Collins gives Steph light shove at end of Dubs-Hawks first half

Collins and Curry

There was a strange moment at the end of a heated first half between the Warriors and Atlanta Hawks on Monday night at Chase Center.

After Hawks wing Bogdan Bogdanovic missed a half-court heave at the buzzer, Steph Curry caught the ball and when he turned towards the Warriors bench, he was met by Atlanta big man John Collins, who appeared to give Curry a bit of a shove.

While Collins had a smile on his face, Curry didn't seem amused by the contact.

Curry pushed Collins away and ran to the Warriors bench to head to the locker room.

After four straight subpar games, Curry went off for 24 points in the first half. He was locked in, focused on the mission of trying to beat the Hawks, and he didn't look like he was in the mood to mess around with Collins.
