Steph Curry has once again shown why he’s regarded as the greatest shooter in basketball history after a breathtaking play for Golden State.
The Warriors welcomed Aussie big man Andrew Bogut back into the side for his first game with the franchise since 2016, as they took on the San Antonio Spurs.
However, it was an absolutely mind-blowing play from Curry at the end of the first quarter that sent social media into a frenzy.
The Warriors guard decided to try his luck after collecting an inbound pass from back court with less than two seconds on the clock.
With time almost up, Curry hurled a three-quarter court shot from his team’s own three-point arc, stunning the home crowd in San Antonio as it went in off the glass.
As astonishing as the basket was, the regularity with which Curry seems to pull off such moments of magic is almost unbelievable.

Curry looked comfortable having Bogut back as the pair combined for a superb moment early in the game.
The Aussie star was rushed into the Warriors’ starting lineup for Monday’s game against the Spurs and he took just 80 seconds to make an impact.
The 34-year-old hooked up with Curry for an epic alley-oop in the second minute of play, marking the Aussie’s first points on his return.
Following his NBL MVP stint with the Sydney Kings, Bogut landed in California on Saturday and was expected to take a few days to settle in and wait for the Warriors to end their four-game road trip.
However, an injury to All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins saw the Aussie rushed back in for the game with the Spurs.
Bogut was an integral part of the Warriors’ 2015 championship team but they traded him in 2016 to clear salary space to sign All-Star Kevin Durant.
