“The randomness of their offense, the quick rip screen by a shooter and popping, the cutting through.  Steph Curry is most dangerous when he passes the ball, because now he’s cutting and everybody stands still and relaxes.

Who am I guarding, what are their tendencies, and when the ball is given up, don’t ball watch, don’t stand up, be ready to run and chase and stay connected.”
