How Matisse Thybulle made life difficult for Stephen Curry in the 76ers’ most impressive win of the season

Article Summary:

Thybulle, who was named to the All-Defensive Second Team last year in his second NBA season, was tasked with slowing Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry when the 76ers hosted the Warriors, and he proved to be up to the challenge in Philly’s 102-93 victory.

Curry is arguably the toughest player in the league to guard, but Thybulle did as good a job as anyone has done this season, as he consistently minimized Curry’s airspace and just generally made things difficult for the two-time MVP. Over the course of the contest, Thybulle held Curry to 2 of 13 shooting from the floor as the primary defender, including holding him to just 1 of 9 from beyond the arc. In all, Curry shot just 6 of 20 against the Sixers – well below his season average.
