The Golden State Warrior guard and ace player Stephen Curry and New York Knicks forward Julius Randle were hailed as the Kia NBA Western and Eastern Conference Player of the Month for April.
With Curry’s average score of 37.3 points on 46.6 shooting from deep, 90.8 from the free-throw line, and 51.8% shooting from the field, it seemed easier for him to go ahead on top as one of the finest and most skilled players this season. The two-time MVP gained the most threes of 96 out of 206 3-pointers and he is the first player in the NBA history to get an average beyond 35 points.
Meanwhile, the New York Knicks took pride in Julius Randle as he was named as the NBA Player of the month. He was able to carry an average of 27.1 points, with 6.3 assists, and 9.0 rebounds, making it one of New York Knicks best Eastern Conference records. This is also Randle’s first “Player of the Month” award, and the first Knicks player who was hailed POTM since January 2014 for Carmelo Anthony.
Other nominees from the West include Devin Booker, Luka Doncic, Paul George, Chris Paul, and Nikola Jokic, while from the East are Bradley Beal, Russell Westbrook, Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum, Clint Capela, and Darius Garland.
As May heated up with everyone’s incredible and competitive performance across the court, basketball fans can expect a lot of action-packed games from the Eastern and Western Conference teams.
