Whether you're a Heat fan (as I am) or not, you gotta admit game 6 and 7 are as good as basketball gets.

Half-court shots to win a prize aren't all that rare, but the way this one went in is impressive, as is the reason she got the chance to try.

Steph Curry Broke Another (20-Year-Old) Record Last Night



... He has become so formidable from deep – he's shooting 38.4 percent from 39 feet or more this season, better than the league average from the three point line (22 feet) -that Utah's Trey Burke knew he had to get out and stop the deep heave. Curry crossed him up mercilessly, however, then pulled up for a 55-footer on the run. The bank was open for business, and he had his third half-court make of the year. According to ESPN, he's the first to pull that off in 20 years.
Wow.

History could be made Wednesday night, the last game of the season.

Golden State Warriors tie the NBA record for wins in a season

Also, Stephen Curry has 388 3-point baskets this season, topping his previous records of 286 and 272. Records in any sport are almost never broken by 36%.

He's also got:
Most seasons leading league, 3-pt field goals - 3 (tie)
Most consecutive seasons leading league, 3-pt field goals - 3
2nd most 3-pt field goals, rookie, season - 166
Most 3-pt field goals, game - 12 (tie)
Most consecutive games, 3-point field goal made - 148

An MJ for our times.

Probably have to consider the Bulls better, but if the Warriors dominate for a few more years? Folks will be compared to MJ, like Kobe Bryant has been, but there may never be another Dennis Rodman. :D

History or not tonight.

Done, 125-104 for 73.

Curry: 10th 20-point quarter of the season (rest of the league accounted for 25), 46 points, league-high scoring average of 30.1, 402 3-pointers for the season!

Also, Kobe retired with 60-points in a winning game!

(Injured for 3 weeks) Stephen Curry just played the best overtime in NBA history (regular season or postseason, 17 points)

Wow.

Then, there's LeBron and the Cavs sweeping 2 series. Repeat of last year's finals?

Too bad about Toronto.

Klay and Steph save Warriors season, stun Thunder to force Game 7

Gonna be wild in Oakland Monday night, absolutely nuts if the Warriors win after being down 3-1.

"The Warriors are now the first team to go down 3-1 in the conference finals and come back to make the NBA Finals since the Boston Celtics in 1981."

Bernie Sanders, Danny Glover Attend Game 7 of the NBA Playoffs

... Earlier in the evening, Sanders appeared at a rally wearing a Warriors hat ...

GSW (ironic acronym for Oakland, 'gunshot wound') up 2-0 :clap: , biggest 2 game point differential in finals history, 110-77 is crazy. I think I read that only 3 teams have ever come back from being down 2-0.

Curry 38, 7-13 on 3 pt. FGs, GSW new Finals record with 17 3 pt. FGs in a game, up 3-1, very, very unlikely for the Cavs to come back like GSW did in the Western Conf. finals. GSW has 2 of the remaining 3 at home and no team has ever done it in the Finals, they're 0-32 in the series.

Oh well.

Just 17-13 in the 4th, kind of a limping end.
