Steph Curry told us all about it back in 2013.
If there were five seconds left in a game and you needed to design a play for one guy to take the shot and win it all, who would it be? Curry ranked himself No. 2, behind a guy named Michael Jordan (whoever he is).
On Friday, the three-time NBA champion sealed what was too close a game for the Warriors with a game-winning jump shot to seal a 105-103 win for Golden State.
This was Steph’s eighth career winning game.

Steph Curry’s career winning shots
Warriors vs. Mavericks (December 11, 2013)
The best part of this game winner is the composure Curry had to hit Marion with a fake flick to create an open look and calmly knock down a mid-range jumper to put the Warriors up with 1.5 seconds left.
The shot also capped an 18-point comeback for the Warriors.
Warriors vs. Celtics (January 10, 2014)
The play engineered by coach Mark Jackson forced the Celtics’ Kris Humphries to challenge the Golden State star with a game-winning jump shot. Humphries had no chance.
“Mom there goes that man!”
Warriors vs. Mavericks (April 1, 2014)
Curry’s second game-winning goal against the Mavericks in less than six months.
Curry hit a tie-breaking jump shot in the final second of overtime to seal a 122-120 Dubs win. He finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds on the night.
Warriors vs. Magic (December 3, 2014)
Curry extended the Golden State Warriors’ winning streak to 10 games by hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with just 2.2 seconds remaining in the team’s 98-97 victory over the Orlando Magic in 2013-14.
“It’s kind of a thrill that all players love to experience,” Curry said. “Especially at home when you can do that and get a big win, you remember those moments.”
Warriors vs. Thunder (February 27, 2016)
Probably the most famous and well-known of all Curry’s game winners. It spawned announcer Mike Breen’s iconic double whammy, which has been imitated in the years since.
With 0.6 seconds remaining in overtime and the score tied at 118-118 against the host Oklahoma City Thunder, Curry did what Curry does: he hit a shot from another stratosphere.
