DENVER, Colo. (CBS Sports) — People are going crazy over the shooting display that Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been putting on during his series against the Denver Nuggets.
And why wouldn’t you? He has been hitting 3-point shots, pull-up jumpers and floaters from all angles and distances as Golden State has grabbed a 3-1 series lead. It’s not just that he’s scoring and leading his team’s offense; it’s that it appears all of his points are coming in big runs that demoralize the defense and put his team over the top.
So, why does Curry shoot so well against the Nuggets? Wager to say it’s because they’re so bad at defending him.
