After trading buckets with the Boston Celtics throughout the first half, Steph Curry sent the Golden State Warriors into halftime with the lead in signature fashion.
Following a scramble that featured a pair of turnovers in the final seconds of the second quarter, the Warriors’ eight-time All-Star received the ball as the clock ticked down. Before the halftime buzzer sounded at TD Gaden, Curry pulled up from beyond the half-court line and buried an improbable jumper from long distance.
Curry’s last-second heave gave the Warriors a one-point advantage heading into the locker room at halftime against the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics.

Despite Curry’s thrilling jumper at the end of the second quarter, the Celtics got the last laugh. The Celtics built a late comeback in the fourth quarter pushing the game to overtime. In overtime, the Celtics ran away with the game over the Warriors, 121-118.
Curry finished the game with a team-high 29 points on 9-of-25 shooting from the field with six made triples to go along with seven assists and four boards in 43 minutes.
Curry and the Warriors will be back on the court on Friday for the second leg of a road back-to-back against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
