Coming off a breakout season averaging a career best 22.9 points and 6.9 assists per game guard Stephen Curry is entering this year’s postseason hotter than a pact sauna. Talk about momentum as the youngster just broke the single season record for most three pointers made in a season. Curry finished the season with 272 from beyond the arc (269 was Ray Allen’s old record). The Warriors will be playing the tough, athletic Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs. Curry will be matched up against Ty Lawson who is currently not 100% healthy which should allow himself to shine brighter than a shooting star.
