For just the 2nd time this season, Stephen Curry failed to score in double figures.  Despite the Chef being cold enough to go 1 for 7 from downtown, the Pistons still felt the need to double team him to prevent him from heating up.  One of those double teams led to this pretty behind the back assist, one of his 11, to Barbosa late in the 3rd.

The Warriors still pulled off the win despite a non video game like game from Steph and a monster game from Detroit’s Andre Drummond who had 22 points and 27 rebounds.

“When he has a shooting night like this, you can tell the whole building is shocked when he misses a shot when he’s open,” Kerr said. “It just wasn’t his night.”
