Steve Kerr Reveals What He Said After Steph Curry's Buzzer-beating 3-pointer

On Monday night against the Pacers, Steph Curry scored 26 points. That number is nothing crazy considering he's averaging 29.3 points per game this season.

"We kind of do expect him to make everything," Steve Kerr told reporters after practice on Wednesday. "But the stepback the other night before half -- that was beyond 30 feet. I just turned to Mike (Brown) and said, 'You got to be kidding me.'

"It just looked so routine, like it was stepback 18 footer -- not a 34 footer. He's in a great groove and it's fun to watch."
