Stephen Curry blames historically bad three-point performance on weather

Stephen Curry is used to making history, but usually it’s the good kind. On Monday night, the Golden State Warriors point guard made some of the bad kind by putting together the worst three-point shooting night in NBA history.

Curry went 0-11 from behind the arc, marking both his personal worst and an NBA worst stat line in this category.

After the game, Curry, whose team won handily against the Philadelphia 76ers, by the way, had an interesting theory about why he was so bad.

“The weatherman said it’s like a low pressure system that was coming in (and) I forgot to adjust to the thickness of the air,” he said, per CSN Bay Area.

That’s tremendous.

Curry still managed to score 19 points in the Warriors’ 11-point win over Philly. He’s made a living out of draining deep shots, so we’ll cut him some slack for his stinker, and applaud him for his quick wit and humor about it afterwards.
