Steph, Wiggins among highest-scoring NBA teammate duos

Warriors

Steph Curry has been scoring at a rate higher than any in his illustrious 12-year NBA career this season, averaging 30.7 points per game in 2020-21. Normally he and Klay Thompson comprise one of the league's most dynamic scoring duos, but Thompson's second consecutive season-ending injury once again has left Curry without his fellow Splash Brother.

However, Curry still ranks among the NBA's most proficient scoring duos, just with Andrew Wiggins as his sidekick this season.

In his first full season with the Warriors, Wiggins has averaged 18.1 points per game while shooting a career-best 38.7 percent from 3-point range.

Not only has Wiggins been the Warriors' No. 2 option on offense, but he has handled a number of difficult defensive assignments against the NBA's best wing players.

Draymond Green is averaging a career-high 8.5 assists, but only putting up 6.6 points per game, which would be his lowest season-long mark since the 2013-14 season.

The Warriors will need Curry and Wiggins to continue and even up that scoring average as the season winds down, with the Warriors in the thick of the Western Conference playoff chase. Currently in ninth place, the Warriors can't afford to drop many games down the stretch.

Curry is on an unprecedented tear of late, and hopefully some of that magic will rub off on his teammates in the final weeks of the season.
