Golden State Warriors Beat the Houston Rockets with Stephen Curry Hitting His First Buzzer-Beater

Steve Kerr had a definite plan in mind for the Golden State Warriors' last offensive possession when the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets were knotted with little over five seconds remaining on the clock Friday night.

Just as the final whistle sounded, Stephen Curry hit the game-winning jumper from 2 feet inside the 3-point line. It was Curry's first Buzzer-Beater in his professional basketball career.

"I know I got to shoot the ball better," Curry said. "I want to shoot it better, and I'm gonna shoot it better. ... I obsess over the shooting numbers because that's what I do and that's what I work on. When you don't reach those levels, it's frustrating."

Warriors guard Stephen Curry was scoreless for the first 11 minutes of the game before draining a 3-pointer with just under two minutes remaining in the first half. He ended with 22 points on 6-of-21 shooting, including 4-of-13 from 3-point range, to lead the team in scoring.

Curry said that he is concerned about the figures. He keeps track of his shooting patterns and can pinpoint precisely where his numbers are dwindling.

Curry said that he does not have a good understanding of why he is shooting so badly. The beginning of Curry's slump, according to some, goes back to early December, when he was attempting to break Ray Allen's all-time 3-point record.

Curry, on the other hand, believes that's not the end of the story. What it is, though, is much more difficult to pin down than anything else.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets 105 to 103.
