Steph tied Kyle Korver’s record of a 127 consecutive games with a three-pointer made.
Per the AP:
Curry connected on the go-ahead 3-pointer over the outstretched arm of Miami center Hassan Whiteside with 38 seconds left, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Miami Heat 118-112 on Wednesday night in a game that featured 13 lead changes in the fourth quarter alone. […] “It was a huge test,” Curry said. “On the road, any time you play against a playoff basketball team, it’s going to be a tough task.”
Curry finished with 42 points, and Klay Thompson scored 15 consecutive points for Golden State in the fourth on his way to a 33-point night. […] Curry made a pair of free throws with 18.5 seconds left to get to the 40-point mark for the ninth time this season, and soon the Warriors walked off a winner for the 51st time in 56 games this season.
“We had our opportunities,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “Our guys played their butts off. … This is for competitors only. This is competition at its finest.” […] Dwyane Wade had a season-high 32 points and seven assists for the Heat, who led by 12 early and went up 108-107 when Wade made a pair of free throws with 56.5 seconds left.
