Stephen Curry, of the Golden State Warriors, blamed the weather and the thickness of the air for his poor shooting, as he shot two air balls during the first quarter of Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
“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,” Curry joked to reporters, according to Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area.
According to ClutchPoints, the back-to-back MVP insisted he tried to stay aggressive and not lose confidence, while trying to impact the game in other ways.
“It happens but you have to try and find other ways to impact the game. I was trying to get to the paint a little bit more and just try to make plays. One thing is I don’t get down on myself. Obviously, that’s why I got 11 of them up. I still have confidence the next one is going in and that will stay the same tomorrow,” Curry said.
