LeBron James names Player of the Week

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was named today as the NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, November 16th through Sunday, November 22nd.

In four games during the week, James averaged an NBA-best 34.3 points on .583 shooting, 5.8 rebounds, 9.3 assists and 1.0 steal in 37.5 minutes per game. He was the only Eastern Conference player to score 30 or more points in each of his games last week and led the Cavs to a 3-1 record during their four games in five nights stretch. James wins the award for the first time this season and the 21st time in his career.

James posted a double-double with 31 points and 12 assists in a win over the Golden State Warriors on November 17th at Quicken Loans Arena. He scored 15 of his game-high 34 points in the third quarter at Washington on November 18th. In the second road game of the week, he finished with a season-high 40 points, including 22 points on 8-11 (.727) from the field in the first half, nine rebounds and seven assists on November 20th in a 105-95 win over the Pacers. In their final home game of the week versus Philadelphia, he tallied a game-high 32 points, seven rebounds and nine assists in a 97-91 victory.

The Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant was named the Western Conference Player of the Week. Other nominees for the Eastern Conference Player of the Week were Charlotte's Stephen Jackson, New York's Al Harrington and Orlando's Vince Carter.
