NBA/WBNA: Steph Curry defeats Sabrina Ionescu in an unforgettable upset

Stephen Curry defeated Sabrina Ionescu in an unusual three-point duel Saturday night at the NBA Skills Competition in Indianapolis.

The WNBA New York Liberty player started her first game in the tournament's history with a score of 26, hitting 9 of her first 10 shots to set the bar high.

Curry, the star of the Golden State Warriors, followed up with a 29-basket performance to seal the victory in the event that is the trademark of both athletes.

“It couldn't have gone better, we took a chance and built on the enthusiasm by delivering the goods. It set the tone. I don't know if anyone will be able to get close to his level, but it's definitely something we can do a lot of in the future.” .

The significance of this trauma is immeasurable for the 26-year-old, who, when playing in high school, recommended playing with dolls instead of basketball. She followed her passion despite the obstacles and proved herself as one of the best players in the world.

“It was incredible to be part of this unique event, to perform while realizing the magnitude of the moment. I am thrilled to be part of these winds of change alongside the greats,” she said.

“I just want to continue to enjoy my platform. An evening like this can show young girls and boys that if you can shoot, you can shoot, and that's it. It doesn't matter whether you're a boy or a girl, what matters is your passion and determination to become the best you can be.” To be him.”
