Steph Curry was ice cold from the field in the first half against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night, but even the Warriors' star knows when certain shots are going in.
Curry started the game at Chase 0-of-9 from the field, including 0-of-4 from 3-pointer range. But he's never going to stop shooting. With under a minute remaining in the second quarter and the Warriors trailing by seven points, Curry got switched on to Thaddeus Young, put a couple moves on the big man to create space and took his 10th shot of the game.
While the ball was still in the air, Curry turned around and started running back on defense. He knew it was good when it left his hands.
And it was pure.
Curry finished the first half with 10 points on 1-of-11 shooting from the field and 7-of-7 from the free-throw line.
Curry sank a ridiculously hard tunnel shot before the game, but clearly that marksmanship didn't carry over in the first half of the game against the Spurs. Still, the greatest shooter in the history of the sport knows when a shot feels good when he releases it.
