Steph Curry quickly reminded everyone who the GOAT 3-point shooter is, winning the 2021 NBA 3-Point Contest in thrilling fashion over Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley on Sunday in Atlanta, Ga.

The Warriors' superstar was the final contestant to shoot in the first round and he put on a show right away.

After Conley set the pace with 28 points in the opening round, Curry poured in a jaw-dropping 31 points.

Curry was barely touching the rim on some of his makes and the net wasn't even moving on others. It was an incredible show and he held the pose on the final triple.

Curry, Conley and Boston Celtics wing Jayson Tatum advanced to the final round. Tatum started off with 17 and Conley topped that with 27 points.

Curry entered the final rack of balls with 23 points, needing five to beat Conley. He was at 26 with one money ball left and sank it to take home his second 3-Point Contest crown.

It was an impressive showing that left a lot of his current and former teammates, as well as family members, coaches and NBA peers, in disbelief.

Curry now is the seventh player in NBA history to win the 3-Point Contest multiple times, joining Larry Bird, Craig Hodges, Jeff Hornacek, Jason Kapono, Mark Price and Peja Stojaković.
