Stephen Curry's game-winning shot was blocked by a teenager

Published Add your comment

Stephen Curry's three-point shots are nearly impossible to live with. His defensive limitations may always be picked up on by the critics, but the Golden State Warriors man is pretty tricky to get a hold on offence.

However, a youngster from Taiwan did what 90 percent of guards in the NBA were unable to do last season; stop the two-time Most Valuable Player.

Curry is currently on a tour of Asia with Under Armour and, during an exhibition game, he was left a little red-faced as his attempted buzzer beater was swatted away.

Gian Mamuyac, an international player for the Philippines under-17s, went face-to-face with Steph as the clock wound down. The NBA superstar went behind the back to test the youngster's footwork, but when he attempted to unleash, the teen's outstretch arm diverted the ball away from the basket.

Of course, this was just an exhibition game and Curry wasn't even at 50 percent intensity, but the guard still asked for the final five seconds to be replayed. He certainly never made a mistake at the second attempt.

Mamuyac was named MVP of the game and it means the youngster, according to ABS-CBN's TJ Manotoc, has earnt a spot at Curry's basketball camp in the United States of America.
