Stephen Curry vows to stay 'confident' after the Timberwolwes game

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry found himself in a bit of a shooting slump recently but everything clicked for him on Thursday night against the Minnesota Timberwolwes. Curry shot 6-of-10 beyond the three point line as he finished the game with a team-high 29 points in the Warriors' 124-115 win over the Timberwolwes.

"Stay confident, keep taking shots I feel like I can make," Curry said. "It's the balance of maintaining who I am on the court and how I enjoy the game even when things aren't going my way. That joy has to remain. Everybody feeds off of it.

... If I'm in my feelings and thinking about my shot, it takes away from everything else that we do. "When a couple goes down early it's a good feeling. You want to ride that energy, that wave."

Curry happy with the consistency

"We've had two or three games with a consistent rotation, which is helpful," Curry said.

Klay Thompson, who missed the last two seasons, also had a good performance against the Timberwolwes. Thompson shot 5-of-9 from the three point line as he finished the game with 23 points. "It's a really good indicator of what our team can look like with Klay back and everybody healthy, for the most part, in terms of our shooters," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

"With these last couple of games, the spacing that we've had and the ball movement, we've gotten great shots." The Warriors are still adjusting to the lineup with Thompson in it. "Two and a half years is a long time," Kerr said of Thompson's absence, "and the teammates around them have changed." Thompson is confident it will only get better from here.

"I thought we were going to play like this my first game back. Maybe I was a little naive," Thompson said. "It's going to get better every night. And when our full squad is back, it's going to be real scary."
