From a performance standpoint, Steph Curry had one of the best weeks of his career. He led the Golden State Warriors to an undefeated 4-0 week, during which he averaged 33.9 points and 5.6 assists per game, while shooting 30-55 on three-pointers. It was highlighted by a 51-point performance on Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.
And so, very deservedly, Curry was awarded with the Western Conference Player of the Week honors.
Curry was joined by the East’s winner, Giannis Antetokounmpo. They join week one winners Kemba Walker and Nikola Jokic as the four players to win the award so far this year.
For Curry, it’s the 13th such time that he’s been named Player of the Week, which is pretty impressive. If he keeps playing at the pace he started the season at, he’ll accumulate a much higher number by the time the year is done.
Since the season began halfway through the month, the NBA doesn’t award a Player of the Month for October, otherwise Curry would likely win that, as well.
