Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and Demar Derozan of the Toronto Raptors respectively earned NBA player of the week honors. Stephen Curry has averaged 36 points a game since coming back from an ankle injury on December 30. He has hit 28 three's over his last four games. Also, this marks another Player of the Week nod for DeMar DeRozan, which is his eighth as a Raptor (a new franchise record). How's this for consistency: he's won the award once in each of the NBA's last 7 full months, dating back to the start of 2016-17. His game has developed and grown and many can't forget him dropping 52 points against the Milwaukee Bucks on January 1.

This shows how DeMar deserves to be voted into the all-star game this season.

Making a name for themselves

Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are the best backcourt in the East, and second in the NBA behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. It is great for the Toronto Raptors players to be get the recognition they deserve. It is evident that both Curry and DeRozan are the types of players that are set out to accomplish a lot. Stephen Curry has opened up about being very interested in being part of the new ownership of the Carolina Panthers and has continued to look into ways to make that happen. Stephen Curry is the type of player that thrives off of winning and it has been that way since the beginning of the season.

DeRozan and Curry

Both DeMar And Curry play in rhythm. They continue to shoot and play aggressively and that's all it takes. We all know that Curry is the type of player that is an ace at shooting threes. DeMar hasn't been but this has changed and has become a part of his game. These qualities have allowed both of them to be named Eastern and Western conference players of the week.

If DeRozan and Curry were chefs they would be cooking up a hell of a storm in the kitchen. If Stephen Curry stays healthy the rest of the way, he could win his 3rd MVP.

I mean, why shouldn't he since he has the most games with 40 points in less than 30 minutes in NBA history. This is inevitably a grand statistic to his name.

As for DeRozan, he is averaging 43.5 points per game in 2018. It is without question that the man gets buckets. Jae Crowder, Eric Bledsoe, Myles Turner, and Khris Middleton are players that were ranked higher than DeRozan, and well, it is pretty comical. Both DeMar and Curry should be very proud of themselves. DeRozan attaining his eighth NBA player of the week in his career puts him ahead of both Carter and Bosh for the franchise record.
