Curry Provides Buzzer-Beating Heroics in Win Over the Rockets

For the second night in a row, the Warriors went down to the wire. But this time, Stephen Curry made sure to send the home crowd home happy, knocking down a game-winning shot at the buzzer to lift the Warriors to a 105-103 triumph over the Rockets on Friday.

“With five seconds, you can get some space and take your time,” Curry said as he reflected on his first-ever game-winner as time expired. “I got to my spot and it’s about time I made one!”

Curry’s 20-foot step-back jumper capped a wild win for the Warriors, who trailed by as many as 15 points in the second quarter. Curry finished with 22 points and 12 assists, Jordan Poole scored 20 and Andrew Wiggins came through with 17 points as the Warriors grinded out a win a night after disappointing overnight defeat to the Pacers.

“That was the play, get the ball to Steph and get out of the way,” Head Coach Steve Kerr said. “A fitting end to a grind-out game that we really needed.”
