Stephen Curry is the best shooter in the NBA and thanks to his partnership with the Nothing But Nets charity, his accuracy is actually saving lives.

Before the Warriors ended their series with the Blazers on Wednesday night, with the MVP scoring 29 points while making 10-of-20 from the field, Curry and the NBA shared his shootaround on Facebook Live and teamed with the malaria fighting charity to donate three mosquito proof nets for every basket he made.

The promotion was a part of the Golden State star’s “Call Your Shot” campaign with Nothing But Nets, which challenges fans to donate and to increase awareness of malaria by filming themselves making trick shots, and challenging friends to do the same.
