Stephen Curry tried to celebrate Klay Thompson's dunk, but tripped and wiped out instead

The floor has not been kind to Warriors point guard Stephen Curry lately.

During the second quarter of Monday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Curry was sitting on the bench with a pregame shooting shirt in his lap while teammate Klay Thompson threw down a dunk to put the Warriors up 44-24.

After Thompson’s dunk, Curry stood up to celebrate, but the shirt fell from his lap to the ground in the process.

Curry then stepped on the shirt and wiped out right in front of where the Warriors coaches were sitting. Assistant coach Mike Brown appeared to point and laugh at the former MVP once hit he hit the ground.

During a game against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center last week, Curry was gearing up for a dunk attempt, but slipped on the floor and lost the ball instead.

Curry offered the following explanation for the incident during an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Tuesday:

“See, what happened was the L.A. Kings had a game right before us and they must not have put the floor back on top of the ice all the way, ’cause there was a little wet spot and I slipped,” he said. “In my head, like, I knew I was about to do something crazy, a 360, a dunk I’ve never done in my life, and, uh, it just didn’t happen.”
