Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all-time, and he’s probably the greatest *trick* shooter of all-time too. And ahead of the Golden State Warrior’s crucial play-in game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night, the NBA scoring champion pulled out the tricks.
One shot was pure sorcery. Curry tossed the ball very high up into the air, got a bounce, and the ball banked off the backboard into the hoop. This would kill in H-O-R-S-E.

That celebration suggests that Curry even surprised himself, which says a lot about the difficulty.
Curry also showed off some soccer skills to go with his shooting. He went with a header, then kicked a pass to his teammate, then received a kicked pass before draining a three.

The Warriors hope Curry can keep that excellence going into the game. The winner secures the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and moves on to face the Utah Jazz in the first round. The loser goes home.
