Stephen Curry got two chances. He missed the first and delivered on the second.
The New Orleans Pelicans had Game 3 in the bag. In front of a crazy home crowd, the Pelicans led by 20 points at the start fourth quarter. With 5:50 left, New Orleans led by 17 points. That's when Golden State went on an incredible run powered by a small ball lineup. Curry sent it to overtime, where the Warriors would win 123-119.
This Curry shot is going to be remembered for a long time. Like, how is this possible?

This wasn't a game the Warriors were supposed to win:
Everyone on Twitter basically lost their minds:
I don't even know how that Curry 3 was possible. It wasn't physics

the magic of Steph is you think HOW DID HE MAKE THAT and OF COURSE HE MADE THAT at the same damn time.

Curry finished the night with 40 points and nine assists on 10-of-29 shooting from the field and 7-of-18 shooting from three-point range. The Warriors out-scored the Pelicans 39-19 in the fourth quarter to force OT. What a game.
