Steph Curry hits game-winning shot for Golden State Warriors against Oklahoma City Thunder, ties NBA record for three-point shots in one game

It was another record-breaking day for Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, as his game-winning shot with 0.6 seconds to go in overtime gave the Dubs a 121-118 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The 32-foot shot was his 12th three-pointer of the game, tying the record for most ever in an NBA game - the mark had previously been set by Kobe Bryant in 2003 and Donyell Marshall in 2005. Curry himself had knocked down 11 long balls on two separate occasions.

Curry scorches in record-equalling show

Golden State star Steph Curry has scored a dozen three-pointers to tie the NBA all-time record.

Curry previously set the record for most three-pointers in a season last year with 286, but his 11th triple of the day saw him eclipse that mark with a staggering 24 games left in the season. 

The Thunder led by ten points at the end of the first quarter and kept the lead at each interval, before Andre Iguodala hit a pair of free throws at the very end of the fourth to tie the game 113-113. 

Oklahoma City started the extra period brightly before star player Kevin Durant fouled out, leaving the Thunder without their top scorer - Durant had 37 points before racking up his sixth foul. Curry led all scorers with 46, and has averaged 39.6 points across his last five games as Golden State continue their stranglehold on the season. 

The win moves the Warriors to 53-5 on the year as they chase the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' record of 72 regular season wins.
