Stephen Curry Remains Steady While Other NBA Talent Struggles

The NBA switched the provider of its game balls this season from Spalding to Wilson ending a more than 30-year partnership between the league and the sporting goods manufacturer. This change has sparked criticism from many players around the league as they adjust to the feel of the new ball. One player who seems virtually unaffected though is Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry who has led the Warriors to a 12-2 record, the best in the entire NBA, on the back of his 28.7 points per game while shooting just over 40% from beyond the arc.

Stephen Curry's Greatest Shots of all Time

With scoring down an average of 2% league-wide, Steph continues the torrid pace he set for himself last season, albeit lower than the 32 he averaged last season when the Warriors were sadly swept out of the play-in tournament at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies.

Watch The Highlights of Steph's Historic Performance

After scoring 37 in 29 minutes against the Nets on Tuesday Steph moved into sole possession of yet another obscure NBA record becoming the first player in the 3-pt era to have 5 games with 35+ points while playing less than 30 minutes. With Klay Thompson soon coming back from injury and role players like Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole providing good minutes, this Warriors team could be hoisting that Larry O'B at the end of the season and bringing it back to San Francisco.
