Coach Nick broke down every point Steph scored vs the questionable defense of the Pelicans last night. While Steph is capable of lighting up anybody at anytime, when poor defense is being played consistently, you’re much more likely to see him go off for career highs, and this is what we got from Jrue Holiday and the Pelicans on Halloween.

  • Honestly a lot of teams are needing to adjust to this teams lineups. Having watched the game against the clippers when they had Josh Smith out with Blake Griffen it made it easier for them to match up especially on screens give tonnes of credit to austin rivers but a lot of players ive noticed have a hard time with their lateral quickness making it very easy for players like curry to get open or to blow by. I think a lot of that though has to do with effort and a commitment to it. If you watched the way that Delavidova (I dont know how to spell it but owell) played defence against him in the finals is a way that everyone should. He played up on him and was physical with him. Its all about being aware and also battling over screens and moving your feet. A lot of NBA players have this issue unfortunately
