Curry enters Sunday as the NBA’s leading scorer, averaging 31.8 points per game. Beal is averaging 31.4.
Beal’s Wizards tip-off first at 10 a.m. PT while Curry takes the court at 12:30 p.m. PT. Both players are looking to secure the No. 8 seed for their team in their respective conference.
Here’s what Beal would need to do to pass Curry.
Steph’s 31.8 points per game is a new career high. It’s more than his 30.1 when he was named unanimous NBA MVP or his 23.8 points per game when he won his first MVP.
