Curry, the Golden State Warriors superstar, provided a dramatic preview for his seventh All-Star Game appearance when he sank his final 3-pointer to edge Utah's Mike Conley for the title on Sunday night. Curry also won the 3-point content in 2015.
Like hitting a final-second game-winner, Stephen Curry won Sunday’s 3-point shooting contest by draining his last shot of the contest — the money ball. Curry’s last make from the right corner counted for two points and led the Warriors superstar past Utah’s lefty point guard Mike Conley, 28-27. Conley would have been the first southpaw to win the contest.
The 2021 3-Point Contest was flush with quality shooters (including runner-up Mike Conley and Jayson Tatum) but was there ever a doubt as to who would take home the hardware in Atlanta? Curry is regarded as the greatest shooter in NBA history for a reason. Conley put up a good fight as he battled Curry for the three-point crown.
