If Stephen Curry was due to cool off for a game, this was the one.
Game 2 of the NBA Finals featured a Curry we're not accustomed to seeing — one that couldn't shoot the ball in the ocean. Credit to Matthew Dellavedova for the scrappy defense, but Curry was also just off. Shots rimmed out and his decision making was out of character. He finished with 19 points on 5-for-23 shooting, including 2-for-15 from 3-point range. The Warriors fell 95-93 in overtime.
On the bright side, Curry laced up an awesome Under Armour Curry One PE that a lot of fans are hoping is planned for a release. Somewhat of a "Reverse MVP" version, the shoe sports a similar gradient white, black and gold setup, but with a gold counter and midsole. The most intriguing element of the design is the repeated words and symbols throughout the upper. Could this be a special Finals/Championship make-up that will drop if the Warriors win?
It is worth noting that Curry changed back into his yellow-based colorway at the half. Perhaps he's as superstitious as his opponent.
