Warriors' Stephen Curry Named Western Conference Player of the Month


Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was named the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Month for April, the league announced.

Curry is the first Warrior to have that honor in 23 years, when Chris Mullin did it in November of 1990.

He averaged 25.4 points and 8.1 assist in April, shooting a lights-out 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Earlier this week, he broke Ray Allen’s record for most 3-pointers in a season, finishing with 272 baskets from beyond the arc.

Curry has had a great year overall, tied for seventh in the league in scoring with 22.9 points. He is obviously one of the main reasons why the Warriors are headed to the playoffs.
