Curry has recently been on an incredible shooting streak. He recently extended his three-point shooting streak to 13 games. He has shot at least 4 three-pointers for 13 consecutive games. Curry tied James Harden for the longest streak for 4 three-point shots in games.

Curry has been fantastic this season. He is currently averaging 29.6 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds. These numbers are very similar to his 2015-16 season when Curry became the only unanimous MVP in history.

However, the Warriors are still struggling to pick up. Despite Curry’s great play, he hasn’t been able to help the Warriors get going this season.

Curry is currently considered one of the favorites to win the MVP. He is playing some of the best basketball of his career.

However, because of the poor form of the Golden State Warriors, his efforts have been negated and his position in the MVP race has suffered the same fate.

But people are still astonished by the performances that he has consistently put up since the start of the season.

Curry not able to pick up the Warriors’ form

The Warriors are struggling primarily because of the loss of Klay Thompson. Thompson spent the entire last season on the shelf with an ACL tear.

And he was ready to come back this season. However, he suffered another injury during a pickup game in the off-season and tore his Achilles, shackling him to the bench for yet another season.

However, the Warriors did try to replace the void that Klay left. They traded for Kelly Oubre Jr., but he has not performed as people have expected him to.
