Stephen Curry sinks Thunder with long-range jumper from outer space

You won’t see many game-winning shots like the one reigning MVP Stephen Curry hit on Saturday night to defeat the Thunder 121-118 in overtime.

Curry, who casually dropped another 46 points on the game like it was no big deal, on a 14-of-24 shooting performance, didn’t need the extra seconds to get a better shot or to hook up a teammate who was closer to the basket.

Nope, instead, Curry elected to just pull up from nearly 40 feet out and roughly 2.5 seconds remaining in the game. And you probably know where this is going.

Curry, of course, celebrated like a boss after draining the shot and lifting the Warriors to victory.
