Steph Curry and Kevin Durant were named Players of the Month for October/November 2021-22, the NBA announced. The former Warriors teammates were two of the best performers in this first stretch of the current NBA season, leading the Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets to the top of the Western and Eastern Conference respectively.
Curry has led the way for Golden State during its 18-3 start to the season. After winning his second career scoring title last season, Curry hasn’t slowed down over his first 20 games of the 2021-22 season with averages of 27.8 points (45.2% shooting from the field and 41.2% from 3-point), 6.6 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals. He has scored 40-plus points four times, including an NBA-season-high 50 points against the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 8.
The 11-time All-Star has shown no signs of age during his 14th NBA season as he leads the league in scoring at 28.6 ppg to go along with 7.5 rebounds and 5.6 assists over his first 20 games. He’s shooting a career-high 53.9% from the field and 38.9% from 3-point as the Nets lead the East standings with a record of 15-6. It’s the 15th career Player of the Month award for Durant and his first since Jan. 2017.
