Why Warriors aspirations aren’t in peril: Stephen Curry’s proven greatness
Stephen Curry went 3-for-10 from three-point range against the Mavericks, and while he’s been having some issues shooting the ball this season, Curry is still the greatest shooter to ever take the court and should be able to turn his slump around.
Even if it isn’t turned around until the postseason, having Curry will always allow the Warriors to have a fighting chance. He’s had 6 40-point games this season and is widely considered one of the league’s most lethal scorers.
Curry is on pace to have the first season of his career in which he’s not hit at least 40% of his attempts from deep. It’s clearly more of a rarity for Curry to struggle at such a high rate.
His field goal percentage is also the lowest of his career despite his usage rate above his career average. Curry is getting the look and taking them without hesitation. They’ll start going down as he stays involved.
Still clearly in his prime and an MVP candidate earlier in the season, Curry has greatness in him and should be able to help captain the Warriors into a deep postseason run, especially with Klay Thompson starting to get more involved.
