Stephen Curry made one of his patented half-court three-point jumpers against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, giving an opponent a first-hand look at the remarkable shot.
Rookie guard Malcolm Brogdon was the Bucks player tasked with guarding Curry as he rose up and hit from the front of the mid-court logo from about 33 feet. Brogdon admitted that, familiar as he was with Curry’s shooting skills, seeing a shot like that go in in person was entirely different.

This is what the guy does. It’s easy to watch and be awed, but it’s kind of interesting to hear the perspective of someone being victimized up close and personal by one of those shots.
