Steph got pep talk from Kerr during off night vs. Lakers

It was an off night for Steph Curry in Tuesday night's 121-114 season-opening win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center. 

An off-night that somehow still resulted in his eighth career triple-double. Go figure. 

During the game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr gave Curry a pep talk. 

"Hang in there," Kerr said to Curry. "I've seen you a million times have a night where it's not going your way. You know that all it takes is one. Keep fighting."

Curry led the team in scoring with 21 points but shot 5-of-21 from the field (23.8 percent). It was certainly an off-night for Curry, something he is all-too-familiar with at Staples Center. 

When asked why he struggles at the shared home of both the Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, Curry was open to advice. 

"No idea," Curry told reporters postgame. "If you have any ideas, please let me know because I still haven't figured it out. I like to learn those lessons in wins though if that helps"

Despite his struggles Tuesday night, Curry and the Warriors got the win against LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook and the Lakers. 

Reinforced by a deeper bench, Golden State is better equipped to handle the oh-so-rare off nights from their superstar.
