Stephen Curry is one of the most consistent pure shooters in the history of the NBA, but even he has an off night now and again. In a losing effort Friday night, the NBA’s three-point king failed to make one single splash from behind the arc, ending a 157-game streak.
After the game, he was asked about what it feels like knowing the streak is over. Here’s what he had to say:

Curry went 0-for-10 Friday night from behind the three-point line as the Warriors were pummeled by the surprisingly competitive Los Angeles Lakers, 117-97.
He wasn’t the only Warriors shooter to go cold at Staples Center. Klay Thompson went 2-for-10, and the Warriors as a whole went 5-for-32 on the night. A team that lives and dies by the three, it’s no wonder Golden State failed miserably to beat the Lakers on this night.
Now at 4-2 on the season, the Warriors clearly still have some work to do integrating Kevin Durant into the lineup so that the entire offense is a well-oiled machine. With plenty of time left to iron out the kinks, we’re betting this team will be a big factor once the playoffs roll around.
