Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week, the NBA announced Monday.
This is Curry’s second Player of the Week award this season and the 16th of his career. In four games last week, Curry averaged 43.8 points on 57.3% shooting, 9.0 3-pointers on 54.5% shooting from beyond the arc, 5.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 34.2 minutes per game. The Warriors went 3-1 in those games.
The award-winning week was crowned by a signature win over the Denver Nuggets in which Curry scored 53 points on 14-for-24 shooting, including 10 3-pointers, six rebounds and four assists. Curry’s recent scoring surge has led to his name being included in MVP conversations.
Curry, who is questionable for Monday’s game in Philadelphia, is averaging 31 points on 49.1% shooting (42.7% from 3-point range), 5.9 assists and 5.6 rebounds.
