Bulls head coach Scott Skiles was upset with Curry being held to
just one rebound in the game.
"I wish everyone would stop focusing on so much of Eddy's
scoring, because that makes my job very difficult," said Skiles.
"He needs a lot of work on his defense and his rebounding. Just by
pure athleticism, agility and skill, he's going to score in
Curry agreed with Skiles' assessment.
"I think I definitely need to improve on rebounding and playing
defense," said Curry. "That's something on the front of my mind.
I really don't focus on scoring in the games, I take what comes to
me and what my teammates present to me."
