Stephen Curry's knee might not be 100 percent. 

His shooting stroke, though? That's looking in peak form.

The Golden State Warriors star was on fire from the arc during Friday's practice, draining 69 of his 75 threes in what could be a sign of things to come in Sunday's Game 3 matchup against the Houston Rockets. One stretch saw Curry hit a ridiculous 38 threes in a row. 

Hot take: Curry is better at shooting basketballs into cylindrical hoops than we are. 

The two-time NBA MVP has been held to 34 total points over the first two games of the series, including a 2-of-13 mark from long range.

No one expects Curry's drought to continue. Dude is already the greatest shooter of all time and knocked down at least three triples in every game he played against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Rockets are doing an excellent job of punishing Curry on the defensive end, forcing him into awkward switches and testing his conditioning. That more than anything—his shot sure ain't broken—has been holding Curry back.

But a little fun stretch like this in practice, along with a return to Oracle, may wind up boosting Curry's confidence.
