Stephen Curry is playing very well.
The Warriors have outscored opponents by 174 points with him on the floor through just 12 games (+14.5 per game). That puts him on pace to break Draymond Green‘s plus-minus record for a single season (+1070 in 2015-16).
So, is Curry peaking?
Green, via NBC Sports Bay Area:
I’m with Green on this. Curry won Most Valuable Player one year then contended for Most Improved Player the next. This isn’t his peak.
He’s just on a great team with Kevin Durant, Green and Klay Thompson. Durant (+143) isn’t far behind Curry, and Golden State is also blitzing opponents with Green (+86) and Thompson (+62 on the floor). Curry’s plus-minus must be contextualized.
Curry is a great player, and many others would kill for this to be their peak. But by the standard he set during his back-to-back MVP seasons, Curry is just coasting now.
