New Sacramento Kings head coach Mike Brown received the ultimate praise from Steph Curry last night for helping the Golden State Warriors’ defense.
(Via House of Highlights):
“Mike Brown has been amazing in terms of re-establishing the importance of that side of the basketball, from training camp to now, and not letting anybody slip up in terms of accountability on that end of the floor. You know, we’ve tried a lot of different things over the course of year, traditional man coverage, all the box-and-one, zone stuff that we can kind of sprinkle in from time to time. But at the end of the day, it’s just effort and intensity and kind of relentlessness on that front. We’ve done a really good job of maintaining that for the most part throughout the year and trying to plug in where there’s a little, I guess you call it deficiencies compared to teams of the past. I think we are No. 2 defense for a reason, so it’s pretty cool.”
