Warriors guard Stephen Curry goes a minute shooting corner threes without a miss
Following a brief hiatus to end the 2017-18 NBA season, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry came back strong in their series versus the New Orleans Pelicans. As a result, the Warriors are on their way to their fourth consecutive Western Conference Finals.
There was some concern at the start of the postseason that Curry’s lingering injuries would hinder Golden State’s chances at a repeat. However, he looks to be in good form after going a minute straight without missing from deep, via SLAM Magazine:

Curry is pegged as the greatest shooter in NBA history. This video was just the latest example of why he is more than deserving of the designation.
Although he may not be shooting at an all-time mark like he has in years past, Curry is still every bit as lethal.
Fortunately, his return versus the Pelicans allowed him to find his touch after missing the last month of the regular season and the first round of playoffs. Curry registered 24.5 points, 3.5 assists, and 2.0 steals in four games versus New Orleans. He also shot 47.8 percent from the field and 44.1 percent from the three-point line. That said, it is safe to assume that he will be able to carry it over in the next round.
This is good news for the Warriors since they face perhaps their toughest challenge yet in the Houston Rockets. It goes without saying that these are two of the most high-powered teams in the league. The Warriors will need Curry to be on his A-game if they are to counter the star backcourt pairing of Chris Paul and James HArden.
