NBA mailbag: Are Stephen Curry's shooting woes a bad sign for the Golden State Warriors?

Should Stephen Curry's shooting slump be a concern for the Golden State Warriors?

Despite Thursday's red-hot performance in a 124-115 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves (29 points on 10-of-20 shooting, including six 3-pointers in 10 attempts), this has still been Curry's least efficient full month of his NBA career.

Given the high expectations of contending for another championship the Warriors have generated with their surprisingly strong start, Curry's performance is back under the microscope. Even with the return of fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson, Golden State needs Curry performing near MVP caliber to get back to and win the NBA Finals.

This week's mailbag takes a look at whether Curry's recent performance should give us pause about his ability to play that well.
