Even with the likes of James Harden, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Blake Griffin putting in astonishing performances daily, Curry, the reigning Most Valuable Player, remains at his very best.
As well as averaging a league-high 32.4 points per contest, the Golden State Warriors guard seems unstoppable shooting from almost every spot of the floor.
They are mostly the same team that they were last season, and yet, at the same time, they’re different.
The defending champions currently hold a 8-0 record, and Curry remains a major factor for the team success, averaging 47 percent (41 for 87) from long range.
Although Houston Rockets guard James Harden, who finished second in the last season’s MVP voting, has stepped up in the offense end with the league second highest scoring average of 29.7 points per game, and four-time MVP LeBron James remains the key piece for the Cleveland Cavaliers (7-1), Curry continues playing at an elite level.
As the Warriors open a two-day and two-game on the road, visiting in Memphis and Minnesota, Curry is averaged a career-high 53.5 percent from the field, and more importantly, he is making threes as never seen before.
If you wonder if the Warriors are playing bette than last season when they collected a 67-15 record, Curry has the answer.
“We’re better than we were last year,” Curry said, following a 112-108 November 4 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
And, unsurprisingly, Curry is currently averaging a staggering 37.23 efficiency rate, well ahead of Griffin (31.45), Westbrook (30.19), and James (27-64).
