Warriors opponents are going to extreme lengths to try and slow down Steph Curry.
During Tuesday night’s 122-116 Golden State victory, the Phoenix Suns swarmed Curry with four defenders near half court.
The play didn’t work out, though, as Andrew Wiggins worked for a layup en route to tying his career high with 38 points.
For the first time in 11 games, Curry wasn’t the Warriors’ leading scorer. But you know Curry’s not complaining if extra attention leads to points for his teammates and victories for the Dubs.
A couple of weeks ago, the New Orleans Pelicans turned out the lights on Steph as he launched a 3-pointer. So at least the Suns’ tactic was within the rules of the game, right?
Curry finished the night with 21 points on 7-of-22 shooting but is still in position to claim his second NBA scoring title with his season average of 31.8 points per game. Whatever it takes to slow down Curry.
