Steph can't help but smile after draining go-ahead 3-pointer

Warriors' Steph Curry

Sometimes, Steph Curry can even impress himself.

That appeared to be the case when he drained a go-ahead 3-pointer with 13.4 seconds remaining in the Warriors' 119-116 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday at Chase Center.

Curry cracked a wide, mischievous smile after giving the Warriors the lead with his big-time bucket.

The 33-year-old turned the ball over on Golden State's preceding possession, then missed a chance to give the Warriors the lead 8.2 seconds before he made the go-ahead 3. Kevon Looney kept the play alive with his offensive rebound, and Curry made no mistake the second time around.

"I think [Andrew Wiggins] and Loon chased it down, threw it to Draymond [Green]," Curry said of the go-ahead basket. "Me and him and our connection, he knew exactly where I was gonna go and got it to me on time. And obviously we live with that shot, and it was a big one."

Curry finished the night with 36 points on 11-of-25 shooting, including just 3-of-13 on 3-pointers. He now has scored at least 30 points in every game this month, and he scored 30-plus in 13 of 15 in April.

When the ridiculous becomes routine, sometimes all that's left to do is smile. Curry knows that full well.
