Against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry casually shook off his defender en route to a pull-up three-pointer that swished the net.
Curry started cooking late in the third quarter after a relatively cold start, victimizing Justin Holiday who tried to cover the sweet-shooting guard.

Curry is coming off a mediocre 11-point performance in a 106-105 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. It was the worst shooting game of his entire career as he finished 2-of-16 from the field, including a terrible 1-of-10 from downtown.
After his poor output, Curry remained confident, telling Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle that his shooting stroke will always be there.
“I expect my offense to be there every single night. In terms of us just having confidence across the board, no matter who’s out on the floor, I like where we’re at right now.”
The Warriors, however, couldn’t pull off a second straight win, bowing to the Pacers, 104-95 to fall to 6-4. Curry tallied 20 points, four rebounds, and three assists, but he didn’t shoot particularly well again, missing 10 of his 17 attempts.
But as he’s proven in the past, a bad night or two isn’t going to faze Stephen Curry. As long as he’s open or he’s feeling it, he will let it fly.
