Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant and Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry are the NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, specifically in Week 4 (Nov. 8 – Nov. 14), respectively.
In the given span, Curry registered an average of 34.8 points, 7.8 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 2.25 steals per game while leading the Dubs to a 3-1 record and the no. 1 seed in the West (11-2). Winning the award for the second time this season since Week 1, this is, meanwhile, Curry’s 18th weekly recognition throughout his career — the most in Golden State history.
On the other hand, Durant led the Nets to a 3-1 record and 2nd spot in the East (10-4), while tallying 32.3 markers, 7.8 boards, and an astounding 62 percent shooting from the area.
The two former teammates and faces of the Warriors dynasty in the last decade are poised for a regular season duel on Tuesday inside the Barclays Center.
