Stephen Curry had a frustrating Game 5, scoring just 15 points while missing six of his seven three-pointers in a 107-100 loss to the Nuggets. He was playing through injury and suggested that the Nuggets targeted his injuries with dirty plays early in the game.
That frustration boiled over immediately following the game. As he was heading into the tunnel, he got involved in a verbal altercation with a Nuggets fan. Here's what happened.
It's not clear what set Curry off. This is all he would say about it.
Stephen Curry said the fan "said something stupid" so Curry "told him to shut up."— Marcus Thompson (@gswscribe) May 1, 2013
Curry is not normally one to get upset in this manner, so we'll see if more information comes out.
