NBA News: Stephen Curry Unsatisfied With Warriors Overall Performance
Unanimous 2016 MVP Stephen Curry is not satisfied with how his team is currently performing.
The Golden State Warriors are currently at the top of the NBA standings, holding a record of 28-5. They have won five of their last six games, with their most recent victory against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, with a final score of 121-111.
The Warriors were on a seven-game winning streak, only for it to be snapped by the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Christmas Day, with the game ending in a narrow defeat 109-108. Despite being able to get back in the win column with their recent victory, Curry took the loss to heart and he is clamoring for major changes with their style of play.
"I definitely want to be in more pick-and-roll situations. Whether I'm getting shots or whether we're manufacturing ball movement, that's a strength of ours, regardless of how teams play us," Curry said via ESPN.com.
The Warriors are expected to be one of the top teams to contend with this season, given the arrival of superstar forward Kevin Durant during the off-season. "KD's" presence in the team was seen as a boost to their offense, at the very least.
Clearly, Curry is no longer the lone superstar on the Warriors' roster. But according to head coach Steve Kerr, his superstar guard is still performing at his very best, and he is only expecting him to further improve his all around game.
"I think Steph has probably had the biggest adjustment of all of our players from [Durant]'s arrival. I think if you look at it from a practical standpoint, he's doing great. His numbers are still fantastic," Kerr said.
Through the 33 games they've played, Curry has continued to pile on the numbers, averaging 24.2 points per outing. Along with the points, he is also compiling 4.2 rebounds and 5.9 assists, through 46.7 percent field goal shooting. But he does have to share a bit more with Durant in town.
