Well. That happened.
The Golden State Warriors, fueled by Steph Curry’s 46 points, delivered a heartbreaking 121-118 overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The official stat book reads that Curry’s final dagger was launched from 32 feet away. You could say it was shot from Moore, the parking lot, wherever. You know how far away it was? He let the shot go with 2.8 seconds left. The clock read 0.6 when he drilled it. That’s far. The actual distance was 38.4 feet.
You could talk about Kevin Durant incredible 37-point performance. Or the fact that he fouled out within the first minute of overtime. You could talk about how Russell Westbrook did an amazing job on stepping up in place of Durant, finding the open man cutting to the basket. You could talk about his amazing denial defense throughout the game. There’s so many things to discuss, but all of them pale in comparison to Curry’s absurdity and how it left OKC in the dust. Thunder coach Billy Donovan couldn’t get caught up in the insanity of the game. Instead, he looked on the bright side.
