Stephen Curry just keeps outdoing himself. The Golden State Warriors superstar is on one of the most amazing runs in NBA history, with his 49-point effort Monday night in a 107-96 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, giving him 30 or more points in 11 straight games, a first for a player age 33 or older.
Curry is averaging 39.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists over 10 games in April. He went 10-for-17 from long range on Monday night and has hit 54 3-pointers over his past six games, with 10 or more in four of the last five games. Not coincidentally, the Warriors are on their best stretch of the season, winning five of six.
Curry's exploits drew cries for him to be the league's MVP on social media.
