Déjà Vu: Steph Curry Misses A Wide-Open Dunk Vs The Lakers, Blames Thanksgiving Meal

Published on November 26th, 2016 by Astramskas, David | 1,944 views

After outscoring the short-handed Lakers 30-20 in the first quarter, the Warriors struggled in the 2nd and only managed to put up 23 points in the quarter. Steph Curry missed all three of his attempts in the 2nd, including a wide-open dunk – maybe he rushed it because he knew the shot-blocking beast that is Jose Calderon was behind him. Probably not, it’s just something about the Staple rims.

Back in 2014, at Staples, Curry also missed a wide-open 1-hand dunk attempt, but he turned that missed two into a made three.

Curry didn’t get a three on Friday’s missed dunk but did end up with 24 points (8-17 fg, 4-10 3pt), 5 boards, 5 assists and 3 steals in a 109-85 win. He also wants you to know the real reason he missed the dunk was because he had too much stuffing on Thanksgiving.


Curry would also like you to know that he was able to throw down his 1-hand try during the 2015/16 season.
