Despite some incredible stat lines, neither Kevin Durant nor Devin Booker won Western Conference Player of the Week.

In a week where the Suns (7-6) went 3-0, both Durant and Booker propelled them to every single win.

Durant had a remarkable run this week, averaging 36.0 points, 8.3 assists, 7.7 rebounds while shooting 62.5% from the floor, 63.2% from deep and 100% from the free throw line.

These were the first three games Booker had played since returning from a calf injury. He posted averages of 27.0 points and 9.3 assists while shooting 46.6% from the floor and 35.3% from deep.

Instead De’Aaron Fox won it, even though he had worse stats in every category compared to KD. He did lead the Kings to a 4-0 record, but averaged 32.3 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds on 52.3% shooting and 44.4% on threes.

This is the second time this year KD has been nominated for the weekly award and not won, but this one doesn’t make much sense at all as  to why he didn’t win.

Devin Booker and KD propel Suns to record-breaking success in the regular season
