PBT Extra with NBASavant.com: Cleveland may want to cover Curry in the left corner

3 Comments

Mike Conley did as good a job sticking with Stephen Curry as a coach could hope when the Memphis Grizzlies took on Golden State. The Houston Rockets’ defenders… not so much.

Curry got open looks — he was 7-of-7 against the Rockets from the left corner. But even when they covered him it didn’t help.

PBT has partnered with the fantastic NBASavant.com to break down the Sports VU Camera data and look more closely at the advanced stats of the NBA playoffs and what decided a series.

Cleveland’s defense has looked better in the playoffs than it has all season, but starting next Thursday it will get the biggest test it has had all season.
