Curry: Criticism of Warriors from retired stars 'a little annoying'
Sunday February 28th, 2016

The Warriors forced overtime against the Thunder on Saturday night with a wild 14-second sequence to close out regulation.

With 14.5 seconds left, Klay Thompson drove to the basket and laid the ball in to bring the score to 103–101 Oklahoma City. On the ensuing inbound pass, Kevin Durant was double-teamed by the Warriors and threw the ball away to a pair of defenders. Golden State then rushed up the floor and used the final possession to earn two free throws after Andre Iguodala was hacked in the final second of regulation. 

Iguodala made them both.

This frantic finish wasn’t the best highlight from Oklahoma City, though. That belonged to Stephen Curry after the MVP drained a game-winning three-pointer with 0.6 seconds left from 38.4 feet away for a 121–118 Warriors victory.
