It’s the point guard matchup dreams are made of. Steph Curry vs. Russell Westbrook. If it weren’t for Curry running away with the MVP award thanks to one of the more transcendent seasons in recent memory, Westbrook would probably be getting a lot more attention for the silly 24.3 points, 10.2 assists, 7.5 rebounds and 2.2 steals he’s averaging.
Here’s a list of players who have averaged 20, 10, 7 and 2 in a season: _______. Westbrook would be the first.
Curry, meanwhile, is averaging 30.4 points per game despite sitting out many a fourth quarter, and through 55 games, he’s only 10 three-pointers away from his own record set last year. In other words, these aren’t just the two best point guards in the league. They are two players in the midst of historically great seasons.
Watching them go head-to-head is must-see material.
These two teams combined for 224 points in a thrilling contest that felt awfully similar to a postseason game a couple weeks ago, and this one figures to be more of the same.
