WATCH: Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors Throws Insane Pass Against the Los Angeles Clippers
Last week, Golden State Warriors legend Stephen Curry became the NBA’s all-time leading three-point shooter.
He’s also a pretty good passer, as it turns out.
While John Stockton’s NBA career assist record is unlikely to be broken anytime soon – at least not by Curry – No.
When the situation calls for it, 30 showed he can dish it out with the best of them during the team’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.
On Sunday, Curry had 10 assists for the fourth time this season while only committing three turnovers.
Although the 2021-2022 season is still in its early stages, Steph’s 6.7 assists per game this season are the most he’s had in six years.
On Sunday, one dime in particular stunned me.

First and foremost, the highlight dish would not have occurred if rookie Jonathan Kuminga’s brilliant defense on Hornets stud LaMelo Ball had not occurred.
Given the positioning of Charlotte forward Cody Martin on Curry and the streaking Jordan Poole the other way when Steph picked up the loose ball, the Warriors’ pass wasn’t just a fancy play, but also a heads up play.
During the game, Steph also made an epic buzzer-beater.
It should come as no surprise that Steph Curry’s Curry-to-Poole assist wasn’t the game’s only highlight.
With 4.9 seconds remaining in the third quarter, Hornets southpaw – and former Warriors forward Kelly Oubre Jr.
– took a pass from Ball and sank a deep three-pointer to give Charlotte a 87-85 lead.
Unfortunately for the Hornets play-by-play announcer and the rest of the home crowd, the Dubs kept their heads up, and more magic happened after an inbound to Curry.
On the third-quarter buzzer-beater, we can probably assume that the greatest shooter of all-time said “bank.”
Despite their losses, the Dubs remain at the top of the NBA standings and power rankings.
Despite the fact that both of Curry’s highlights could easily end up on end-of-season highlight reels, the Warriors were defeated for the first time in 17 days.
Despite the loss, Golden State still has the best record in the NBA (11-2).
They’re in front of all 30 teams in the tournament…
