Want to know how important a good start is? Just ask Stephen Curry.
After a slow start, Curry hit nine of his last 10 shots in the first round of Saturday night’s Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, but his total of 17 was not enough to advance. Kyrie Irving got blistering hot in the championship round, scoring 23 treys to eclipse Matt Bonner’s 20 to take home the title.
As Warriors fans well know, once Curry gets rolling, he doesn’t seem to miss. That was the case Saturday night, but unfortunately it took a little while for him to find his comfort zone. Check out the chart and photo gallery below for a full breakdown of Curry’s round:
