DeRozan, Curry Named Players of the Month

DeRozan, Curry Named Kia NBA Players of the Month for January

After a dominating first month of 2018, DeMar DeRozan, along with Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, was named the Kia NBA Player of the Month for January.

Once again, the Toronto Raptors put together an impressive month with a 10-5 record, and now sit just two games back of the first place Boston Celtics. Not surprisingly, DeRozan led the Raptors charge, ranked second in the conference in scoring at 25.3-points per game, adding 5.9-assist over the past month. The Kid from Compton scored at least 30-points in four of the team’s 15 January games, which included a franchise-record 52-points in an overtime shootout with the Milwaukee Bucks to start the new year. The 5.9-assists is also his highest assist average for any month in his entire nine-year NBA career.

Meanwhile, over in the Western Conference, Stephen Curry led a 10-2 Warriors team while leading the league with 29.5-points for the month, adding 6.7-assists and 5.1-rebounds to his January stat line. The game’s best shooter could barely miss a shot during the month, shooting¬†51.4% from the field and an outrageous, 46.3% from long range.

As the calendar turned, it was DeRozan and Curry who set the gold standard for the month of January.
