Dallas Mavericks: 5 positives from this season so far
5. Seth Curry
Seth Curry got off to a bit of a slow start this season. He missed time during training camp and was adjusting to new teammates after his year in Portland. 13 games in, Curry was averaging just 7.9 points per game while shooting 43.0 percent from the field and 36.0 percent on his 3-pointers. He then missed two games because of an illness.
After returning, Curry found his stride. Over the next 46 games, he is shooting 47.2 percent on his threes and averaging 13.9 points per game.
For the entire season, Curry is second in the NBA in 3-point percentage trailing only George Hill of the Milwaukee Bucks. He also scores 12.6 points per game just under his career-high despite averaging 4.5 fewer minutes per game.
Seth Curry and his floor spacing have been a massive positive for the Dallas Mavericks. He constantly put defenses in a bind. They have to choose between helping on an attacking Luka Doncic or staying home on Curry beyond the arc. It likely does not end well for them either way.
Curry continued shooting better all season long. Since the All-Star break, he has hit 59.2 percent from the field and 53.7 percent from downtown. It will be interesting to see how hot Curry is when the games return this season.
