Stephen A.: It’s ‘idiotic’ to think Celtics figured Steph out

BY: TRISTI RODRIGUEZ

Steph Curry had an off shooting night in the Warriors’ Game 5 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday, and the world is doing what it usually does after a bad night from the superstar — talking. S

As usual, Stephen A. Smith chimed in on the conversation and came to Curry’s defense on ESPN’s First Take on Tuesday morning. 

While the Splash Bro finished with just 16 points on 7-of-22 shooting and didn’t make a three for the first time in his playoff career, Smith isn’t giving credit to Boston’s defense. 

“Steph Curry was 0-of-9 last night from 3-point range, I counted at least four 3-point shots where he was wide open. He just missed, it happens,” Smith said. “He’s the greatest shooter God has ever created. I’ve never seen anybody shoot the basketball like him. He’s entitled. It happens, OK? I’m not worried about that at all.

“We came into last night’s game fresh off a 43-point performance by Steph Curry in Game 4 on 14-of-26 shooting. What the hell do you mean figured him out? One game, because he missed? All of a sudden they figured him out? That is just idiotic. For anybody who would think that, it’s idiotic.” 

Prior to Game 5, Curry was averaging 34 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and 49 percent shooting from behind the arc.
