Why Rozier picks Steph as toughest player to guard in NBA

There are a lot of NBA players who are difficult to guard, from Kevin Durant to LeBron James and Joel Embiid.

But to Terry Rozier, one guy stands out above the rest: Steph Curry.

The Hornets guard went on ESPN's "Jalen & Jacoby" on Thursday and dubbed Curry the toughest player to guard in the NBA.

As always, game recognize game. 

It's safe to assume Rozier was relieved when Curry was a late scratch from last Saturday's game in Charlotte with a minor illness. That game ended with Rozier knocking down a 20-footer at the buzzer to hand the Warriors a loss.

The illness only forced Curry to miss one game, as the Warriors star has since returned to the court and led Golden State to back-to-back wins over the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers.

The Warriors' next opponent? You guessed it, Rozier and the Hornets on Friday night.

With the buzzer-beating loss still fresh in their mind, the Warriors will be out for revenge when Rozier, LaMelo Ball and Co. arrive at Chase Center.
