Warriors' Steph Curry Remembers 3-pointer in Playoff Rally Vs. Pelicans

Editor's note: Stephen Curry's unprecedented NBA career has entered its 10th season, so we visited with the Warriors star to detail his Top 10 moments, and he obliged.

It's one of the biggest shots in recent Warriors playoff history.

Before Golden State became an NBA champion, it had to get past the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Warriors had won the first two games of their NBA playoff first-round series against the Pelicans in 2015. But in Game 3, they trailed by as many as 20 points in the second half.

In the final seconds of regulation, with the Warriors trailing by three, Marreese Speights collected a loose ball in a mad scramble before finding Curry in the corner.

With several Pelicans, including Anthony Davis, lunging at him in desperation, Curry deposited a 3-pointer into the bottom of the net, sending the game into overtime.

The Warriors ultimately prevailed 123-119 in overtime, and went on to sweep the Pelicans in four games. Golden State then advanced to the second round before eliminating the Grizzlies, Rockets and Cavaliers on their way to their first NBA championship in 40 years.

Watch the video above to hear Curry explain why he picked it as one of the top 10 moments of his 10-year NBA career.
