Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is an amazing shooter. Even impossible shots fall easily for Curry. But during Tuesday's night game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the two-time NBA MVP made a shot so difficult that a Pelicans coach gave him a high-five after he made it.
Late in the third quarter, the shot clock was ticking down during a Warriors possession and Curry had the ball. Before the clock expired, he launched a spinning step-back 3-point shot with a defender draped all over him. Of course, it didn't matter because Curry sank the shot with ease.
