Steve Kerr Reveals Reason For Steph Curry's Game 5 Struggles

Steph's shot was off in Game 5 vs. the Boston Celtics

Steph Curry finished a playoff game without making a three.

The game's greatest shooter was coming off of a legendary performance in Game 4

pouring in 43 points on 7/14 from deep, but he was unable to find that groove again in Game 5.

Finishing with just 16 points on 0/9 from deep, Steph was unable to find his offensive rhythm

however, he will gladly trade his individual numbers for another win.

"It was both," Steve Kerr said when asked whether it was Boston's defense

or just shooting variance that caused Steph's struggles.

"I think Boston did a really good job defensively, as we would expect, they're a great defensive team.

I thought they put more pressure on him early, and then Steph missed some open ones too

so it's always a combination.

While Steph struggled offensively in this game

Steve Kerr anticipates a bounce-back performance in Game 6.

"Even for the best shooter in the world, games like this happen," Kerr said.
