Through 45 games this season, Steph Curry's PER (player efficiency rating) is 33.0.
Russell Westbrook is second at 28.7.
Wilt Chamberlain holds the all-time single-season record at 31.82 in 1962-63.
Curry is averaging a league-high 30.3 points per game, to go along with 6.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 2.3 steals per contest.
He's on pace to make 392 3-pointers.
But what about his fourth quarter statistics specifically?
As ESPN's Tom Haberstroh pointed out on Wednesday, those numbers are even more impressive:
- Curry's PER in the final period is 46.0. Anthony Davis is second at 35.8.
- Curry is making 61 percent of his 3-point attempts
- Curry is 12th in the league in scoring, despite the fact that he's played the 211th most minutes (he has sat out 14 fourth quarters, and he also missed two games)
- Curry has played 100 fewer minutes than Russell Westbrook (290 to 190), yet has scored only one fewer point (234 to 233)
