New Orleans Pelicans: How will the Pelicans stop Curry?

The Pelicans watched in awe as Stephen Curry dismantled them in the first quarter last night and they were never able to recover.

What more can you say about this guy? He is 33-years-old and leading the NBA in scoring, and if the Warriors were a little higher in the standings, he’d be the MVP and I am not sure he shouldn’t be anyway, as no one in the NBA is doing more with less than Curry is right now.

It didn’t matter who the Pelicans put on him last night, as Curry was in his bag and couldn’t be stopped, often making the defenders look silly in the process:

Stan Van Gundy has to come up with something different. Maybe the super inconsistent Lonzo Ball should get the primary Curry duty?

I can only say good luck to Lonzo, Eric Bledsoe and SVG, as no one has been able to stop Curry this season, so all they can hope for is to slow him down a bit.
