OKLAHOMA CITY – Stephen Curry's three-pointer from beyond 30 feet with 0.6 seconds left in OT gave the Golden State Warriors a 121-118 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday.
"That's what [Curry] do," said Kevin Durant, who led the Thunder with 37 points but fouled out in the first minute of overtime.
Curry finished with 46 points, and his winning shot was his 12th three-pointer, tying the NBA single-game record. He also broke his own NBA record for threes in a season, leaving the new mark at 288.
"I didn't know that," Curry said when asked if he knew he'd set the single-season mark. "Thankfully that last one went in."
With the win, Golden State became the first team to clinch a playoff berth.
Curry, the NBA's scoring leader and reigning MVP, missed about six minutes of the third quarter with a left ankle injury. He drove to the basket and rolled the ankle before the Thunder's Russell Westbrook stepped on it.
"He made some tough shots," Westbrook said of Curry.
Oklahoma City led by 12 in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors rallied. Klay Thompson made a three from the left corner to cut Oklahoma City's lead to 100-99.
Durant responded with a three-pointer with 14.5 seconds left to put the Thunder up 103-99.
Thompson quickly scored a layup, then the Thunder turned the ball over, and Andre Iguodala was fouled with 0.7 seconds left. Iguodala made both free throws to tie the score at 103 and force the extra period.
