Stephen Curry once again showed why he is considered the greatest shooter of all time in the Golden State Warriors Sunday night game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. In a pivotal matchup with playoff implications for both teams, Curry’s epic no-look three-pointer in the second quarter was a game-changer.
The score was tied at 52 apiece when Curry, using a Draymond Green screen at the top of the three-point line, drove toward the left wing and handed the ball to Kevon Looney.
Moving towards the corner, Curry received the ball back from Looney and used another screen to get just enough time to release the shot. Falling over the baseline and yet confident, Curry turned to face the crowd, watching as the ball dropped through the net without touching the iron.
This play exemplified Curry’s abilities as a player. He is unmatched in his work without the ball, allowing him to get shots up despite being heavily guarded by opposition defenses. Even though he had not hit a three all night, his confidence in his shooting abilities was unshakeable. Curry’s shot put the Warriors up by two points going into halftime, highlighting the importance of the game for both teams.
Curry’s no-look three was a testament to his skill, precision, and confidence. As one of the greatest players of all time, he continues to inspire and amaze fans around the world with his incredible talent and dedication to the sport. As the playoffs approach, Curry’s leadership and prowess on the court will be crucial for the Warriors’ success.
