Stephen Curry is averaging 35.3 points per game and shooting 53-for-101 from beyond the arc over his past eight contests. After a 40-point performance on Thursday, Curry was asked if he'd like to be in the conversation for MVP this season.
"The game speaks for itself," said Curry. "Those two [MVP] years is the exact same kind of conversation. Obviously, that's an amazing accomplishment, and being in that conversation with all that we've been through these last two years, that means something. Those narratives make themselves as you go throughout the season, and my job is obviously just be at the level that I expect to be, and usually that means you're at the top at the end of the season.
"I really try not to get distracted by that because it kind of taints the moment. And really right now, if I'm doing my job, then I'll be there at the end of the season, and that will take care of itself."
