Stephen Curry's three-pointer from beyond 30 feet with 0.6 seconds left in overtime gave the visiting Golden State Warriors a 121-118 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

Curry finished with 46 points as his winning shot was his 12th three-pointer, tying the NBA single-game record. He also broke his own NBA record for threes in a season, leaving the new mark at 288.

With the win, Golden State became the first team this season to clinch a playoff berth.

Curry, the league's scoring leader and reigning most valuable player, missed about six minutes of the third quarter because of a left ankle injury. He drove to the basket and rolled the ankle before Thunder guard Russell Westbrook stepped on it.

Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 37 points, but he fouled out in the first minute of overtime.

The Warriors won the previous meeting with the Thunder, 116-108, at home on Feb. 6. The teams play again Thursday at Golden State.
