Curry had a poor shooting night by his standards. He went 7-for-19 and 1-of-7 on threes, giving him 15 points in the loss. As he was walking to the tunnel in the Pepsi Center after the game, you could see a fan hanging out by the aisle appearing to yell something to the sharpshooter. Rather than continuing into the locker room, Curry decided to reverse course and confront the fan. He pointed his finger at the fan as if to say he knew the fan had said something. The fan appeared to quickly retreat.
Curry confirmed after the game that he got into it with a fan.
“Somebody said something dumb and I just told him to be quiet, that was it,” Curry said of the incident, per the Mercury News’ Tim Kawakami.
Replays showed that Curry telling the fan “shut your mouth” a few times. The fan shut up quickly, but then perked back up and continued taunting the Warriors after Curry went away.
Let this be the latest lesson to fans that you can’t get away with saying anything you want to players. Some actually will respond. Some will even hunt you down.
