Warriors star Steph Curry does the Michael Jordan shrug after long 3-pointer

Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry decided to embrace his inner Michael Jordan during Wednesday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Warriors were able to hold on for 147-140 victory over the Pelicans, and once again, it was Curry that led the way with 41 points.

However, as he usually does, the Warriors guard decided to showcase his incredible long-range shooting ability by knocking down several shots from way beyond the arc.

But on this one shot in particular, he chose to bring out the Jordan shrug to show just how much he was feeling it:

Of course, Jordan did the same move against the Portland Trail Blazers during the NBA playoffs many years ago, and Curry could probably do that on a regular basis given how frequently he makes these types of shots.

Curry also managed to set an NBA record by hitting at least eight 3-pointers in three straight games, as he finished with nine made shots from long range against New Orleans.

The Warriors are clearly playing some of their best basketball of the season right now, and after the convincing win over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, they had no trouble responding with another emphatic win.

Next up is a matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night, where DeMarcus Cousins will make his Warriors debut.
