Curry left the Warriors losing 125-119 in the third quarter after an injury. On the previous play, Curry missed a 3-pointer and the long rebound led to a quick break for the Pacers. When Jalen Smith went to the basket, Curry reached for a steal. Despite making contact with the ball, he was unable to strip it and injured his shoulder in the process.
Curry immediately grabbed his shoulder and was in so much pain that the Warriors had to call a timeout to get him out. He then forced his way into the locker room and was ruled out for the rest of the game shortly thereafter. Curry finished with 38 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.
