    Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has been named the first unanimous NBA Most Valuable Player, winning the award for a second successive season. Luis Gonzalez Jersey . Curry is the 11th player in league history to be voted MVP in consecutive seasons and the first guard to do so since Steve Nash in 2004-05 and 2005-06.Curry received 1,310 points from the 130 media voters from the US and Canada, and was followed in the vote by Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio, LeBron James of Cleveland and Oklahoma City team-mates Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Curry is the first two-time winner in franchise history, and Wilt Chamberlain (1959-60) is the only other Warriors winner. After guiding Golden State to its first championship in 40 years, Currys side took that success even further to finish with 73 regular-season wins to top the mark set by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls team that went 72-10.In a stunning overtime performance on Monday night, Curry showed exactly how he can take over a game in a matter of seconds. He returned from a sprained right knee to score 40 points, and 17 more in overtime, in a 132-125 win at Portland to put his team up 3-1 in the Western Conference semi-finals.I figured that hed find his stroke and make a few shots, but I mean that was, that was crazy, said Golden state Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who was voted NBA Coach of the Year last month. Stephen Curry averaged an NBA-best 30.1 points per game The reason Steph [Curry] is as good as he is because he can score from anywhere. If you take away the three he can penetrate and hit the floaters or get to the rim.Curry, now one of the most recognisable athletes worldwide, will be presented with his MVP trophy on Tuesday at Oracle Arena before trying to close out the series against the Portland Trail Blazers at home on Wednesday night.He made a record 402 three-pointers after no player had previously hit 300 in a season. He averaged an NBA-best 30.1 points per game to go with 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds. He also led the NBA with 2.1 steals a game while shooting 50.4 percent from the field, 45.4 percent from 3-point range and 90.8 percent from the foul line. Taijuan Walker Jersey . Clarkson had been dealing with an elbow injury in early January and will be out of action for at least one week. He has three goals and five assists through 36 games with the Leafs this season. Patrick Corbin Jersey . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. .C. at the helm of the top team in the Eastern Conference. His tenure as the GM in Vancouver was all too brief. Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Washington Capitals keep picking up victories and points. The problem: So is just about everyone else in the brutal Metropolitan Division.Washington earned its sixth straight win by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Friday night after T.J. Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored in the shootout.Four of the divisions top five teams -- including Washington -- entered Friday night on winning streaks of five or more games.I think more important than the six games, we want the point, Oshie said. We can see the standings -- theyre posted up in the room -- but were working on our game right now. We had a tough start, and were building our identity each night. I think the points are following that because were playing some good hockey, so we want to continue that and the points, I think, will follow.Oshie also scored the tying goal on a deflection with 6:04 left, Alex Ovechkin scored his team-leading 14th goal and Justin Williams also scored for the Capitals, who improved to 1-2 in shootouts this season and earned points for the seventh consecutive game.We seem to have won six straight just to keep pace with the division, Williams said. It is what it is, and its good competitiveness, and its something that, as athletes, we enjoy.Teuvo Teravainen had a goal and an assist, Jeff Skinner and Justin Faulk scored and rookie Sebastian Aho had two assists, but the Hurricanes had their seven-game home winning streak snapped.I thought both teams had a lot of good chances, Carolina coach Bill Peters said. It wasnt for a lack of chances for us. ... I liked the effort, I really did.Oshie beat Cam Ward high on Washingtons first attempt in the shootout, and after Jaccob Slavin hit the post with a backhand to start the second roound, Kuznetsov put a backhand high past Ward to end it. Jake Lamb Jersey. Ward made 23 saves for the Hurricanes, who fell to 1-4 in shootouts this season.Philipp Grubauer stopped 27 shots for Washington, which trailed for most of the third period after Teravainen put Carolina up just 40 seconds in by redirecting in Ahos shot.Oshie tied it when he deflected a blast by Dmitry Orlov past Ward late in the period.Orlov made a great, great shot there -- you tip them and hope they get a good bounce, Oshie said. And I got a fortunate one.Ovechkin pulled Washington even at 1 when he beat Ward high from the circle on a rush. The Hurricanes had killed 17 of their previous 18 penalties on home ice before that goal.After Williams put the Capitals up 2-1, Faulk tied it 2:18 later when he took a slick pass from Aho on a 2-on-1 and beat Grubauer.That came after Skinner got his third goal this week and fourth in four home games when he slipped a loose puck past Grubauer for a 1-0 lead 5:46 in.Game notes Washington D Matt Niskanen had two assists. ... The Capitals have scored a power-play goal in six of their last seven games. ... Kuznetsov set up Williams goal, giving him assists in six straight games. ... Hurricanes C Jordan Staal rang the post midway through the third period. ... Carolinas home winning streak started with a 5-1 win over Washington on Nov. 12. The Capitals arent scheduled to return to Raleigh this season.UP NEXTCapitals: Washington returns home to play Atlantic Division leader Montreal on Saturday night.Hurricanes: They play host to Buffalo on Saturday night in the third game of a four-game homestand. Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Youth NFL Jerseys China White NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Camo China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2020 NFL Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys 2018 Disocunt Football Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
