LeBron James Named NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was named today as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the second straight week for games played Monday, November 10th through Sunday, November 16th.

In three games during the week, James averaged an NBA-high 33.7 points on .600 shooting, 8.0 assists and 6.0 rebounds in 41.0 minutes per game. James has now won the award 15 times in his career: for the second time this season, three times during 2007-08, twice in 2006-07, five times in 2005-06 and on three occasions during the 2004-05 campaign.

On November 11th, James scored 41 points for the third time this season and tallied five rebounds, six assists and three steals versus Milwaukee. James became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1991 to reach the 40-point mark at least three times in his team’s first eight games of a season.

In the game against the Nuggets on November 13th, he finished with 22 points, eight rebounds, 11 assists and three steals. On November 15th, James scored a game-high 38 points, including 16 points on 6-10 shooting in the fourth quarter, and added five rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and two steals against the Jazz. The Cavs went 3-0 during the week and currently own the NBA’s longest winning streak at seven games.

The Denver Nuggets’ Chauncey Billups was named the Western Conference Player of the Week. Other nominees for the Eastern Conference Player of the Week were Boston’s Paul Pierce, Detroit’s Rasheed Wallace, Miami’s Dwyane Wade, New Jersey’s Devin Harris, New York’s Zach Randolph, and Orlando’s Dwight Howard.
