Stephen Curry will need help from his teammates in the Golden State Warriors, according to his former teammate Zaza Pachulia.

As Pachulia notes, Curry will struggle offensively if his teammates are not productive and can’t offer him help.

“Same thing goes with Steph. It started with Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green setting screens to get him open, Klay helps because teams cannot really load on Steph because if you leave Klay open, Klay’s going to make 14 3s against the Chicago Bulls.

With Kevin Durant, one of the best players in the league, Steph has more freedom and he can be who he is. But if you have this amazing defender on him and a big man down there waiting for him, then Steph is going to struggle, too,” Pachulia said about Curry, via Wes Goldberg of the Bay Area News Group.

Curry had 20 points (7/21 shooting, 2/10 from beyond the arc) and 10 assists in the Warriors’ blowout loss to the Brooklyn Nets in the season opener (99-125).

Curry and the Warriors will face the Milwaukee Bucks on Christmas Day.
