With 3 1/2 minutes remaining in the first half of Monday's 94-92 loss at Sacramento, Warriors head coach Mark Jackson called a timeout and directed his message to point guard Stephen Curry.

"I said, 'You're shooting like me,' " said Jackson, a career 33.2 percent shooter from three-point range. "He said, 'No, you would have made at least one of them.' "

Four games into the season, it's easy for the Warriors to laugh off Curry's slow start, but if the historically accurate shooter's woes continue much longer, the smiles will disappear.

Curry entered the season as the only player in NBA history with career shooting percentages of at least 47 from the field, 44 from three-point range and 90 from the free-throw line. He was No. 2 all-time in three-point shooting and No. 3 from the foul line.

After starting 0-for-10 in the season opener at Phoenix and missing his first eight field-goal attempts in Sacramento on Monday, Curry is shooting 32.3 percent from the floor and 34.5 percent from three-point range. He missed three consecutive free-throw tries for the first time in his career and already has missed five foul shots - a startling number considering he missed 15 of 227 in 2010-11.

"I don't know how to explain it," Curry said. "I've had really good looks. I'm just not making them. I don't feel like I'm forcing anything. I'm going to stay confident and keep shooting. I've got to get that percentage up, somehow.

"It's not confusing, but it's a weird feeling to have open shots that I'm not making. But there's no panic from me, at all."
