4. Curry’s dagger three in Game 3

Let me remind you, all five of these top moments could be in any particular order on any given day. For me, though, his fourth-best moment would have to be the cold-blooded corner three-pointer in the final seconds of Game 3 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

With the clock winding down, Curry missed a game-tying three-point shot from the deep wing, but Marreese Speights thankfully grabbed the offensive rebound, kicked it back out to Curry, who had moved to the corner. Curry threw up a prayer from the thin corner as Anthony Davis rammed into him.

At the time, the Warriors were the one seed in the Western Conference, up to two games to none against the New Orleans Pelicans, and a win by the Warriors would put the Pelicans in a hole of three games to none that is nearly impossible to come back from.

Curry’s dagger in the final seconds put a knife in the heart of the Pelicans, taking back momentum, and leading the Warriors to a victory in overtime. Curry would go on to leading the Warriors to a series sweep in the next game.
