Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova put the clamps on Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.

The numbers don't lie. Check out this graphic from NBA on ESPN:


When Matthew Dellavedova guarded Steph Curry, the MVP didn't make a single basket. #NBAFinals http://t.co/ArMCD5z8lI

Charles Barkley doesn't see it that way, though.

While appearing on Bleacher Report Radio on Monday afternoon, the TNT analyst said the notion that Delly stopped Curry is "ridiculous."

"People need to slow down giving [Dellavedova] so much credit," Sir Charles added on The B/R Spotlight with Nicole Zaloumis and Ric Bucher. "Steph Curry will kill that kid in the overall scheme of things. He just didn't make shots last night."

We'll see if Dellavedova can continue to contain the MVP when Golden State travels to Cleveland for Game 3 on Tuesday night.
