Steph Curry met Nick Johnson, a Rockets rookie that averaged just over two points per game, for the captains handshake.
Curry wasn’t pleased.
Tyler Brooke of Bleacher Report suggested that Curry was probably pissed because he was expecting James Harden or Dwight Howard. And I suspect that the Rockets did not send Harden, because they want to emphasize this series is not about the Harden vs. Curry MVP battle. Plus, they figured they could get under Curry’s skin.
Note to Houston: Don’t piss off the baby-faced assassin. You won’t like him when he’s angry…
