In the New York Knicks 116-95 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony revealed a new and exciting way to guard Stephen Curry.

It is often said Golden State Warriors defending NBA MVP Stephen Curry simply cannot be stopped.

His quickness, his ridiculous handle, his absurd shooting – it’s all part of a package that makes the 27-year old baller one of the best in the world.

If Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks didn’t know it prior to Sunday night, they now do after their 116-95 blowout loss to the defending champs. What’s worse is Curry didn’t even have a great night from the floor (5-17, 13 points).

Instead it was Klay Thompson who ripped the Knicks defense apart (34 points).

Nevertheless, Melo decided to showcase a new style of defense against the great Curry (video above). Instead of moving the feet laterally, just go schoolyard style with the hand on the forehead.

For those looking to find a way still, just understand this one thing: This method won’t work.
