(Golden State Warriors)
One of the greatest showmen in sports history — Stephen Curry.

Curry drilled a dagger three with 0.7 seconds left and the Golden State Warriors took down the Phoenix Suns in a 113-112 thriller Sunday (PHL) for their sixth victory in seven games. The Suns’ three-game winning streak was also snapped thanks to Curry, as the Dubs make it four straight of their own.
The Warriors trailed the Suns 112-110 with 3.3 seconds to play, and the former two-time MVP broke free to get the inbound pass, turned around, and casually made a long go-ahead three. Curry finished with 30 points, nine rebounds, and six assists.

Jonathan Kuminga contributed 21 points for the Dubs, while Draymond Green had 15 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds.

Gary Payton II returned for Golden State after missing 16 games due to a left hamstring strain and finished with 11 points.

Devin Booker led Phoenix with 32 points, and former Warrior Kevin Durant contributed 24. The Suns had two chances to win after Curry's three-pointer, but Booker was fouled under the basket, leaving 0.6 on the clock. On the second try, Durant couldn't get a shot off as the Warriors seal the win.
As expected, the two teams went back and forth in the clutch, not gaining any separation from each other. Booker pushed the Suns to the aforementioned 112-110 lead with 35 seconds remaining off of a turnaround jumper, before Curry had the final say for the Warriors.
Bradley Beal helped out with 15 markers and six rebounds while Grayson Allen tallied 10 points for Phoenix.
