Steph Curry's Crazy Week

Steph Curry became the first player in NBA history to be a unanimous MVP winner. He is also the third point guard to win the award twice, joining Steve Nash and Magic Johnson. Curry is also the first repeat winner since LeBron did it in 2011-12.

Curry led the Warriors to a 73-9 regular season record to best the ’96 Bulls record. He also broke his own three-pointers made record by 116 and finished with 402 made on the season. Curry also joined Nash and his coach Steve Kerr as the only players to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor, 45 percent from three and 90 percent from the line.

But that’s not all he did this week. Curry had been sidelined with a knee injury for two weeks before coming off the bench in Game 4 against the Blazers. Curry missed his first 10 three-point attempts before nailing his 11th, and he shimmied back down the court afterwards.

Curry probably didn’t anticipate getting a ton of minutes in his first game back, but that all changed when Shaun Livingston picked up two quick technical fouls and was booted from the game. Curry ended up playing 37 minutes including overtime.

Curry put up 23 points in regulation, but once again, he decided to add a little more history to an already historical season for him and the Warriors.

In overtime Curry scored 17 points. The Warriors in total scored 21, while the Blazers in total scored 14. Curry outscored the Blazers by three in overtime. The overtime period is only five minutes long compared to a 12 minute quarter.

The 17 points are the most in an overtime in NBA history. Curry averaged 3.4 points a minute in overtime, which equates to 40 points in a quarter.

Just another reason Curry deserved to win the MVP Award again.

The wild week for Curry continued on Wednesday when the Warriors faced off against the Blazers in Game 5 of the series.

Steph dropped 29 points and had 11 assists in the Warriors series clinching victory. Curry also nailed the three-point dagger that finished off the Blazers.

Now, Curry and Warriors are into the Western Conference Finals for the second straight year and are attempting to repeat as NBA Champions, which was last done by LeBron and the Heat in 2012-13.

If the Curry and Warriors can continue their hot shooting, a rematch with LeBron and the Cavs could be in store. And, with the way the Cavs are playing, that could be one of the best NBA Finals in history.
