Stephen Curry hits a three falling down in USA’s win over Mexico (VIDEO)


Stephen Curry got hot in the third quarter of USA’s win over Mexico on Saturday, when he scored 11 of his team-high 20 points to help blow the game open.

This particular shot was the most difficult — a three after pump-faking and then absorbing some contact from his defender, one that Curry almost certainly only threw up there because he believed a foul would be called.

It wasn’t, mainly because the FIBA officials sometimes have an interesting way of interpreting things. But Curry’s pure stroke got it to splash home nonetheless.
