A Recap of Steph Curry’s Incredible 2021-2022 Season

The 2021-2022 NBA Season just wrapped up, and the Golden State Warriors take home the championship after an incredible playoff run

Obviously, the driving force of the team is soon to be Hall of Famer, Stephen Curry. This recent championship has stirred up conversations about this being Curry’s best season…at 34 Years old

Though this season is certainly not his best overall season, it is still an absolutely mind blowing year considering Steph’s age, and the odds against the Warriors.

Let’s look through what Curry accomplished this year

Steph Curry’s 2021-2022 Season

In the regular season, Curry averaged

  • 25.5 PPG
  • 5.2 RPG
  • 6.3 APG
  • 44,38,92 Splits
  • 60.1% True Shooting

In the playoffs, Curry averaged

  • 27.4
  • 5.2 RPG
  • 5.9 APG
  • 46,40,83 Splits
  • 60.6% True Shooting

In the Finals Curry averaged

  • 31.2 PPG
  • 6.0 RPG
  • 5.0 APG
  • 48,44,86 Splits
  • 62.6% True Shooting

Steph Curry had an “underwhelming regular season” for his standards, of course, still undeniably VERY elite and better than 97-98% of NBA players. But after coming off a season averaging 32 PPG on 65% true shooting and leading the league in scoring, 25.5 on 60.1% true shooting doesn’t seem too sweet.

But, make no mistake, Curry is still that same player we saw last season, and he displayed it in the playoffs. During the regular season, Curry went through a massive slump in the month of January only averaging

  • 22.3 PPG
  • 5.9 RPG
  • 7.3 APG
  • 38,33,89 Splits
  • 53.1% True Shooting

These numbers aren’t great for Curry, especially the shooting numbers, but if you look at every other month this season, his efficiency is still spectacular and he still looked like one of the best 3 players in the world.

October –

  • 28.7 PPG
  • 7.5 RPG
  • 6.5 APG
  • 42,39,97 Splits
  • 60.3% True Shooting

November –

  • 27.4 PPG
  • 4.9 RPG
  • 6.6 APG
  • 47,42,93 Splits
  • 63.8% True Shooting

December –

  • 27.6 PPG
  • 4.7 RPG
  • 4.7 APG
  • 40,37,90 Splits
  • 58.0% True Shooting

February –

  • 24.0 PPG
  • 4.2 RPG
  • 7.7 APG
  • 48,36,93 Splits
  • 63.6% True Shooting

March (Before Injury) –

  • 27.0 PPG
  • 5.6 RPG
  • 5.1 APG
  • 52,42,100 Splits
  • 68.2% True Shooting

Curry once again had a great scoring, and playmaking season due to his scoring gravity from all 3 levels, and advantage creation. Steph was also a positive on defense this entire season, taking a massive leap almost every year of his career on that end of the floor. In the playoffs, Curry continued his brilliance from March after coming back from an injury and was outstanding in every round. He displayed his great defense, shooting, finishing, and playmaking ability, and ultimately had 34,7,7 in game 6 of the NBA Finals to win his first Finals MVP award and one more NBA Championship.

What a year for Curry and the Warriors, don’t expect Steph to be stopping his dominance any time soon
