As Steph Curry went up against former teammate Kevin Durant Saturday night, the Golden State Warriors star made sure he won this battle.
Curry led the Warriors to a 113-112 win over the Phoenix Suns behind his 30 points, nine rebounds and six assists along with a huge shot to give Golden State the lead with .7 seconds left.
The Suns got one last chance to win it, but Durant’s game-winning attempt came up short.

The game marked a second-straight 30+ point game for Curry. He had 42 points on Thursday in a win against the Indiana Pacers, and he’s shot 20-of-32 from deep over his last two games.
Steph sizes the defender up and drains the look-away 3-pointer!
