Ty Lawson Says Steph Curry Was Chillin’ on Defense in Western Conference Finals

The Golden State Warriors cruised through the 2015 Western Conference Finals, topping the Houston Rockets 4-1 en route to claiming the franchise's first title in 40 years.

And the way Ty Lawson sees it, Steph Curry cruised through his defensive duties just the same—though not in a good way.

The former Denver Nuggets point guard reportedly studied the NBA's Most Valuable Player before landing in Houston by way of trade in July, telling Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski he thought Curry was "just chillin'" on the defensive end:

Steph Curry needed someone to go back at him. I thought Steph was just chillin’ on defense—and then going crazy on offense. He looked like he was just putting shots up and not working so much on the defensive end. He would just come down and hit three or four 3s. He can shoot when he’s got his legs under him. ...

... I'm not saying, 'Oh, I’m going to stop Steph,' but just make him work harder at the other end. I saw that in the Cavs series too. He wasn’t really working at the other end.
