“I do not pay attention to that kind of statistics, I admit that I failed when I had the responsibility to make the decisive shot, but that’s what happens in this sport, sometimes the ball comes in and sometimes not,” Curry said. “Now we must turn the page and especially think about the full recovery of our injured colleagues.”
Curry showed that he fit the loss well by communicating fun with rapper Drake, the Raptors’ number one fan, who called him on the phone as he left the legendary Oracle Arena field for the last time.
