Tell me if you have heard any of these headlines before?
“STEPH CURRY CATCHES FIRE IN THE 4TH”
“STEPH CURRY HITS A 3 AND TURNS AROUND BEFORE IT GOES IN”
Combine those 2 familiar headlines and you have what Steph did last night against the Bucks.
The Chef missed 8 of his first 10 shots, a free throw which snapped his streak of 33 and was having what Steve Kerr said was “arguably one of his worst games of the year going” but then came the 4th quarter where he hit 3 consecutive 3 pointers.
“That’s why he’s Stephen Curry,” said Coach Kerr. “I used to watch it with Michael Jordan. On nights where he missed 10 shots in a row, when everyone else would just clam up, he just all of a sudden would find that incredible confidence. It’s unbreakable. Steph has that.
“That’s what makes him special.”
Special indeed. Special enough to be in that elite company who can take a 3 and turn around before it goes in because he knows it’s going in.
Curry finished with 19 points, 11 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks and 6 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
