The Warriors PG is getting back on track of late.

Things were quiet for the Golden State Warriors during a recent four-game stretch, at least by their standards. The Warriors went 2-2 in the last four contests entering Sunday’s game, which is unusual for a team that sits near the top of the West at 33-13. However, this recent stretch has been somewhat of a boon for Stephen Curry, Golden State’s star point guard and the current MVP favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Stephen Curry MVP Odds: +180

In the last three contests he played entering Sunday’s game, Curry averaged 26.3 points and 9.3 assists per game while posting 40.7/37.8/89.5 shooting splits. In the previous 11 games before that stretch, Curry was averaging 24.5 points and 5.7 assists while posting 39.7/34.1/88.3 splits. The Warriors point guard is starting to get his rhythm back, and that’s good news for Golden State ahead of the All-Star break as it tries to keep pace with Phoenix at the top of the West.
