Video: Warriors’ Stephen Curry pulls off a reverse alley-oop slam at the All-Star Game
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry and the rest of Team Giannis lost to Team LeBron, 178-164, Sunday night at the All-Star Game. It was a perfect ending to an eventful three-day affair as the stars put on a show for everyone in Charlotte and the rest of the basketball world.
With seconds remaining and the game already out of hand, Curry decided to give fans a treat by pulling off a move that is rarely seen from the game’s greatest shooter ever. This time, Curry showed off his hops by way of a reverse alley-oop slam.
The Warriors superstar is coming off a close loss at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets’ Joe Harris in the 3-point shootout. For all we know, he could be gearing up for the dunk contest in Chicago next year.
Curry finished the game with 17 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists, going 6-of-23 from the field and hitting only four of his 17 long-distance attempts.
It’s been a fun-filled weekend for Curry and his entire family, going back home to Charlotte — the place where they spent a good part of their life while his father, Dell, was still playing for the Hornets.
The two-time Most Valuable Player will now head to a much-deserved break before returning to action on Thursday in a matchup with the Sacramento Kings.
