Steph Curry was the subject of Twitter memes and ridicule on Saturday as his Golden State Warriors fell to the Houston Rockets 126-121 in Game 3. Despite the loss, the Warriors still have a 2-1 lead in the series, although if one thing is for sure, they’re going to need a much better outing from Curry in Game 4. Curry only managed in 17 points in 44 minutes on Saturday, including a 7-23 shooting performance that was topped off by a wide-open missed dunk.
Heading into Game 4 tonight, Curry’s teammates, including his coach, are confident he’ll be able to get it together and play like the MVP he’s proven himself to be.
“He’s just really, really competitive and he gets locked in, and he gets a little bit angry,” head coach Steve Kerr said according to ESPN. “And he comes out with a lot of focus and a lot of fight, so that’s what we’re expecting [Monday].”
Draymond Green explained that Curry is aware when he plays a bad game and that despite the weak performance, he continues to be confident. He’s positive Curry will be stellar in Game 4.
“I think Steph has a good balance of beating himself up and just moving on with life,” Green said. “And I think that’s important. It’s part of the reason he’s the shooter that he is. I think if you talk to anyone who plays basketball, the toughest thing is to miss shots and keep shooting.”
Game 4 goes down tonight in Houston at 9:30 P.M. EST.
