Steph Curry’s shot-making ability has become the stuff of legend during his seven-plus years in the NBA. For some fans it’s virtually impossible to whittle down Curry’s long list of highlight-reel shots to the top one or two.
As Curry prepared to take on the Thunder in Oklahoma City, the location of one of his most memorable shots, the two-time reigning MVP was asked by reporters Monday which of his shots is his favorite.
After an extended pause, Curry revealed his selection.
“Probably Game 5 of the first Finals,” Curry said. “The three in the fourth quarter just because you know how big of a moment that is just trying to win a championship. It wouldn’t seem that spectacular, but it was a cool moment.”
Curry definitely went with substance over style. His choice came with the Warriors leading 97-89 with 1:25 left in the fourth against the Cavs in the 2015 Finals tied at 2-2. Curry released the shot well beyond the arc, and it helped the Warriors finish the Cavs in six games.
But to many fans, Curry’s most memorable shot came against the Thunder last season, when he pulled up from nearly 40 feet with 2.7 seconds left in the Warriors’ 121-118 thriller.
