Stephen Curry is lighting up the league once again, averaging 32.6 points and 6.9 assists per game. He’s coming off a season-high 47-point explosion on Monday night where he made 17-of-24 shots in a win against the Sacramento Kings. He also added 8 rebounds and 8 assists.

The 2021 Finals MVP is averaging a career-high in points and rebounds along with a career-high in three-point attempts. That speaks to both the elite level he’s playing at right now along with the weight on his shoulders. Monday night’s win over the Kings snapped a 5-game losing streak for the Warriors.

Curry’s hot start to the season is a credit to his talent and work ethic, but it is concerning that the Warriors need these kinds of performances from him to register on the win column. He’s playing at a supernova level but not much else is going right for Golden State. Both Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole have been up-and-down with their play. Curry’s play is masking a lot of their issues.

Despite Curry’s greatness this season, the Warriors have gotten off to a less-than-ideal start to the season. They are just 4-7 through 11 games and they have some questions that’ll need to be answered if they want to repeat as champions. Still, as long as Curry is playing like this, they’ll have a shot to win every single night. If he keeps it up and the Warriors start to string some wins together, he’ll certainly be in the MVP conversation.
