Golden State Warriors’ star Steph Curry is renowned for making a whole lot of crazy long–distance shots, and he did that yet again in their first game of the 2018-19 NBA playoffs Saturday night. Against the Los Angeles Clippers, Curry hit an absolutely ridiculous shot in the third quarter, draining one from beyond the three-point arc while falling down:

That’s just unfair. And it’s part of the overall excellence Curry displayed in this game. With just over six minutes left in the fourth quarter, he had game highs in both points (36) and rebounds (15), plus six assists and a 10-for-14 shooting mark from the field (8-of-11 from deep, 8-of-9 from the line). So there was a lot of quantity here in addition to the quality of this particular highlight.
