Stephen Curry finally made his first game-winner buzzer-beater shot. It’s funny how this moment came during the worst shooting slump of his whole 13 years of NBA career.
Curry, even tonight didn’t have a good shooting night again. Tonight against the Houston Rockets he shot 28.6% from the field goal on 6 of 21 shooting. Even from downtown, Steph shot a mere 4 of 13 which is 30.8%.
However, all great players know how to contribute in a game when they are having a bad night. Number 30 racked up 12 assists and 22 points in a clutch win over the Rockets.

The Golden State Warriors have lost 6 out of their last 10 games. This type of stretch has thrown Curry out of the MVP race. Before this slump, he and Kevin Durant were neck to neck in the MVP race.
But now Curry going through the worst slump of his career and KD is out with an injury, they both are now out of the MVP race.
As Stephen Curry made his first game-winner shot, let’s reminisce his other viral clutch shots
It is hard to believe that the greatest shooter of all time has never in his 13 years of illustrious career made a game-winner buzzer-beater shot.
However tonight even in a bad shooting night, Stephen Curry made his first-ever game-winner shot. 5 seconds were left in the ball game. The game was tied 103 apiece. Steph somehow made separation from Porter Jr. and then went to work as he was able to pull up a step-back on Porter Jr. and swished it at the buzzer.
After he made the shot, Curry was literally about to run off the court in excitement. But was caught by the bench players as everyone celebrated with the 2-time MVP.
Curry, after the game, was pumped. In his post-game interview, even he acknowledged that “It’s about time that I made one. That’s the first one” and then went on to shout in excitement.
The most famous Curry’s clutch shot was over the OKC. Curry already had 43 points and 11 threes, in overtime, Steph in the last second of the game pulled up a shot from near half-line and swished it for his 12th three-pointer of the night.
This shot against the OKC is still his most famous dagger, which was heard all around the world.
