Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was extremely hot from the three-point line on Thursday night vs. the Indiana Pacers.
Curry went six-for-six from three during the first quarter, hitting shots from all across the floor. His sixth shot of the hot streak came over a double-team that seemed determined to stop him.
Fans were excited to see Curry fire to start the game—that was until coach Steve Kerr decided to pull him from the game and give him some rest to close out the first quarter.
Curry returned to the game in the second quarter with seven minutes and 20 seconds left, but not before some NBA fans let out their frustration with Kerr.
