During Sunday’s Game 4, Curry was getting open looks but they weren’t falling. He shot just 3-14, and finished with only 12 points. In Wednesday’s Game 5, Curry’s shooting stats looked a lot better. He went 7-15 for 24 points, but he had some untimely and curious turnovers, and some lackluster play when the team needed him most.
Don’t expect that to continue during Game 6. At least that’s what coach Steve Kerr believes.
At Friday’s shootaround, Kerr said that he anticipates a big game from his two-time MVP.

“I think Steph, he’s been doing this for a long time, obviously,” Kerr said, when asked about the six-time All-Star. “He’s been through it. He maybe hasn’t had his best couple of games, so you guys know Steph. He’s a competitor. He’s awfully resilient. I bet you he has a good game tonight.”
Kerr also touched on the Warriors position going into Game 6. While it’s been considered a disappointing series for Golden State, Kerr reminded reporters that “We’re actually in pretty good shape this series. We’re up 3-2.”
Game 6 tips off at 7:00 p.m. PT on ESPN from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
