Steph Curry pulled a Nick Young by prematurely celebrating a missed 3-pointer

Steph Curry is the best shooter on the planet, so there’s no problem with him being confident. That’s going to happen.

But when you celebrate a shot before the basketball goes through the hoop, you run the risk of pulling a Nick Young. That also happened to Curry on Monday night.

In the first quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Curry had space to get off a corner 3-point attempt as Kyrie Irving contested the shot. Curry got the shot off in time and turned his back to face the crowd in celebration of his 3. He thought for sure he had made the shot.

The only problem — he missed.

Never go full Nick Young. Especially in the NBA Finals.
