HOUSTON — MVP Stephen Curry was able to walk to the locker room after a nasty spill where he flipped over in the air and his head crashed to the court in Golden State’s Western Conference finals game against Houston on Monday night.
Curry jumped in the air as Trevor Ariza was about to go up for a shot. Ariza saw him and stopped abruptly, causing Curry to be upended in midair when he crashed into Ariza’s shoulder. His head hit the court and it propelled him up and back onto the floor where he remained for several minutes.
Curry looked dazed as he was attended to before slowly getting up and walking off the court.
He was called for a foul on the play and Ariza made both shots to extend Houston’s lead to 57-36 with about six minutes until halftime.
