Shocking, I know.

On Sunday night, Steph Curry torched the Portland Trail Blazers for a career high 62 points, and led the Golden State Warriors to their most impressive win of the short season.

And on Monday, he was awarded for it by being named the Western Conference’s Player of the Week.

I know, I know. I’m as shocked as you are that one of the best players in the world could put up a ridiculously efficient 62 points and then be named Player of the Week. Some things just don’t make sense!

The Warriors played three times in the week, going 2-1. Curry averaged 39.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists during that stretch, while shooting 52.9% from the field, 45.9% from distance, and 96.8% from the charity stripe. That is ... uhh ... good.

It’s the 15th time in his career that he’s been awarded Player of the Week, and the first since Dec. 10, 2018. According to a press release from the Warriors, that gives him three times as many as the next-closest Warrior: Tim Hardaway, who won the award five times.

It would seem that Steph Curry is good. I dunno, just a theory I’m testing.
