Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry decided to challenge Chicago Bulls big man Lauri Markkanen early in Wednesday's game at United Center. 

Curry probably regretted his choice soon after the fact. 

With under 9:30 to play in the first quarter, the two-time NBA champion utilized a pump fake and some fancy dribbling to try to get by Markkanen. 

The 20-year-old did well to stay with Curry and reject his attempted layup. 

Curry suffered a bit of personal embarrassment when the blocked shot ricocheted off his dome and out of play. 

That's a rough way to lose possession.
