Steve Kerr appreciates Stephen Curry’s playing skills after their game against the Blazers
We all know that Steph is a good passer but he mainly focuses on his attacking play, while Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala play the role of moving the ball, but in their absence it seems Curry decided to use their role for the Warriors which even their Head Coach Steve Kerr noticed and commented on (via 95.7 The Game):
“In the absence of Draymond and Andre, Steph understood that he had to become a more traditional stopper than usual because those two usually had the ball in hand for us, Steph could play high. In their absence, Steph needed to control the game, manage and operate it. I think he did a great job on that last night.”
Steve appreciated how 2xMVP controlled the game in the absence of Warriors stars. Curry is unstoppable against the Blazers because they couldn’t figure out how to defend the game against the two-time NBA champion.
“Steph chose his position wisely and did a good job of controlling the whole game but his passing was brilliant. They trapped him everywhere and he served cleanly and created a 4-3 advantage on all surfaces.” add Steve Kerr
Furthermore, Coach Kerr wants Curry to play more traditionally until their players return to the campaign. It will be interesting to see what role Stephen Curry will play to deliver results in their favor against Dallas on Sunday.
