Stephen Curry might just be the Big Daddy of all circus shotmakers in the NBA, as he reminded us after the Warriors’ win over Detroit.
We all know that Curry is the GOAT shooter. We also believe he’s definitely the greatest offensive weapon in the game today. There are things that he makes look easy that would take years for high school kids to emulate.
The likes of Luka Doncic have shown off their soccer skills at various points in their career. Steph, however, took it up a notch or two with a shot that would make HORSE seem an easy game. Just take a look at this underhanded 3-pointer that he made after the buzzer sounded last night:
Am I the only person that noticed @StephenCurry30 just made an underhand 3 pointer. Yeah the game was over but come on man. #stephencurry #goldenstatewarriors #nba #espn #SportsCenterTop10 #SportsCenter pic.twitter.com/OyejFLjET8

Stephen Curry notches another 40-point game in a win for the Warriors
The Warriors were able to take advantage of Aaron Gordon’s absence and Vucevic’s terrible shooting on the night. After trailing by 5 points, they rode Steph hard to come away with another W.
Stephen Curry had 40 points on 14-of-26 shooting from the floor. Curry was once again relentless at attacking the paint, going right at Vucevic and the Magic’s help defenders.
This also earned him the spacing to rain his characteristic 3-point barrage. Steph had his 17th career game with 10+ 3-pointers made – Klay Thompson is next on the list with 5.
The Warriors are now 14-12 for the season. They will be playing the Nets on Saturday night in their second matchup of the season. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant led them to an easy W on opening night, but the Warriors look a whole lot better at this point.
