Stephen Curry's Game Winner Lifts Warriors Past Suns

Curry's Game Winner Came With 0.7 Seconds Left

Stephen Curry's game-winning 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left lifted the Warriors past the Phoenix Suns 113-112 at Chase Center on Saturday. Curry recovered an errant inbounds pass near halfcourt and launched a rainbow splash over the outstretched arms of a leaping Devin Booker. He did all of that in less than three seconds to give the Warriors their fourth straight win.

ALL-STARS SHINE BRIGHT
Two of the game's marquee superstars and former teammates — Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant battled it out in the Bay on Saturday. Both players had double-digit quarters, with Durant scoring 10 points in the second quarter and Curry had 12 points in the third. Curry capped his third-quarter flurry with a size-up step-back splash over Durant in isolation. 

Curry finished with a team-high 30 points, nine made 3-pointers, nine rebounds and six assists. Durant tallied 24 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and three blocks. Devin Booker also joined Curry and Durant with a double-digit quarter, scoring 12 of his game high 32 points in the final frame and trading clutch baskets with Curry down the stretch.

WELCOME BACK, GP2
After missing the last 16 games due to a left hamstring strain, Gary Payton II returned to action Saturday and his energy was infectious on both ends of the floor. Payton threw down several first-half dunks, slipping to the rim as a roll man and finishing over Jusuf Nurkic, athletically flushing it home on the break and converting an alley-oop from Brandin Podziemski. Defensively, he took turns on multiple of the Suns' top offensive weapons, including Kevin Durant, who is about 10 inches taller.

30 STRAIGHT GAMES IN DOUBLE FIGURES
Jonathan Kuminga scored a team-high 13 points in the first half, clinching his 30th consecutive game with double-digit points. Kuminga finished with 21 points — his 12th time during the stretch scoring at least 20 points. During this stretch, he is averaging 18.5 points on 57.4 percent shooting.
