After carrying the Golden State Warriors to victory in Game 4 on the road, Stephen Curry had a rough night Monday, missing all nine of his 3-point attempts at the Chase Center in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics.
Still, the Dubs pulled out a convincing 10-point win for the home town crowd, as the shooting forward turned scored 26 points and pulled down 13 rebounds help lead his team to a 104-94 victory.

Even with Curry mostly silent and power forward Draymond Green fouling by the games end, a strong fourth quarter showing by the Warriors will certainly give the Celtics something to think about when they face their San Francisco rivals on June 16.
