VIDEO: Stephen Curry is pissed after lights went off while shooting 3-pointer
In fitting fashion, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry literally shot the lights out versus the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday. After attempting a three-pointer, the lights at the Smoothie King Arena suddenly shut off, probably because that’s the only way to stop Curry from scoring.
Jokes aside, the shot didn’t count so the Baby Assassin wasn’t exactly pleased (via Bleacher Report).

In Curry’s defense, that’s would’ve been a waste if his shot indeed went in. The match went down to the wire so who knows if that three-point shot would’ve made the difference. Unfortunately for the Warriors, they lost to the Pelicans by five points. Curry finished the game with 37 points in 37 minutes.
The Warriors are vying to make it to at least the play-in tournament. They’re in a position to do just that as they’re tied with the Memphis Grizzlies for the eighth seed in the competitive Western Conference.
As for Curry, the two-time MVP is having one of the best seasons of his career. He’s clearly shown that he’s a top-five player in the NBA. Dubbed as the best shooter to ever play the game, Curry has notched multiple records this season, including passing Wilt Chamberlain as the number one scorer in Warriors history.
The up-and-down Warriors need to win their next couple of games to at least have a comfortable spot for the play-in tournament. Luckily for Stephen Curry and company, they’ll be going up against the Oklahoma City Thunder twice in the next coming days.
