Stephen Curry has capped off an exciting second week of NBA action by winning the Western Conference Player of the Week award. The human torch ignited the Warriors' offense by scoring at least 28 points in every game last week, including the only 30 point/10 rebound performance by a guard this season in a gritty road win in Houston on Nov. 8th.

The Splash Brothers are quickly emerging as one of the premier backcourts in all of the NBA, which can only make one think: Is it too early to dream of a Steph vs. Klay showdown in the final round of the three-point contest? I think not.

The award marks the first time in franchise history that two different Warriors have won the award in consecutive weeks. Baron Davis won back-to-back Player of the Week honors in April of 2005, a month after being traded to the Dubs. It is also Curry's first Player of the Week award to go along with his two Player of the Month awards.

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Williams and the Nets will take on the Dubs this Thursday at the Roaracle in a can't-miss matchup of top NBA point guards (I've heard the teams aren't too bad either).
