Stephen Curry named Kia NBA Player of the Month for second time this season

After the month he had, was there any doubt?

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Stephen Curry is on fire. Even more on fire than normal, which says quite a lot. He lead the Warriors to a 9-1 record (including going 7-1 on the road), posting averages of 36.7 points, 7.3 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 1.90 steals while hitting 54.9 percent from the field and 53.6 percent from three-point range.

No other Warrior has ever won two POM awards in the same year. He just keeps flying higher and higher. The month, which was capped by his insane 37 foot game winner in Oklahoma City, was perhaps Curry's most inspired basketball to date.

And how's this for a heck of a list?

Not only did Curry break the NBA record for consecutive games with a three pointer, but he also eclipsed his own record for most threes in a season.

Quick reminder: There are 23 games left until the playoffs.

Is there anyone out there who can challenge Curry for the MVP award? Does anyone spring to mind?

On a team full of rising stars, Stephen Curry has firmly set himself apart. Not just on this team, but league wide. What more can he show us? What further magic is up his sleeve?
