Watch: Stephen Curry hits half-court buzzer beater, sets NBA record

Steph Curry making history from behind the arc

Stephen Curry did what only Stephen Curry can do at the conclusion of the first half Friday against the Indiana Pacers, setting an NBA record on a 48-foot buzzer-beating bomb. Curry pulled up just behind the half-court line to bank in the long distance heave. The basket, his 200th triple on the season, made him the first player in NBA history with four-straight seasons totaling 200 or more three-pointers.

Curry is well on pace to set another NBA record from downtown this season as well. He has 39 games left to surpass his own record for the most three-pointers made in a single season at 286.

The incredible half-court bomb followed Curry’s failed buzzer beater attempt at the end of the first quarter. He absolutely drained a nearly three-quarter-court heave, but let the shot go just moments after the buzzer sounded. Quite a way for Curry to welcome head coach Steve Kerr back to the sidelines.

Curry finished with his seventh career triple double—39 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds—in a 122–110 victory.

Golden State improved to 40–4 while Indiana fell to 23–20.
