Russell Westbrook Laughs When Asked If Steph Curry Was An Underrated Defender (Video)
On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors extended the Western Conference Finals for at least one more game thanks to a 120-111 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder at Oracle Arena on Thursday.
During the 4th quarter of Game 5, Steph Curry came up with a clutch steal against Kevin Durant, pretty much sealing the game in the waning moments.
After the game, ESPN reporter Michelle Steele asked both Westbrook & Durant whether the NBA’s steals leader was “underrated as a defender.”
Westbrook let out a giggle while covering his face, while Durant had this to say:
“I mean, getting steals, I don’t know if that’s — that’s a part of playing defense. He’s pretty good, but he doesn’t guard the best point guards. I think they do a good job of putting a couple of guys on Russell, from Thompson to [Andre] Iguodala — and Steph, they throw him in there sometimes. He moves his feet pretty well. He’s good with his hands. But, you know, I like our matchup with him guarding Russ.”
