Draymond Green incredulous at the idea Stephen Curry is ‘peaking’ (video)
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.
