Sixers in awe of Matisse Thybulle after locking up Steph Curry in win

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Sixers made the move to start Matisse Thybulle in place of Danny Green in this one in order to slow Curry down and Thybulle did just that in a 102-93 win over the Warriors. “I’m a coach. I’m not sitting there impressed. I’m just sitting there getting him to do his job. Matisse was phenomenal. How many picks did he have to fight through tonight and keep going? Getting hit, getting hipped, getting butt picks, and he just kept doing it.”

Even with not being a huge part of the offense, he kept his head in it and he was able to make that big of an effort on defense. “He’s a great defender. When it’s time to step up and make a play in big moments, he’s always there when we need him. He played a helluva game defensively regardless of not seeing the ball offensively. He knew his assignment today. He killed it.”

A ton of credit has to go to Thybulle for not getting too down on himself when Curry was able to shake free and knock down a couple of big shots. “It’s just you got to play really hard, you got to be willing to get scored on, and he’s gonna make some spectacular plays, and you have to be able to play through that, and just trying to be a consistent force, and not let his success take you on a roller coaster.”

The Sixers will now head back on the road to take on the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.
