The Golden State Warriors’ wunderkind, Stephen Curry, was just named Western Conference Player of the Week. This comes on the heels of being named January’s Co-Western Conference Players of the Month, with teammate Kevin Durant.

The Warriors went 2-1 for the week in terms of wins and losses, but Curry’s stats were off the charts. He tallied a 29-point and 11-assist double-double against the Los Angeles Clippers, and in wins against the Charlotte Hornets and Sacramento Kings he totaled double-digit points and near double-digit assists.

These numbers are impressive by any standard and, yes, it appears Curry is back. But there is one persistent question that just won’t die:

  • Q: Can Curry sustain this level of play?
  • A: Who cares? He’s human and bound to have an off night here or there. Hell, he might fall into another slump or miss a little time with the unmentionable “I” word. The beauty of the Golden State squad, however, is that there are guys who are more than capable of picking up the slack, if needed. One of them is the aforementioned Co-Western Conference Players of the Month winner, Durant, and the other is Curry’s fellow Splash Brother, Klay Thompson.

So, for now, sit back and enjoy Curry’s spectacular play and revel in the accolades. This guy is, indeed, a truly spicy Curry.
