Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry says he’ll just “keep shooting” after his poor three-point showing in his side’s 104-94 Game 5 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday.

Curry made none-of-nine attempts from three-point range, finishing with 16 points with eight assists as the Warriors took a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals. Curry had come into the game after 132 straight postseason games with at least one three-pointer made.

Andrew Wiggins stepped up for Golden State with 26 points and 13 rebounds, while Klay Thompson hit five triples in his 21 points.

“Keep shooting,” Curry said about his mentality despite his shooting struggles.

“Very simple. I’m not afraid to go none-for-whatever because I’m going to keep shooting and taking shots that you normally feel like you can make. I’ve responded well when I’ve had games like that from the three-point line.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been happier after a none-for-whatever type of night, just knowing the context of the game, the other ways you tried to impact the game and the fact that you had four guys step up in meaningful ways to help us win offensively.”

The victory means the Warriors are one game away from lifting the NBA title, with the series returning to Boston for Game 6.

The Celtics had closed within a point at the final change after a 35-24 third quarter, but Golden State won the final quarter 29-20.

“When were at our best, its simple ball movement,” Celtics coach Ime Udoka said.

“I think the third quarter showed that. The drive and kick was beautiful, was working, getting guys wide-open shots.”
