Steph Curry, by his own standards, had a bad outing in the Golden State Warriors’ Thursday night loss to the Chicago Bulls, going for 23 points on 10-of-27 shooting, including a 2-of-11 clip from downtown. He is now 4-of-31 from deep over the last three games, through which the Warriors are 1-2.
If you think he’s somehow going to adjust his approach based off this recent slump, you’ve got another thing coming, per the Bay Area News Group’s Anthony Slater:
Curry on 4-of-31 slump: "Reason I take them is I believe I can make them. Been that way my whole career. Won't change based on three games."

In sum: Curry isn’t panicking or overreacting, because he has no reason to. Nor do the rest of us. Shooters go through ruts. Even the best one in NBA history. He’ll regain his shot eventually and we’ll laugh at the notion that he ever needed to do anything different, to tweak anything about his often circus-like approach shooting.
It’s worth noting that, through these three games, Curry is shooting 4-of-29 on open and wide-open threes, according to NBA.com. His uncontested looks aren’t suddenly going to stop falling altogether, forever.
He’s going to be just fine.
