Ever since joining the league, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has always been considered one of the most dangerous shooters in the league and on Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers–the guard showed us exactly why he’s in that category.
Curry came up big for the Warriors once again after scoring 28 points in the team’s 106-99 win over the Clippers on Monday–their 25th win of the season. It’s one thing for Curry to display an impressive offensive performance, but the fact that he managed to hit six three-pointers shows just how dangerous he can be on the floor and will be a key factor to Golden State’s success over the rest of the regular season.
The Warriors have been one of the biggest surprises of the 2012-13 season and currently hold the No. 5 spot in the playoff standings in the Western Conference. There’s no reason why Golden State couldn’t emerge as a surprise contender in the Western Conference as long as Curry manages to stay healthy considering he’s one of the league’s most dangerous shooters.
For a player averaging over 20 points, four rebounds, and six assists per game, Golden State certainly has something special in a player like Curry. Hopefully, his numbers manage to stay this way over the course of the rest of the regular season.
And if he does manage to keep these types of numbers up–there’s no reason why Curry won’t have the Warriors in the talk of playoffs once the season comes to an end in April.
