Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and Indiana Pacers forward Paul George were rewarded for their outstanding individual play in the months of October and November by being named NBA player’s of the month.
The reigning MVP Steph Curry has gotten the defending champion Warriors off to a historic 20-0 start, and has managed to perform even better than his MVP season thus far. Curry is leading the league in scoring at (31.9 ppg) his field goal percentage is at 51% and his 102 treys this season puts him in position to shatter his own record for threes in a season (272). If he manages to keep up these percentages for the season, he will be the eighth player in NBA history to accomplish the 50-40-90 feat.
George, entered the season skeptical of playing the stretch-four position but change has been an absolute matchup nightmare for opposing teams. He is the main reason that the Indiana Pacers are off to a surprising 12-5 start this season, second only to the Cavaliers. PG-13 is riding the longest streak of 20+ points of his career and is 27.4 ppg are fourth in the league, proving to be an even better player after his gruesome right leg injury last year.
