Using an Aaron Wiggins off-ball screen, Steph Curry created a sliver of space between his defender and the perimeter and hit a right-wing three-pointer that served as the dagger for the Golden State Warriors. The 26-foot three-pointer – Curry’s eighth and final one of the night – expanded the Warriors’ lead to eight points over the Oklahoma City Thunder with 2:35 left in the game. It’s a shot Thunder fans have grown accustomed to throughout the years.
Led by Stephen Curry's 38 points (8-14 3pt FG), eight rebounds and 12 assists, the Warriors defeated the Thunder, 128-120. Klay Thompson added 28 points (6-14 3pt FG), seven rebounds and three assists for the Warriors in the victory, while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander tallied 31 points, four rebounds and seven assists for the Thunder in the losing effort. The Warriors improve to 26-24, while the Thunder fall to 24-26.
Two days after setting the NCAA women's basketball career record for 3-pointers, Oklahoma Sooners guard Taylor Robertson had another major life highlight: meeting Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, the NBA's all-time 3-point leader. Robertson broke the record with her 498th 3-pointer Saturday in Oklahoma's 86-78 loss against the Iowa State Cyclones in Ames, Iowa.
