Mychal Thompson on Matthew Dellavedova: “It’s a joke to think he can stop Steph Curry”


The story of the 2015 Finals so far as been Matthew Dellavedova, who has stepped into the Cavs’ starting lineup since Kyrie Irving went down, taking the defensive assignment of guarding Stephen Curry. He’s taken over the city of Cleveland and become something of a cult hero. One person who isn’t impressed, though, is Mychal Thompson, former NBA player and father of Klay.

Theoretically, he’s right. But Curry has not shot well in the Finals, save for a fourth-quarter explosion in Game 3. Maybe the Dellavedova magic will run out before the series is over. But for now, it looks like that’s exactly what he’s doing.
