Programming note: Clippers-Warriors coverage starts tonight at 7:00 p.m. with Warriors Pregame Live on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
Through three games, the Warriors are allowing 90.3 points per game -- the second best mark in the NBA.
Stephen Curry, who averaged 1.6 steals per contest through the first five seasons of his career, leads the NBA with 3.7 steals per game. (6 steals vs. the Kings, 3 vs. the Lakers and 2 vs. the Blazers)
Following the Warriors' victory in Portland on Sunday night, Steve Kerr was complimentary of Curry's defense.
"Steph, as he showed last night against Jeremy Lin, has turned into an excellent defender," Kerr said. "He's quick, he's got great instincts."
He took it one step further following Tuesday's practice.
"Steph is fully engaged defensively. He's probably been our best defender through three games, in terms of always being prepared and ready, and not losing his assignment, pursuing his man on screen-and-roll."
In the Warriors' season-opening victory in Sacramento, Darren Collison scored just 13 points on 4-for-12 shooting.
Jeremy Lin's stat line against Curry from last Saturday night: six points (0-for-6 FG), five turnovers.
Damian Lillard's stat line against Curry from last Sunday night: 11 points on 4-for-18 shooting.
Curry will have his hands full Wednesday night against Chris Paul.
How do the Warriors plan to defend the First-Team All-NBA point guard?
"We'll probably mix it up on Chris, but Steph will have some chances at him for sure," Kerr said. "Especially the way he's played, I would feel very comfortable with that."
