He’s so good from long distance it’s taken for granted, but Steph Curry produced one of the moments of a spectacular All-Star Game on Sunday night without even attempting a shot.
The game was an all-out scoring fest, finishing 178-164 to LeBron James’ selection of stars, and that’s no surprise when you see how scoring has rocketed in the league this year.
James Harden scores 40 points like it’s boxes of cheap booze in Lidl.
But the Golden State Warriors’ main man, who looks like he’s strolling to another NBA title this season, provided the moment of the night with an outrageous set-up for Giannis Antetokounmpo slam.

With thanks to the NBA twitter team for sharing.
Curry blasts the ball off the court and over his fellow Warrior Kevin Durant – things could be interesting at their next training session – for his All-Star captain to complete what we’re reliably informed is technically an “alley-oop”.
There’s nothing oops about it to our eyes, he definitely meant it!
You can see it here ins slow-motion if you don’t believe us.
Steph's bounce-pass lob to Giannis: even better in slo-mo 😮
