NBA Twitter reacts to Steph Curry’s clutch shots in Warriors’ OT win
Steph Curry’s night from long range began with a wild miss as he drilled a ball boy with a heave from the tunnel in warmups, but he dialed in his shot and came through in the clutch for the Warriors as Golden State pulled out a 125-116 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Chase Center.
The Bucks, who were without Giannis Antetokounmpo, overcame a 13-point deficit in the third quarter and held a late lead over the Warriors in the dying seconds of the game. Jrue Holiday hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 32.1 seconds remaining, but Curry tied the game with a 3-pointer of his own with with 19.0 seconds remaining.
Klay Thompson and Curry dominated the overtime period, and Curry drilled another three to put the Warriors up seven with two minutes to play.
The win snapped a three-game slide for the Warriors, which had put the team in danger of sliding down the Western Conference standings.

When Curry is the main guy and Klay is the second option with everyone else playing their part, that's when the Warriors are unstoppable. Kerr needs to move with that formula for the remainder of this season to save this team.

There are no teams in the NBA who scare the @warriors. It’s the single greatest thing going for them. Despite all their issues they could still beat anyone else in a 7 game series.
