Gregg Popovich drops truth bomb on anti-Stephen Curry game plan

Stephen Curry Warriors Steve Kerr Spurs Gregg Popovich

San Francisco, CA – When playing against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, you have to understand you’re not going to stop no. 30. The only way you can stop Curry is if he stops himself. It’s a concept that San Antonio Spurs coach Greg Popovich understands.

Saturday, the Spurs stole a game against the Warriors on their home turf. Curry finished with a game-high 27 points but got off to a plodding start. In the first half, he was a shocking 1-of-11 from the field. During the postgame interview, Popovich was asked about the defensive effort his team applied on Curry.

“I thought we did well until he decided to do what he wanted to do, and then he did what he wanted to do way better than anything we wanted to do. That’s who he is,” Popovich told ClutchPoints of the Warriors star.

After having only 10 points in the first half, the two-time MVP found his stride in the second half. He scored 17 points and even helped give the Warriors a lead late in the fourth quarter.

Once Curry got it going, the Spurs could do nothing but hold on for dear life. They did enough to secure a 112-107 victory even though they only scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. In the game of basketball, it’s never about how you won. It’s all about who won. Saturday night, coach Popovich finished on top, and that’s all that matters.
