With 11.6 seconds remaining and the score tied at 97, the Warriors inbounded the ball from the left sideline. Curry came to the ball using a simple screen from David Lee and proceeded to work one-on-one against Avery Bradley. After milking the clock for a few seconds, Curry used a screen from Lee to force a Boston defensive switch on the left wing, before dancing a bit as he sized up Kris Humphries.
A quick left-to-right crossover created all the space Curry needed, and he stepped back into a long two that swished in. A potential game-winning three-pointer by Gerald Wallace was no good on the other end.
It's been a tough week for Humphries, who got posterized by Clippers forward Blake Griffin on Wednesday.
Curry finished with 19 points (on 7-for-18 shooting), seven rebounds and four assists. Andre Iguodala scored a team-high 22 points (on 9-for-14 shooting) and added seven assists, five rebounds and three steals for Golden State.
Jeff Green led all scorers with 24 points (on 11-for-17 shooting), and he added 11 rebounds and two assists for Boston. Jared Sullinger chipped in 21 points (on 9-for-16 shooting) and 11 rebounds off the bench for the Celtics.
Golden State improved to 25-14 with the win. Boston fell to 13-24 with their seventh straight loss. Video via YouTube user frank den
