Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry did it again.
Curry hit a game-winning 23-footer with two seconds to play to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 99-97 victory over the Boston Celtics at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California Friday night.
As you can see, Curry takes the inbounds pass from Andre Iguodala (much like he did one week ago when he gave it back to Iguodala, who beat the Atlanta Hawks at the buzzer), but this time he takes on Celtics’ guard, Avery Bradley, a fantastic defender, one-on-one. Curry gets the switch he’s looking for and nails the jumper over Kris Humphries.

Just before Curry’s winner, Jeff Green drove the hoop to tie the game at 97.
Gerald Wallace had a wild attempt to win the game at the buzzer, but his shot went well left.
Curry finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and four assists.
Iguodala scored a team-high 22 points, dished out seven assists, grabbed five rebounds and had three steals.
Green scored a game-high 24 point for the Celtics to go along with nine rebounds. Humphries had 16 points and 14 rebounds while Jared Sullinger came off the bench to score 21 points and grab 11 rebounds.
The Warriors are now 25-14 while the Celtics are 13-24.
