Stephen Curry’s jumper with 0.1 left beats Mavericks in overtime (VIDEO)

Apr 2, 2014, 12:01 AM EDT

Stephen Curry does it again.

With the game tied 120-120 and less than 15 seconds left in overtime, it all started when Jermaine O’Neal blocked/grabbed a Monta Ellis driving floater (it was a borderline goaltend but a good no call) then the Warriors didn’t call a time out, got the ball to Stephen Curry and let him create. Curry probed on the left side and after everyone cleared out he was isolated on Jose Calderon, was able to create a little space going left and all Curry needs to get off his shot is a little space. Bucket with 0.1 seconds left. Ball game.

If I were the Mavericks I would have doubled Curry — yes, the Warriors have other dangerous shooters, but you don’t let Curry get the last shot. This is why no timeout was brilliant for Golden State, the Mavs didn’t have time to set up a defensive plan.

The loss drops Dallas back to the nine seed, half a game behind Memphis and Phoenix. This is a blow to them.

The win helps keep Golden State solidly in the six slot (they had been closing in Portland, who has played better with LaMarcus Aldridge back).

      I agree. The Mavs were robbed of at least another overtime period.

    Clutch

    Kinda misleading. I was wondering how he could shoot with 0.1 seconds left.

    I’d be irate about that missed goaltending call if I were a Mavs fan. They should’ve at least made the call and reviewed it to confirm. What’s the point of being able to review these types of plays under 2 minutes if you’re not going to use it?

    Nice shot by Curry, btw… that quick release will get ya.

    So both the spice and the player leave nasty taste in some people’s mouths. What an awesome shooter!

    On this angle thu must have been a goaltend, looks like in a split second the ball was arching down to the rim.
    BUT calderon was like chasing his own shadow in a dark room.smh

    regardless of whether or not it was a goaltend, I think it was a smart play by O’Neal to keep possession on that block. A lot of guys would be tempted to block it into the stands.

    • retxedfred - Apr 2, 2014 at 2:47 PM

      The fact that O’Neil was able to grab the ball only reinforces a goaltend call. If the ball was still on the way up, it would just bounce off of his hand. The front camera angle proves it. His hand was just beside the rim. Unless the shot was way too strong, it would already definitely be on a downward flight.

    If the defender let him shoot this way – no surprise for me.
