Stephen Curry reacts to his botched dunk attempt for Warriors in OT of Game 3
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry had an epic blunder at the end of their 126-121 Game 3 loss against the Houston Rockets. Curry botched a wide-open dunk attempt late in their overtime defeat to punctuate arguably the worst game of his career.
After the game, Curry didn’t need to speak out on his embarrassing miss, saying it was “pretty self-explanatory.” Steph then went to explain why he opted to go for the dunk instead of the easy lay-up with the Warriors needing a crucial basket at that point.
“I was feeling pretty good, had a nice head of steam. Probably a little bit of frustration, too, with how the rest of the night went. But, not my finest moment,” Curry said in his postgame presser.

It’s worth noting though that Curry seemed to be in good spirits after his all-time horrendous performance in Game 3.
Curry struggled on both ends of the floor in Game 3. He scored 17 points but shot just 7-of-23 from the field, including 2-of-9 from distance and an out-of-character 1-of-3 from the charity stripe.
It just wasn’t Curry’s night as he bricked a lot of open looks from long-distance. He even missed a crucial wide-open layup with 1:49 remaining in overtime that could have trimmed Houston’s lead to one.
Likewise, the sharpshooter also struggled defensively, as Houston took advantage of his deficiencies on that end of the ball. Curry had a couple of miscues on defense late in the game and committed a couple of silly fouls in the fourth quarter and in overtime.
Chalk this up to another bad night for the two-time MVP — the worst one, that is. Nevertheless, the Warriors are still up in this series, 2-1, and still have a chance to close out things in Golden State if they win in Game 4.
