That Korver, he's so hot right now.

Looks like that wrist is healing nicely, and just in time.  In the 2007-08 season, the Jazz went 38-12 after acquiring Kyle Korver.

It's nice to have that Korver back.

Here are his stats over the last couple of months:

February and March have been good to KK.  March, for whatever reason, is Korver's favorite month.  In 2007-08 he averaged 11 PPG on 47% three-point shooting and 53% overall to go along with 5 rebounds a game.

This year it's right there again.  He's nailing 48% of his threes and 54% overall.

His PER 36 numbers since the beginning of February are 12.3 PPG, 2.7 assists, and 6 rebounds per game.  That comes after having a lifetime PER36 of 4.3 boards a game.

He's been hotter in March.  The rebounds are down a bit to 5 a game PER36.  But is PPG PER36 is up to 14.4.

The recent three-game slide notwithstanding, Korver has been a huge part of the team's recent success.

Let's hope he stays hot for the rest of the season and keeps those wrists injury free.
