Stephen Curry Nails Three-Quarter Court Buzzer-Beater vs. Spurs

Because the two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champ let one fly from 75-feet at the end of the first quarter in San Antonio and banked it in for a 75-foot 3-pointer.

"First game and I enjoyed playing with him", All-Star forward Kevin Durant told the media after the game. "And I think our guys just felt threatened on the road".

The Spurs have now won 11 straight at home and nine straight overall, the longest current winning streak in the league. Golden State defeated San Antonio by 39 points in their previous meeting, February 6 at Oracle Arena.

To beat the first quarter buzzer, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry threw up a shot from the opponent's 3-point line.

The Golden State Warriors are in the thick of the chase for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.

San Antonio instead improved to 42-29, drawing level with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the fifth-best record in the conference.

San Antonio cruised from there, leading by as much as 9 points in the payoff period.

The attack began when a Palestinian grabbed a gun from an Israeli near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank and then shot him. Netanyahu, who leads the most rightwing government in Israeli history, relies on support from settlers in the West Bank.

The Warriors had to rally in the second half after a sluggish start.

Golden State were without DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Iguodala, who both sat with injuries, but remained within two possessions in the final minute. "I don't know how well we handled them, but we didn't cave, that's for sure", Popovich said.

It took Andrew Bogut all of 80 seconds to make his mark in his first game back in the National Basketball Association.

For a team not picked to go far, they are moving in the right direction and getting better at just the right time. Bogut spent four seasons with Golden State before rejoining the team as a free agent weeks ago.

"He looks good. He is a big help", Curry said of Bogut, who played 10 minutes and finished with 7 points and 7 boards.
