It's not difficult to see how Stephen Curry led the Golden State Warriors to the second highest offensive efficiency in the NBA, trailing only the Los Angeles Clippers. With the ball in his hands, Curry made a strong case to become the league's 2015 NBA MVP. But that's not all.

Curry also contributed on the defensive side of the ball. He leads the league with 158 steals—a big part of why Golden State also boasts the top-ranked defensive efficiency. With Curry's contribution on offense, the Warriors are a great team, but it's his defensive contribution that propelled Golden State to the top of the highly competitive Western Conference.
