Stephen Curry nails 61-foot three pointer in Golden State Warriors loss to San Antonio Spurs
The two-time MVP and three-time NBA champion has a penchant for the extraordinary.
By now, basically the whole world knows about Stephen Curry’s three-point shooting.
The three-time NBA champion is one of the best sharpshooters the league has ever seen and at 31, he is currently third in all-time made three-pointers in NBA history.
The only-ever unanimous MVP was at it again against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night when he drilled some a buzzer-beating three-pointer.
But this wasn’t just any three-pointer, this was from 61-feet out. The NBA say that it’s the longest field goal made this season in the league.
Take a look at the footage below as Curry pulled off the seemingly impossible.
“I might be delusional, but every time I shoot it, I feel like it’s going in,” Curry said after the game. “You kind of know right away whether it has a chance or not. Some of them are in and out, it’s close, whatever. That one felt great, I was running after [it]. A cool way to end the quarter, I just wish we had gotten the win, too.”
Unfortunately, the Golden State Warriors would fall 111-105 to the San Antonio Spurs and Curry 25 points, seven rebounds and eight assists.
While Curry did nail six three-pointers on the night, that came from an astounding 18 attempts.
Curry is one of four players who has hit multiple 50-footers since 2009-10. With that shot, Curry now has four and is tied with Zach Randolph for the most in the last 20 seasons.
Curry is well known to practice his long-range efforts before and after games, but even this is quite unbelievable for him.
