Stephen Curry has no comment on Rajon Rondo putting foot under him
For superstar point guard Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, it’s no secret that Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the New Orleans Pelicans got out of hand and resulted in a lopsided 119-100 loss.
However, early in the game, a certain play with Curry and Pelicans veteran point guard Rajon Rondo drew ire from many people when it appears Rondo stuck his foot out under Curry while he was shooting the ball.
Here is the play in question that occurred during the first quarter, which was captured on replay and kindly uploaded to Twitter by Antonis Passias.

When Curry was asked about what his thoughts were about the play with Rondo and whether he should be punished, he didn’t say too much.
“I got no comment,” Curry said after team practice on Saturday, according to Warriors beat reporter Chris Haynes of ESPN. “If the league wants to look into it, that’s on them. We’re trying to win Game 4.”
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, on the other hand, did not seem too happy about Rondo’s dangerous play, whether it was intentional or not.
“You can’t do that,” coach Kerr said. “I’m all for getting underneath guys’ skin. But you can’t try to step on a guy’s foot or try to swipe a guy underneath his feet when he’s shooting. Those are dangerous plays.”
Curry and the Dubs will look to bounce back from their underwhelming performance today in Game 4 and potentially take a 3-1 series lead back home to the Bay Area.
