Kerr: Curry not in a slump

Curry finished with 19 points on five of 23 shooting to go along with six rebounds and five assists in the Warriors' 95-93 overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. 

Despite air-balling his final shot of the game, Kerr reiterated that the reigning NBA MVP is not in a slump

"He's in a slump? Steph Curry's in a slump?" Kerr told reporters on Tuesday. "What'd he do in Game 1?" In that game, Curry scored 26 points and hit half his shots. Steph's fine. Steph's fine."

Kerr revealed that he is confident Curry will be back to his best in Game 3 on Tuesday, but added that the 27-year-old needs to take better shots. 

"We just have to get better shots for him and get him in a good rhythm," he said. "It was good defense by Cleveland, bad offense by us."

While Curry himself admitted that he did not take high percentage shots in Game 2, he refused to blame his performance on the head and elbow injuries he sustained during a scary fall in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets on May 25. 

"No, [the fall] had nothing to do with it," Curry said. "I feel good. I feel fine. I gotta shoot better."
