Stephen Curry Hits New Career First Weeks After Making NBA History

The Golden State Warriors star broke the league's all-time 3-point record in December.

Stephen Curry has reached a new career first just weeks after making NBA history.

The Golden State Warriors star made the winning shot as the final buzzer went off during a game against the Houston Rockets in San Francisco on Friday night. It was Curry’s first buzzer-beater, and secured his team’s win against the Rockets, 105-103.

Curry celebrated the milestone in an on-court interview after the game, saying ”’Bout time I made one.”

“That’s the first one,” he said, before screaming with excitement.

Curry has been celebrating a number of career highlights recently.

The Warriors guard made NBA history last month when he broke the league’s all-time 3-point record during a game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Curry hit his 2,974th 3-pointer during that game, passing Hall of Famer Ray Allen, who previously held the record with 2,973 3-pointers in his career.

Chicago Sky star Candace Parker tweeted at that time that Curry has “changed the way we even view basketball.”
