The greatest shooter of all-time is on the hottest scoring run of his career. Stephen Curry is once again playing like an MVP, putting his team on his back and carrying it into the Western Conference playoffs. It's hard to overstate just how remarkable Curry's current run has been, so let's just let the numbers do the talking.
Curry is averaging 38.7 points per game in April, which is on pace to be the highest such mark of any calendar month throughout his remarkable career (min. five games played). Over the past 25 seasons, the only players who averaged more points in a calendar month than Curry this month are James Harden and Kobe Bryant. Entering Friday's game against the Denver Nuggets (10 p.m. ET on ESPN), Curry has poured in 535 points over his past 15 games, dating to March 14.
But it's not just the buckets. It's also his incredible efficiency. Curry has been logging video game numbers, and he recently became the first player to average 40 points on 50% shooting, 40% on 3-pointers and 90% on free throws over an 11-game span. You're not supposed to be able to do that, but rules don't apply to the greatest shooter ever.
