Stephen Curry Scores Against L.A. Clippers in His New Under Armour Kicks

NBA baller Stephen Curry wasn’t having his best game last night against the L.A. Clippers, missing six of nine shots. But one of the shots he did make was a doozy.

The Golden State point guard, who was sporting the MI-30 colorway of his Under Armour Curry 1 sneaker, managed to dribble through four defenders to find a spot outside the three-point line. Then, after a quick spin, he launched the ball into the net with just nine seconds left on the shot clock.

The Golden State Warriors ended up defeating the Clippers 106-98, marking another big win for the team, which has been on a hot streak this season.

And Curry has had a stellar start of the year as well. The 26-year-old Ohio native recently signed with new sponsor Under Armour, which has made him the centerpiece of its basketball business. His signature Curry 1 shoe was unveiled last month during All Star weekend in New York, accompanied by a global ad campaign co-starring Curry and actor Jamie Foxx.

At the time of the shoe’s unveiling, Curry said, “This is surreal. I’ve worked hard since 7th grade, when I decided basketball was something I wanted to pursue. It was my calling in life and something that [could help me] inspire people around me and people I don’t even know. There have been a lot of hurdles, but to be here now and have a shoe symbolize that journey is precious.”

According to Glenn Lyon, chairman and CEO of Finish Line, the Curry 1 has been a hot seller in stores. “Under Armour’s entry into the basketball business and its ability to grow and become a factor in that category is something we are excited about,” he recently told FN.

The MI-30 colorway of the Curry 1 goes on sale April 18. Check out a video of the shoes in action last night:
