But the truth is that Curry wasn’t his typical self, despite the win, in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
The iconic guard put up 16 points, which is low by his standards.
More surprisingly, he also went 0-of-9 from beyond the three-point line.
That put an end to some incredible scoring streaks.

With zero three-pointers on Monday, his historic streak is over.
That means that Curry had 233 straight games in the regular season and playoffs where he made at least one three-pointer.
He also had at least one trey in all 132 career playoff games and also had 38 straight playoff games with multiple threes.
It’s a shame that his streak has come to an end but no one can deny just how impressive it was.
That’s just the sort of player Curry is.
There is a good reason why he’s called the greatest NBA shooter of all time.
The Chef Is Still Hot
Yes, Curry didn’t have a great night on Monday but that didn’t slow down his Warriors from claiming a pivotal victory.
The series now sits at 3-2 in their favor, just one win away from claiming the championship yet again.
Curry rarely has nights like Monday – in fact, it’s literally been years since he has.
But one of the best things about Curry is that he is great at adapting, readjusting, and getting it back together quickly.
That means that Curry might enter Game 6 ready to be red-hot from the three-point line.
Fans of Golden State are hoping that he makes up for lost time and goes wild from downtown.
