Steph Curry nailed a shot from well beyond midcourt in the first quarter of Golden State's 122-110 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. 

Unfortunately for Curry, and the crowd at the Oracle Arena, it didn't beat the buzzer. Never mind. He did it again in the second quarter and on that occasion got his timing just right.

The Warriors remain on course for a historic season after making it three wins on the bounce against the Pacers, but the story of the game was Curry's insane shooting.

The 27-year-old finished with 39 points and a triple double and was evidently feeling in a confident move from the very start. With the score at 18-32 at the end of the first quarter, the point guard took on a shot from well beyond the half-way line and nailed it.

However the buzzer went well before the ball left his hand and the long-range three pointer was chalked off. 

Not to be deterred, he launched another shot at the end of the second quarter with just enough time to spare, and this one did count. The crowd's reaction is insane.

You can check out the official footage below, as well as a cool angle of the second quarter shot posted by ESPYS last night, below.

The icing on the cake for Curry? He also became the first player in NBA history to make 200 three-pointers in four straight seasons. Ray Allen is the only player with more than 200 three-point seasons with five, although they weren't consecutive.

The win against the Pacers moves Golden State's record on to 40-4, keeping them on track to better the 95/96 Chicago Bulls record of 72 wins in a season.

Is Curry the best long-range shooter in the history of the game already?
