Steph Curry leads Warriors to thrilling OT victory against Celtics in NBA showdown
Stephen Curry made a 3-point shot with 12 seconds left in overtime, scoring 33, to help the Golden State Warriors defeat the Celtics 132-126 and end Boston’s winning streak. Curry’s play led the Warriors to a decisive win in a game where they rallied to secure victory despite Boston’s lead. Jonathan Kuminga and Klay Thompson contributed to the team win, with Kuminga making a critical steal and Thompson hitting a tying 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. Jaylen Brown and Derrick White led the Celtics on the scoreboard, but they failed to capitalize on several opportunities to secure a win in overtime.
Key opportunities were missed in the final minute of OT. Jayson Tatum, who returned from an injury during the game, added 15 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists. On the Warriors side, Thompson emerged as a solid contributor with 24 points, and Andrew Wiggins was able to return after being ill. The game was filled with drama, as Curry got five fouls and the Warriors also lost rookie guard Brandin Podziemski to an injury. Despite these setbacks, Curry’s leadership on the court proved essential for the team’s victory.
The Warriors are set to host Washington, while the Celtics will play Sacramento to complete the back-to-back games.
