WATCH: Stephen Curry nails near-impossible basketball shot

The play had gone dead so it didn’t count for anything except kudos – but this off-the-ground shot is seriously impressive.

Golden State Warriors MVP Steph Curry, 28, widely regarded as the best shooter to ever play the game, showed exactly why that reputation is deserved against Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

Wow.

The audacious attempt came in the third-quarter of the game after he was sent tumbling to ground after a foul.

In a later play, he managed to ram home another dazzling effort, this time actually getting points on the board.

Unsurprisingly people were seriously impressed.
