Curry accepts shot challenge, donates $118,000 to help aid Hurricane Harvey victims

Stephen Curry has come forward with a six-figure donation to help relief efforts to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. 

In an Instagram video posted by Active Faith Sports, brand owner Lanny Smith enlisted the help of Curry to help raise funds for the cause. Smith, whose business is based out of Houston, said that for every shot (out of 25) that is made, he'd donate $1,000. He then stepped aside to reveal Curry as his designated shot maker. 

The Warriors point guard made 18 of 25 shots. He then announced he'd not only match the $18,000 but also contribute another $100,000 to the relief efforts. 

"Our prayers to the family. We've got your back!" Curry said after his final shot.

Kerr: Nick Young vs Pat McCaw 'hasn't crystalized at all for me'

Programming note: Warriors-Mavs coverage starts today at 4:30pm with Warriors Pregame Live on NBC Sports Bay Area.

In the Warriors' win over the Pelicans on Friday night, Pat McCaw did not get any playing time.

Nick Young was on the floor for 11 minutes.

"The way I look at Nick and Patrick -- I don't think either one has won the job, backup two," Kerr said after the game. "So I may play Pat tomorrow, I don't know. We'll figure it out.

"They're both gonna play, and there are gonna be nights where one of 'em may not get in."

On Saturday night against the Grizzlies, Young was -3 in five minutes and missed both of his 3-point attempts.

McCaw recorded two assists and a steal but he was -9 in 12 minutes.

Following shootaround on Monday in Dallas, Kerr said the following:

Sounds like this is going to be a point of discussion for the foreseeable future...

This is not the first time Curry has enjoyed a round of golf with Obama, as the two hit the links back in August 2015.

"My third time actually, so it's old news," Curry joked after shootaround on Monday. "We're always teammates. We're 2-1 now. Much better record than the Warriors."

What was Obama like?

"Same personality, same kind of charisma and vibe around him," Curry said. "Just maybe two or three less secret service members."

Curry and the Warriors face the Mavs on Monday night.

Seth Curry unfortunately will not suit up because of a left leg injury.
