Kyrie Irving named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Cavs guard Kyrie Irving has been named Player of the Week for the Eastern Conference, Lamarcus Aldridge for the West.

Kyrie Irving has been named the Player of the Week in the Eastern Conference thanks to his play which has been constantly improving throughout the season.

Irving averaged 29 points, 1.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 2.3 steals leading the Cavs to a 2-1 record in games against the Heat, Magic, and Knicks. He shot 51% from the field and 41% from the three point line. In December, Irving has returned to numbers we're more accustomed to: 21.7 points on 44% shooting from the field, 37% from three, and 83% from the free throw line.

LaMarcus Aldridge, whom the Cavs will host on Tuesday when they face the Portland Trailblazers, was named the Western Conference Player of the Week. He averaged 25.5 points, 14.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.5 blocks in victories over Detroit, Philadelphia, Houston, and Utah.
