Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry is lighting it up since returning from an illness in mid-November. Taking a look at his impressive play.

Dallas Mavericks fans have been pleasantly surprised by plenty this season. Luka Doncic breaking into the MVP conservation and leading the team into prime playoff position has been breathtaking. Having 23 wins after 37 games is a reason for supporters to dream of a deep run.

The stellar play from Doncic has allowed others doing impressive things to fly under the radar. Few are noticing that Dorian Finney-Smith is shooting 39.6 percent from 3-point range this season. Tim Hardaway Jr. has hit 43.4 percent on his threes since moving into the starting lineup. The Mavs are featuring impressive play up and down the lineup.

Add Seth Curry to the list of players producing outstanding numbers. Let us take a look at what the 29-year-old is doing this season.

Curry’ shooting

Seth Curry got off to a bit of a slow start this season. Adjusting to new teammates and finding his footing in the rotation likely played a role in the struggles.

His numbers have normalized after his recent strong stretch since returning after missing two games with an illness. Over the last 22, Curry is averaging 11.4 points on 46.4 percent shooting from the field and 40.6 percent on his threes.

For the season, Curry is showing his offensive strengths. He is hitting 43.1 percent on his catch and shoot 3-pointers according to NBA Stats. The 29-year-old has adapted to being run off the shot too. Curry nails 48.2 percent on his pull-up twos. His ability to score off the dribble has opened up the Mavericks offense and given the team another capable threat with the ball in his hands.

Curry has taken 110 open 3-pointers this season. He has hit 43.6 percent of those shots. Luka Doncic continues drawing defenders which should only create more open looks for Curry. Expect his percentages to rise as the season progresses. The Mavericks have a historically great offense with Doncic at the helm. Curry’s floor spacing is an important part of the equation.
