Watch: Stephen Curry hits 62-foot shot as time expires in third quarter

Saturday May 16th, 2015

The human highlight reel that is Stephen Curry, not to be outdone by his exploits earlier in Game 6 of the NBA's Western Conference semifinals, casually launched a three-quarter-court shot as time expired in the third quarter and made it, putting the Warriors up 76–68.

Mind you, Curry was precisely two quarters removed from another jaw-dropping highlight that may or may not have rendered Courtney Lee's ankle's useless for the rest of the night.

The stone-faced reaction of the Grizzlies' bench at the end tells the story of Memphis's night. Golden State went on a huge run after Curry made the shot, and won the game 108–95 to advance to the Western Conference finals.

Curry finished with 32 points.
