Video: Warriors' Stephen Curry nails game-winner over Celtics' Kris Humphries

Warriors guard Stephen Curry hit a game-winning jumper with 2.1 seconds left to lift Golden State to a 99-97 home victory over Boston on Friday.

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.
