Steph Curry had a dynamic week, and not surprisingly, he was rewarded for it. After leading the Golden State Warriors to a 3-0 week - with all three wins coming by double digits, on the road - the superstar was awarded the Western Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season, and the 14th time in his career.

For the week, Curry averaged 30.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.0 steals per game, while shooting a blistering 57.6% from three-point range. He put his name firmly back in the MVP race, despite the fact that he’s only played 16 of the Warriors’ 27 games thus far.

With the award, Curry became the second person this season to win Player of the Week multiple times, joining two-time Eastern Conference Player of the Week Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The other players to have won the award this season are: Kemba Walker, Nikola Jokic, Victor Oladipo, Russell Westbrook, Pascal Siakam, C.J. McCollum, Nikola Vucevic, Anthony Davis, Tobias Harris, Kawhi Leonard, Paul Millsap, and Bradley Beal.

Something tells me it won’t be the last time Curry wins this award.
