So in the first full week since all-star break, the NBA picked up right where it left off and did not disappoint as there were some unbelievable performances this week.
I like to shine light on players who aren’t getting a huge deal of recognition, but in some cases, you can’t help but give praise. So our first winner this week is reigning MVP Stephen Curry! There are very few players who have ever been on this level for as long as he has. The Heat, Magic, and Thunder all played well enough that they should have beat GSW with little trouble, but they could not contain Curry. He had over 40 point in each game and ties the NBA record for 3’s in a game last night, while breaking his own record for 3’s in a season.
Our second winner this week is another big name in Kyle Lowry. Lowry did not disappoint this week. He had a triple double against New York and then had 43 points including the game-winner against Cleveland on Friday that continued Toronto’s longest home winning streak since 1999. He will have to continue to play at this level if Toronto wants to finally get past the first round for the first time since 2001.
Our last winner for this week is probably ROY winner Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns had two HUGE double-doubles this week that helped the T’wolves win 2/3, including a big win in New Orleans last night. This young man is proving why he is the future of a Minnesota franchise that has not seen the postseason since 2004.
