No surprise: Steph wins West Player of Week for absurd stretch


No surprise here: Steph Curry is your Western Conference Player of the Week.

The Warriors star averaged an incredible 43.8 points per game in Golden State's four games, which included three wins, passing Wilt Chamberlain to become the Warriors' all-time leading scorer, and a countless number of absurd stats.

It is the second time Curry won the award this season and the 16th time he has won it in his career, extending his franchise record. Tim Hardaway has the second-most Warriors player of week awards, with five.

From NBA's press release:

Curry helped lead the Warriors to a 3-1 week, beginning with a 53-point effort versus the Denver Nuggets on April 12 in which he surpassed Wilt Chamberlain (17,783 career points) as the franchise’s all-time leading scorer. At Oklahoma City on April 14, he connected on season-high tying 11 three-point field goals, becoming the first player in NBA history to hit at least 10 threes in back-to-back games on multiple occasions. During the week, he averaged an NBA best 43.8 points on 57.3% shooting from the field, 54.5% from beyond the arc and 90.6% from the free throw line, to go along with 5.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 34.2 minutes per game.
