Steph's MVP-level season defined by this awesome photo originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

There' no right way to guard Steph Curry. Going on a wing and a prayer really might be the smartest strategy to slow down the Warriors superstar. 

There is a wrong way to guard Curry, though. This is a case of the more the merrier. Teams better put at least two defenders on the NBA's leading scorer. 

Scott Strazzante of the San Francisco Chronicle captured the perfect photo of what Curry's season could be defined by Sunday in the Warriors' 113-101 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

Three Grizzlies, no luck. 

With 8:51 remaining in the fourth quarter, Jaren Jackson Jr. was guarding Curry when Dillon Brooks and Desmond Bane collapsed on the two-time MVP. Jackson was hit with a foul, and Curry, of course, made both his free throws to give Golden State an 88-77 lead.

Curry wound up scoring 46 points in the win, willing the Warriors to the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. He won the scoring title, passing Warriors legend and Hall of Famer Rick Barry on the NBA's all-time scoring list as well.

Steph wound up averaging a career-best 32.0 points per game while shooting 42.1 percent from 3-point range on a career-high 12.7 attempts per game.

One defender, two defenders, three defenders, four. Not much worked for opposing teams this season.
