Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson.

The younger of the Golden State Warriors’ two Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson, won NBA Player of the Week honors while continuing to build upon an absolutely torrid month of March.

As the Dubs flirt with the NBA’s best record — they need to go 7-2 over their final nine contests to finish 73-9 and overthrow the 72-win Chicago Bulls — Thompson has caught fire. He’s shooting a ridiculous 49.7 percent from three-point territory in March, which is his best shooting month from deep in his career when playing more than three games.

His week was highlighted by back-to-back 40-point performances — the first time in Thompson’s career that he’s exploded for 40 or more in consecutive outings.

Those impressive performances were propped up by volume sharpshooting from distance. In Thompson’s four games last week (all Warriors wins), the Washington State product went 28-of-45 from beyond the arc (62.2 percent).

Thompson was virtually automatic from above the break, keying Golden State’s undefeated week with elite scoring. He raised his total of made threes to 253 on the season.

Thompson now needs just 17 more to overtake Ray Allen for fourth-most ever in a single season. His teammate and fellow Splash Brother, Stephen Curry, of course, holds the top three spots all time.

Curry has once again established himself as the MVP favorite, but his backcourt wingman is cobbling together a phenomenal season in his own right.

Player of the Week honors recognized Thompson’s dominant week, but he’s been remarkably impressive for all of March (and this season as a whole).

Curry is swiftly putting himself in the conversation as the best NBA shooter ever. But there’s clout to the argument that his teammate may not be far behind in the scope of that debate.
