Game winning shot from Curry upsets Mavericks, 125-122

IN HIS second game back from an injury, Stephen Curry silenced the Dallas Arena as he drained the game winning three-point shot to hand over Maverick's 26th loss of the NBA season.

It was a close game all throughout the four quarters as both teams were draining their shots. Dallas was shooting 48 percent from the field while Golden State was shooting 53 percent.

It was in the closing minutes of the 4th quarter were things started to heat up. Golden State had already controlled the game and was looking to pull away to get the easy win. However, the Dallas Mavericks had beautiful plays to make a 10-0 run to tie the game all at 120-120 courtesy of Wesley Matthews' two crucial 3-pointers and clutch plays made by former Warrior, Harrison Barnes.

Klay Thompson was able to make a quick shot out of the timeout to bring back the lead into just 2 points. The play forced the Dallas Mavericks to use their final timeout.

Harrison Barnes was able to make a spin move lay-up against Patrick Mccaw to tie the game at 122.

Warriors had one time out left with 12 seconds to play but head coach Stever Kerr instructed them to continue the play.

The ball was in the hands of Curry, one of the best shooters in the NBA.

With a screen set by Dreymond Green, Curry had plenty of room to knock down the dagger shot.

Curry scored 32 points, making six three-pointers and eight assists. He was helped in the scoring division with Kevin Durant and Thompson makin 25 points each.

For Dallas, Matthews led his team with 22 points, making seven out of 10 three-point shots, and Barnes with 18. (Frankl Glarino, USC AB Communications Intern/SunStar Philippines)
