Stephen Curry knocks down game winner from midrange (VIDEO)

Dec 12, 2013, 2:02 AM EDT

Dallas had a 10-point lead with 8 minutes left and still were up 6 with less than two minutes to go, but no lead is safe when Golden State is at home.

No lead is safe against Stephen Curry

Curry had a four-point play a minute before that allowed Golden State to get back from that 6 points down. Then with the game tied and after a Monta Ellis miss the Warriors were going to have the last shot — I love that they didn’t call a time out, I love that they ran a play rather than just isolate Curry (the pick-and-roll got a switch and put Shaun Marion on him).

Curry got to his spot, pump faked Marion out of his way, then drained the shot.

The win tied the Warriors with the Mavericks (and Suns) for the eight seed in the West.

    Believe it or not, this is the first game winner of Curry’s career.

    shouldnt there be a tech or fines for warriors players coming onto the court after that shot? no one called timeout!

      Great shot but I was thinking the same thing. What are the rules pertaining to that?

      The refs were enjoying the plethora of shots and the come-back just like the fans!

      Nobody cares about the team coming onto the court…..Did You See the SPLASH!!!

    So Steph Curry hits the game winner. I’m ok with that. Still 60 games left. What I’m not ok with is after Currys shot, Curry is on the other end, chest bumping bench players ON THE COURT. Mavs had no timeouts and didn’t have the chance for a long inbounds pass because Golden State players were on the court. Umm..THAT’S A TECHNICAL! Act like you’ve won a game before Warriors.

    Should have been a bench tech on GS, but awesome shot by Curry. GS got away with one there.

      Pointing out a bench celebration, after such a THRILLING finish, is kinda like:

      Angelina Jolie walking into your bedroom in an amazing outfit and you tell her to leave because you don’t like her choice of nail polish!

      Get outta here with that!!!

    MANE….This team is loaded with so many shooters, once Mark Jackson can instill more toughness and defense into their regimen,

    IF they can stay healthy….

    They have a good chance to compete for a chip in a couple years.
