Anyway Curry was doubled HARD off the Pick and Roll to the point where Mozgov and Tristan T were at times like 35 feet away from the basket. This thoroughly broke down the Cavs D and created a far more efficient Warriors offense. There's a reason why Green, Iggy, Barnes and Klay etc. had wide open shots and driving lanes to the basket throughout the series.

But nobody seems to give Curry credit for creating the Warriors offense. He probably had more hockey assists than points. Delly actually defended Curry about as well you could fighting through screens and he still got torched outside of game 2. I'm honestly shocked he didn't even receive a single FMVP vote. (Further showing how useless the award is) They gave it to Iggy basically because he defended LeBron so well and the Warriors looked a lot better with him in the starting line up. But without Curry's scoring and running, the Warriors offense where he was creating open looks for Barnes, Iggy, and Green, the Warriors would've been dead. He became content that he would be double teamed and traped most of the nigh, so he spread that ball around well causing the Cavs to get out of defensive balance and the rest of his team thrived. When the game got a little close and Steph saw daylight he hit them up for two crucial threes followed by an assist for another three which effectively broke the Cavaliers back.

Pretty sure you posted this in another thread. Still the truth nonetheless.
