Warriors superstar Steph Curry has led Golden State to a hot 5-1 start to the season, and the NBA’s defending scoring champion is leading the league in points per game once again as we head into November.

Curry earned a Western Conference Player of the Week honor for the first week of the season, the 17th time in his career he’s received the accolade. Curry started the year with a triple-double in a win over the Lakers on opening night, and followed up that performance with consecutive double-doubles.

Here’s where Steph Curry ranks in major statistical categories early in the season:

Points per game: 28.7 (1st in the NBA)

Curry is the defending NBA scoring champion, though he’s currently below his previous season average of 32 points per game. Curry was held to below-average nights in two games against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but in games against other teams, he’s scoring at a clip of 32.2 points per game.

Rebounds per game: 7.5 (47th in the NBA)

Curry opened the season with a triple-double, then had another 10-rebound night in the second game of the season. Curry’s best-ever rebounding season came last year, when he averaged 5.5 boards.

Assists per game: 6.5 (14th in the NBA)

This is still below his career-high average of 8.5 set in the 2013-14 season, Curry’s first as an All-Star, but it matches his overall career average of 6.5 assists per game.

3-pointers made: 31 (1st in the NBA)

Curry, with 31 made threes in six games, leads CJ McCollum (29), LaMelo Ball (26), and the trio of Cole Anthony, Evan Fournier and Buddy Hield (25).

3-point percentage: .392 (59th in the NBA)

Curry’s a career 43 percent shooter from long range, so he’s slightly underperforming here. Kemba Walker leads the NBA with a 3-point percentage of .568, ahead of Eric Gordon (.556) and Seth Curry (.541).

Free-throw percentage: .971 (6th in the NBA)

Steph is 33-of-34 from the line this year, and has the highest free-throw percentage of any player to take more than 30 shots from the stripe this season. The five players ahead of Curry on this list have yet to miss from the line. Curry’s best mark for a season is 93.4 percent, set in his sophomore year.

Steals per game: 1.5 (32nd in the NBA)

This is slightly below his career average of 1.7 steals per game, but its higher than his season average in each of the last three years.

Turnovers: 24 (14th in the NBA)

Steph has never averaged four turnovers per game in a season (his current mark right now), and he’ll likely settle somewhere closer to his career mark of 3.1 as the season progresses.

Win shares: 1.0 (16th in the NBA)

You would expect Curry to land higher on this list given the start he’s had, but he’s well behind win share leaders Jimmy Butler (1.6) and Nikola Jokic (1.5). Draymond Green is the next closest Warrior on the list at 0.7, and Damion Lee (0.5), Kevon Looney (0.5) and Andrew Wiggins (0.5) all made the top 100.

Player efficiency rating: 25.0 (12th in the NBA)

Only three players have a PER above 30: Jokic at 33.7, Giannis Antetokounmpo at 31.7, and Butler at 30.3. Curry’s career-high PER is 31.5, set during the 2015-16 season.
