Three in a row: Steph named Player of the Month once again originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Steph Curry and threes go together like ... well, you pick the perfect combination.
Curry is the greatest 3-point shooter of all time, is a three-time NBA champion and the Warriors superstar now has won three straight NBA Western Conference Player of the Month awards. On Thursday, Curry was named the West's October/November Player of the Month for his dominant start to the 2021-22 season.
Through 20 games, Curry averaged 27.8 points per game, which is second in the league to only Kevin Durant's 28.6. His 108 3-pointers lead the NBA, as does his 94.3 percentage from the free throw line. He also ranks ninth in the NBA by averaging 6.6 assists per game.
Curry has added to his all-around game and his 5.7 rebounds per game are a new career high. His 1.8 steals per game are the sixth-most in the league.
And he did this all while leading the Warriors to an 18-3 record, which is tied for the best in all of basketball.
Curry now has been named Player of the Month 10 times. Chris Mullin has the second-most by a Warrior with two.
The two-time MVP also is the only player this season to be named a Player of the Week twice already.
Durant was named the Eastern Conference's Player of the Month.
Imagine if those two played together. It probably would have been a pretty unstoppable squad.
