Warriors’ Stephen Curry isn’t worried about mini-slump shooting the ball
In their 115-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shot just 30 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from 3-point distance. Though some are concerned about his bad shooting performance, Curry himself is not worried one bit.
In a post-game interview, the two-time MVP was asked about his shooting slump. Curry then shared that it’s the reality of the game and pointed out that he took shots that he thought he could make. Unfortunately, only a few of them dropped.
“Don’t overreact to that. Yeah, just one of those nights,” Curry said per Mark Medina of The Mercury News.

Despite his awful shooting performance, Stephen Curry finished with a near-triple-double of 18 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. For the season, he’s shooting 43.4 percent from 3-point country. But in the month of March, he’s just making 37.1 percent.
It’s uncharacteristic for Stephen Curry — tagged as the greatest shooter of all-time — to shoot below 40 percent. But in the past, we have seen Curry get out of the slump and put on a barrage of buckets. So perhaps, he’s right: fans don’t need to overreact.
In their upcoming four-game road trip starting with the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, we should expect an explosion from Curry.
