Warriors news: Kobe Bryant details adjustments Stephen Curry should make on defense

Kobe Bryant, Stephen Curry

NBA junkies have been loving Kobe Bryant’s new gig where he breaks down X’s and O’s of the NBA for his show Detail, which is available on ESPN+ and ESPN’s YouTube page.

Today Kobe released a new video in which he took a close look at the defense Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has been playing on James Harden of the Houston Rockets.

Bryant details the mentality of Harden in the different areas of the court that he is occupying, offering interesting insight into how the Warriors should defend him.

To Curry’s credit, he has done an admirable job on his switches onto Harden despite the Rockets’ relentless strategy of making Curry work extremely hard defending Harden one-on-one.

The Rockets were unable to exploit Curry’s perceived weak defense in Game 3 as the Warriors rolled to a 41-point win to take a 2-1 series lead.

But of course that doesn’t mean Curry’s defense was perfect and that the Warriors can’t do anything to improve. Maybe they watch Kobe’s insight to try and gain a little edge tonight.
