Seth Curry may be the best shooter in the NBA right now. He flies under the radar, but Curry sank 45.3 percent from downtown which raised his career average to 44.3. That is the second-highest 3-point percentage in NBA history behind only former Bulls guard and current Warriors coach Steve Kerr. Curry was also second in 3-point percentage this season among qualified shooters.

There is more to his game than just hitting threes, though. He had an impressive dribble drive game that allowed him to get to the rim and finish with ease when opponents forced him off the line. Curry hit 48 of his 71 attempts from within five feet this season or 67.6 percent per NBA Stats.

That allowed him to 50.0 percent from the field on the season. It also gave Curry an outstanding 62.8 effective field goal percentage which was eighth-best in the NBA. He was one of four guards to finish inside the top 25 in that category.

The advanced metrics were strong too. Curry produced 3.4 offensive win shares this season which ranked 34th in the NBA. He also had an offensive box score plus-minus of 2.0 that placed him 47th. ESPN’s offensive real plus-minus ranked him 64th.

Offensive grade: A+

Few expected Seth Curry to be this good. He worked his way into additional minutes as the season went on because he was playing so well. Curry becoming an unexpected top 50 player on this end of the floor earned him an A-plus grade.
