Steph hits logo shot to beat third-quarter buzzer vs. Spurs originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Steph Curry hasn’t met a half-court shot he didn’t like, even when he’s having a subpar game.
With the Warriors trailing the San Antonio Spurs by 14 in the final seconds of the third quarter Saturday night, Curry took the inbound pass, dribbled a foot or two past the midcourt line and proceeded to sink a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer.
The shot cut the Spurs’ lead to 99-88 heading into the fourth quarter.
Curry had 21 points through three quarters, but was just 5-of-19 from the field, including 4-of-11 from 3-point range and 7-of-7 from the free-throw line.
While Curry’s numbers weren’t great, the shots he did hit Saturday were noteworthy. Prior to the game, he hit a ridiculously difficult tunnel shot from deep in the Chase Center stands, and then at the end of the first half, he turned around and started running back on defense before his first 3-pointer of the game went in.
