Steph nailing transition triples in practice will hype you up

Warriors

Steph Curry transition 3-pointers have been rare over the last 18 months, as the two-time MVP has only played in five regular-season games since the Warriors lost to the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

In case you needed a reminder of what you, Golden State and basketball fans everywhere have been missing, footage from the Warriors' practice Tuesday will scratch that itch.

Curry didn't finish many Eric Paschall-led fastbreaks last season, considering what little time they spent together in the rotation. Paschall told reporters last week he wished he had relied on his playmaking skills sooner as a rookie last season, and now he'll have an outlet capable of shooting from just about anywhere whenever they share the floor.

Coach Steve Kerr said the Warriors are going to emphasize 3-point shooting to a greater degree this season, and Curry's return to the lineup should go a long way. Without Curry, Golden State was 29th in 3-point percentage (33.4 percent) and 25th in volume (31.3 attempts per game).

With him, the Warriors' offense -- in transition or otherwise -- will have a lot more life beyond the arc.
