Actually, Stephen Curry's shooting control ability is the top level, but he almost lost his self-confidence, some of this is because of his experience in his high school, and some reason is the need relaxing status.

In my mind, Golden State Warriors almost found the correct tactics when VS Houston Rockets, in the 4th period, the whole GSW players all in mid-range, thery became unstoppable, and when the Rockets's players defend for the mid-shots, they got more good chances for the three point shooting.

1. Take more and more mid-shots

Because of his best shooting skills, Stephen Curry can shoot from everywhere on the half-court, but if he try to find three point shooting chances almost everytime, the opponents will be easy to defend you, because you just run into a little piece area. Actually, Stephen Curry's mid-shot is still better than the others, when the most teammates hurts, take more mid-shot can give us more chances to take a three point shot, and better than the substitutions wasted the good shooting chances, because our live space is larger.
