Stephen Curry buried the Oklahoma City Thunder 121–118 in overtime on Saturday night with a 38-foot three in the game’s final second.
Curry jogged down the floor and pulled up from deep to sink his 12th three-pointer of the game, tying an NBA record. During overtime, he also broke his own NBA single-season record for threes in a season with his 287th triple.
Curry finished with a game-high 46 points on 14-of-24 shooting. Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 37 points.
With 24 games to go, Curry is on pace to shatter his old record of 286 threes.
Golden State entered halftime down 11 and reportedly had Draymond Green going on a ‘profanity-laced tirade’ in the locker room, according to ABC’s Lisa Salters. After fighting their way back in the game, the Warriors tied it with 0.6 seconds left on two Andre Iguodala free throws, which followed a hectic 14-second sequence.
Golden State improved to 53–5 and became the fastest team in NBA history to clinch a playoff spot.
