Stephen Curry is magic, and especially so in the playoffs.

With the basket more than a half-court away, the Golden State star launched a missile from 62-feet down court as the third-quarter buzzer sounded on Friday night in Memphis.

It went in, dropping jaws and putting the Warriors on their way to the Western Conference finals after their Game 6 win over the Grizzlies.

Note, this the definition of "swish." The ball barely touches the net.

All NBA players were a combined 1 for 120 on 60+ foot shots this season, the league noted.

Naturally, the long bomb wasn't Curry's only wonder of the night. Earlier in the game, Curry stunned defenders with behind-the-back dribble that led into a vicious crossover, capped with a step-back three-pointer.

Curry's shot from beyond half-court would put the Warriors up 76-68 at the end of the third quarter in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinal game versus the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Warriors went on to win the game, 108-95, securing a trip to the Western Conference Finals for first time in 39 years. Curry made a playoff-career high of eight three-pointers, finishing with 32 points and 10 assists in Game 6.
