    To stay infront of him, follow his chest. Don't be afraid of physical play when trying to prevent your opponent from driving in. You can always hang back & take the charge. Try to pressure his strong arm & steal the ball. Since you're quicker, he shouldn't be able to outplay you when being guarded by you. He may out smart you so play smart (obviously). If none of this works, just run a zone defense & have your big man ready to provide you with some help defense.

    Klay Thompson was bodying him up, you slide your feet and keep him inside your body. You can also force him left and then when he crosses back to his right steal it

    If he cant use his left hand very well, stay in front of him more so on his right side. Make him dribble left to the rim. Stay a step in front of him. If he gets by you, you can only hope for the block.

    just stay infront of him, follow his chest, don't be afraid to bump him with your chest when he starts to drive.
