In the realm of basketball, Stephen Curry is often hailed as the epitome of shooting prowess, possibly even the greatest in the sport's history.

However, Sabrina Ionescu undoubtedly put Stephen Curry to the test on Saturday night during the NBA All-Star Weekend.

In a groundbreaking NBA vs. WNBA 3-point contest, the guard from the Golden State Warriors narrowly defeated the guard from the New York Liberty by a score of 29-26, marking the first event of its kind.

Ionescu began impressively, sinking seven consecutive shots before concluding with a total score of 26. This achievement happened to equal the highest score recorded by any NBA player in the earlier 3-point contest held that Saturday night, which was won by Damian Lillard of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Curry showcased flawless shooting from both the left and right wings, entering the final rack – his money-ball rack, where each successful shot was worth two points – with a total of 21 points.

After missing his initial shot, he proceeded to sink the final four, concluding with a total of 29 points and securing a thrilling victory.

Ernie Johnson of TNT set the stage for the showdown, dubbing it "Stephen vs. Sabrina," reminiscent of a high-profile boxing match. The occasion even featured the presentation of a heavyweight belt to the victorious competitor.

The event's concept brought to mind the iconic 1973 "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, where King emerged victorious after three sets.

However, unlike Riggs, who was notorious for undermining King's, as well as other women tennis players', skills, Curry displayed sportsmanship and grace throughout the competition.

"Earlier today, Sabrina and I discussed the incredible opportunity to pioneer something unprecedented in our sport," Curry remarked.
