Stephen Curry was a little too excited after hitting his first game-winning buzzer-beater against the Rockets, that he hilariously shrieked during his postgame interview.
For the majority of his career, Stephen Curry was criticized by his haters for never hitting a game-winning buzzer-beater. Yesterday night, the 2-time MVP managed to shut those narratives up by knocking down a long mid-range shot at the buzzer, helping GSW defeat the Rockets 105-103.
As soon as the shot sunk in, Chase Center erupted. The fans couldn’t stop their cheering, Steph and the Warriors were running around the court in absolute joy.

“It’s about time I made one! That’s my first one”
