After the Golden State Warriors defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 with Stephen Curry picking up several key steals, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were asked if Curry is underrated as a defender.
Westbrook audibly laughed at the question that Durant then went on to answer after briefly pausing.
"I mean, getting steals, I don't know if that's just -- that's a part of playing defense, but he's pretty good, but he doesn't guard the best point guards," said Durant. "I think they do a good job of putting a couple of guys on Russell from [Klay] 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."
