Warriors star Steph Curry has averaged more than 20 points in his last 10 seasons in the NBA. 

As the undeniably greatest shooter of all time, the threat Curry presents on offense is lethal. 

But for some reason, his shot on Christmas Day, especially from beyond the arc, is as cold as the North Pole.

Going into Saturday’s Christmas Day matchup against the Phoenix Suns at Footprint Center, Steph was averaging 13.1 points in eight Christmas games.

Curry bucked that trend, finishing with 33 points on 10-of-27 shooting from the field and 5-of-16 from the 3-point line in the Warriors' 116-107 win over the Suns.

In his 13-year career, Saturday was his first Christmas Day game where he had more than 20 points. 

Steph told reporters on Thursday that he doesn’t like playing on Christmas because of his underwhelming performance.

“I've struggled a lot on Christmas, for whatever reason, so I'm trying to rectify that on Saturday,” Curry said. 

And he did just that in the Warriors' statement win that gives them the best record in the NBA.

Steph has now scored at least 30 points in the last four games he has played in.

Steph found the Christmas spirit in his ninth game on the holiday, and got his shots to fa-la-la-la-fall.
