Stephen Curry started to trend as he made incredible “how did he make that shots?” and great plays.
We all know that Stephen Curry makes some impossible and ridiculous shot that goes in and we all become clueless about how it went in.
He did the same in tonight’s match against the Celtics.
Stephen showed some flashy moves on Boston forward Grant Williams inside the three-point line as he tried to guard Steph.
However, Stephen did his step-back move shooting a three-point shot with a quick pump fake while drawing contact in the process.
That ridiculous shot got in along with a foul call giving Curry a point advantage.
STEPHEN CURRY ARE YOU SERIOUS?? 🤯

Next for the Warriors
Despite Curry and the Warrior’s loss, the point guard continued to be one of the greatest entertainers in sports as he put on a show in Boston.
Becoming the talk of the town due to outstanding scoring and plays has outshined the loss they got.
He twisted his left ankle and still stayed to play through the injury shows how much he loves to play.
But this might be bad news for the Warriors as he is needed in the court and injury might prevent that from happening.
But if he becomes available, his incredible plays will be one to watch as GSW faces his brother’s team Philadelphia Sixers next.
