5.  Seth Curry

It is no secret that Seth Curry is a phenomenal shooter. He has vaulted into second in NBA history in career 3-point percentage with his performance this season, though. The change is more attempts and finding ways to get him open.

Curry played a career-high 29.0 minutes per game with the Mavericks in the 2016-2017 season. He attempted 4.6 threes a night that year. This season he is seeing just 24.5 minutes, but taking 5.1 3-pointers per game. That works out to 7.5 threes per-36 minutes which is one full attempt over his career average.

Also. Could Seth Curry go down as the greatest shooter ever?

Curry is also taking 3.8 3-pointers each game that are classified as open by NBA Stats. That means the defender is at least four feet away from him when he takes the shot. Curry sinks those threes over 49 percent of the time.

The 29-year-old is also cashing in when teams run him off the 3-point line too. He is shooting a career-high 56.0 percent on his twos this season. It has allowed Curry to hit 50.0 percent from the field.

More 3-pointers and getting Seth Curry open has allowed his percentages to tick up. That makes him one of the deadliest shooters in the NBA.
