The NBA has announced their players of the week in both conferences for games played from January 22-28.

In the Eastern Conference, small forward Khris Middleton of the Milwaukee Bucks received the honors. Two-time MVP point guard Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors was named the Western Conference Player of the Week. Winners from the week of January 15-21 were center Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference and guard Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference.

Here is how Middleton and Curry earned the honors for this past week.

Eastern Conference Player of the Week - Khris Middleton

The Bucks played in three games last week and came out victorious in all of them. In Milwaukee's three games, Middleton posted per game averages of 34.9 minutes, 25.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.7 steals. He shot a very impressive 30-of-47 (63.8 percent) from the field, 5-of-9 (55.6 percent) on threes, and 11-of-13 (84.6 percent) from the charity stripe.

Middleton started off the week with a flurry as he totaled 35 points last Monday (Jan. 22). He shot at least 57.1 percent from the field in last week's games. Milwaukee was a +39 with him on the floor this past week. This is the first time in Middleton's six-year career that he has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

As of January 28, he is averaging career-bests in scoring (20.4), rebounding (5.3), and assists (4.3).

Western Conference Player of the Week - Stephen Curry

The Warriors went 3-0 this past week, as Curry continued to do what he often does best which is put the ball in the hoop. That's far from all he did though as in last week's games, he finished with per game averages of 35.8 minutes, 35.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists, and 1.7 steals.

He shot lights out as he connected on 34-of-57 (59.6 percent) field goals, 21-of-37 (56.8 percent) three-pointers, and 17-of-19 (89.5 percent) free throws.

Curry excelled in what was an exciting duel with Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving on Saturday (Jan. 27). The All-Star starter connected on eight threes and finished with a season-high 49 points.

Altogether, the Warriors were a +30 in their last three outings with Curry on the court.

This is the 12th time in his career and second time this season that the ninth-year pro has been named Western Conference Player of the Week. Curry also received the weekly honors for games played between January 2-8.
