Curry Can’t Make Three, Warriors Fall to Lakers


Stephen Curry went 0-for-10 from deep Friday night, snapping his record of 157 consecutive games with a 3-pointer made. That’s at once an aberration and an expected, eventual disruption of routine quality. It’s a stat that illustrates a particularly frustrating night, though, for a team that’s compiling a few frustrations.

In what’s becoming something of a tradition, the Golden State Warriorsgot smacked at Staples Center by the Los Angeles Lakers, this time 117-97. Last season, on March 6, the Lakers throttled the Warriors here, 112-95. The season before, two days before Christmas, Golden State got soundly beaten in Los Angeles, 115-105. “It was our annual beatdown at Staples,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
