At the end of the third quarter in Game 6 between the Warriors and the Grizzlies, Golden State got a defensive stop, and with just a few ticks remaining on the clock, Stephen Curry ended up with the ball in his hands.
He launched a 3/4-court bomb — from 62 feet away, to be exact — and just like so many of Curry’s shots from long range, it seemed effortless in the way it splashed home.
It was the longest shot Curry has ever made in an NBA game, but it was far from one that was lucky.
Curry was asked if he practices that shot during his postgame press conference following his team’s 108-95 win that clinched the series, and sent Golden State to the Western Conference Finals.
“Every. Day. And that’s not a lie,” Curry said.
