Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has been named the NBA Western Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, Nov. 30, through Sunday, Dec. 6, the NBA announced on Monday.

Last week, Curry averaged a league-leading 34.5 points (60.8 FG% and 60.5 3PT%) and 6.5 three-pointers, to go along with 4.8 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 34.5 minutes per game (138 points in 138 minutes). Curry also became the first Warriors since Antawn Jamison in 2000 to post back-to-back 40-point games. Golden State went 4-0, extending their record-setting start to the season to 22-0.

This is Curry's third Player of the Week honor in the first six weeks of the 2015-16 season.

With the award, Curry joins Klay Thompson as the only Warriors to earn the honor three times in a single season -- a record Curry will almost surely break in the coming weeks. In addition, Curry ties Tim Hardaway's record of five weekly awards overall, which is another record Curry should easily surpass.

Reggie Jackson of the Detroit Pistons was named Player of the Week for the Eastern Conference.
