Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was thrown off his game big time Saturday evening. The two-time NBA MVP shot just 7-of-23 from the field in an overtime loss to the Houston Rockets.

Curry’s performance coincided with Houston nabbing its first win of the conference semifinals series to pull to within 2-1.

Ahead of Game 4 on Monday night, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr addressed Curry’s struggles. He did so in the most Steve Kerr way possible.

Kerry is almost literally plucked from the same tree as his former coach, Gregg Popovich.

As it relates to Curry, it’s rather obvious that both his ankle and finger injuries are bothering the three-time champ. Whether that changes in Game 4 remains to be seen.
