Game 1 of the NBA Finals was arguably Steph Curry's worst performance of the playoffs.
The unanimous MVP registered 11 points (4-for-15 FG), five rebounds, six assists and five turnovers.
On Friday afternoon, he had the following exchange with ESPN's Mark Schwarz:
Schwarz: Watching your ritual last night before the game, and ending with the tunnel shot...
Curry: Did you ask me about that the other day?
Schwarz: Yeah, yeah.
Curry: I said it didn't have an effect on my shooting. I might have been wrong (laughing).
Schwarz: 0-for-5 last night. I noticed that...
Schwarz: Steve (Kerr) talked about the little kid in you ... what is it about that tunnel shot that brings out the little kid in you? And from the other crazy difficult shots you take in a game, where does that rank in terms of degree of difficulty?
Curry: Honestly, it's a tough angle but it's not that difficult a shot. Ever since college, I always try crazy trick shots in practice and in games just having fun. When you're in the gym all the time, you gotta find little things that keep it fun.
It's kind of been a part of my personality and things like that, and it's kind of morphed into a really strict routine for home games.
Schwarz: If you had to guess, what would be your guess on what percentage of those shots you have made in your life, from the tunnel?
Curry: Probably like 15 percent (laughing). It's not good at all. It's a fun moment when it does go in. I'll get a hot streak going every once in a while, but then there will be nights like last night where you go 0-for-5 and don't need to waste any more time out there shooting.
