Seth Curry made 13-of-15 from the field for a career-high 37 points with two rebounds, two assists and eight 3-pointers in 36 minutes during a 126-118 loss to the Heat on Friday. That's a unheard of 113.3 eFG% for the highest eFG% in a game among players with 15+ FGA in a game in NBA history. Curry's February has been ridiculously efficient from almost start to finish, averaging 18.5 points, 4.0 boards, 2.8 dimes, 0.9 steals and 3.9 treys on a 56/59/82 shooting line for a 73.1 TS%.
I'm also gonna go ahead and big up someone else's guy - a player that doesn't really need anyone to hype him up - Giannis Antetokounmpo.
His rebounding numbers are overlooked IMO. They're actually insane.
Per100 possessions, Giannis is pulling down 20.4 rebounds. Good for 5th in the league, behind Drummond, Whiteside, DeAndre, and Kanter. This is the guy who is scoring the 3rd most points per game, and the most per36, and the most per100 possessions.
That number would be 5th (2019), 4th (2018), 5th (2017), 3rd (2016), 3rd (2015), 2nd (2014), 2nd (2013), 2nd (2012), 2nd (2011), 1st (2010), 1st, (2009), 1st (2008), 1st (2007), 1st (2006), 2nd (2005), 1st (2004), 2nd (2003), 2nd (2002), 2nd (2001), and 1st (2000).
Giannis is competing for rebounding with the likes of Andre Drummond. Giannis is putting up prime fat K-Love rebounding numbers. He's averaging nearly 14 a game in only 30.9 minutes!
The man is truly otherwordly. He's putting up prime Shaq numbers. Better than prime Shaq numbers. Shaq's best stats, per100, playoffs or otherwise, were probably during the Lakers 2nd Title Run, where they went 15-1, and Shaq averaged 37.6 points ,19.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 2.9 blocks, 0.5 steals, 4.4 turnovers on 55% shooting, per100.
This season, Giannis per100 is averaging 44.3 points, 20.4 rebounds, 8.6 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.6 blocks, 5.5 turnovers on 55% shooting.
That's more points, rebounds, assists, with very similar stocks and turnovers than Prime fucking Shaq. And oh yeah, the same FG% while Giannis can hit the three at nearly 32%.
Not my guy, but Jayson Tatum has been on an absolute tear on both ends. His February stats for 12 games was 30.7 PPG on 49% FG, 48%(!) from 3PT on 9 attempts a game, and 77% FT, with 7.9 RPG, 3.2 APG, and 1.2 SPG and 1.3 BPG. His advanced stats have also exploded in February— 117 ORTG, 108 DRTG, 63% TS, and 59% EFG.
He’s definitely taken the mantle from Kemba, Hayward, and Brown as the #1 option for the Celtics, and is trending towards an outside shot at an All NBA selection.
Malik "Shake" Milton has also shot a completely sustainable 64.3% from 3 on 5.3 attempts in the time frame. Been a great revelation for the Sixers over the past 1.5 months, he started getting consistent minutes on January 22nd when Richardson hurt his hamstring vs Toronto and has really stepped it up when the Sixers needed him to.
Ian Noble: Thanks Hana At the moment I'm doing nothing all day except vegetate in front of my laptop though, so I'm happy to update transactions when I can, but I am finding I'm making some simple mistakes so pls send me a PM if you guys spot these. Cheers
