Kerr Dismisses Reports Saying Steph Not 100 Percent


Curry’s poor play over the past two games (7-of-17 shooting in Game 3, 6-of-20 with six turnovers in Game 4, a combined 5-for-21 on 3s) is so unexpected that it spawned speculation that he is seriously diminished by the sprained MCL he suffered in Game 4 of the opening-round series against the Houston Rockets. The Warriors have lost two games in a row for the first time all season and face a 3-1 deficit to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference finals.

Kerr dismissed a Yahoo! Sports report that quoted a non-Warriors source as saying Curry is playing at 70 percent. “Is that ‘sources with knowledge of the team’s thinking?’ ” Kerr asked Wednesday afternoon. “Nobody has said anything about Steph being 70 percent to me. Training staff, relatives, friends, sources with knowledge of the team’s thinking — nobody has told me he’s 70 percent. Evidently they told the media but not me.”
