski said in quotes published by AP. “No matter how long it took.
The Warriors held an 84-82 lead heading into the fourth quarter, before Devin Booker turned the game on its head by giving the Suns a 112-110 advantage thanks to a turnaround jumper.
Aside from Curry’s exploits, Jonathan Kuminga scored a further 21 points, while Draymond Green added 15 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.
Meanwhile, Booker registered 32 points for Phoenix and Kevin Durant notched 24, in a case of what might have been for the Arizona outfit.
They had two chances to win the match after Curry’s 3-pointer, but Booker was fouled under the basket in the first instance, while Durant failed to get a shot in at the second attempt.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr explained that his side “were due” a bit of fortunate against the Suns after a series of tight matches against them in recent weeks.
“We were due,” he added. “We were due for one of these tight games to go our way. But the guys earned it. It didn’t just happen.
