Curry, Bridges earn POTW awards

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry and Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges were named as the NBA’s Players of the Week to start off the 2021-22 season. Both players have made a lot of noise in Week 1 and helped their teams get a great start to the run.

Both Curry and Bridges were on fire to start the season. They were relentless in their games and made a lot of impact. Both the Warriors and the Hornets have done well to start with a bang and came up with impressive wins down the stretch.

The Player of the Week award is given to the best player who made a huge impact to help their teams claim a huge run in the given week. This award has been going on for years and it gives credit to the players who have played well for their team and gave their best.

Curry was the big force that the Warriors needed to go all the way for a 3-0 start in Week 1. He started off the season with a triple-double of 21 points, 10 boards, and 10 dimes to lift his team in a win against the Los Angeles Lakers.

He took his game to the next level with a 45-point and 10-board game after two days to beat the LA Clippers and closed the week in a win against the Sacramento Kings with 27 points, seven boards and 10 dimes.

The Hornets had the same 3-0 start thanks to Bridges. He showed his all-around play and had 13 points, eight boards, four dimes and three steals against the Indiana Pacers. The forward kept his scoring punch and dropped 30 points and seven boards versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. He wrapped up his run in the week with 32 points, nine boards, two dimes and two steals to beat the Brooklyn Nets.

Both players are in good form as well, so this should give the Warriors and the Hornets a great chance to win in their next set of games in Week 2 if Curry and Bridges can keep their form. This is an opportunity that the players should not waste because this might be the big break they want to have in the 2021-22 season.
