The Big O Validated By Spurs Big Defensive Effort ?

Somewhere NBA Hall Of Famer Oscar Robertson has got to be smiling right ? It was only a few weeks ago when the Big O challenged NBA coaches to put on their thinking caps when trying to slow down the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors and reigning league MVP Steph Curry. The Big O said it was really a matter of common sense. Well after the NBA’s top two teams got together this past weekend an 87-79 San Antonio Spurs strangle hold on the Warriors. Either Greg Poppovich listened to The Big O or he really is a rocket scientist. The Spurs played suffocating defense on the Splash Brothers all night long and dogged Curry on defense just as Robertson suggested NBA teams do. Was this a case of Curry having a rare off night ? Did the Spurs give the rest of the NBA the blueprint on stopping Curry ? Furthermore can anyone else duplicate what San Antonio was able to do on Saturday night ? Stay tuned.
