James Named Eastern Conference Player Of The Week
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It’s begging to become standard for LeBron James this season, but he was once again selected as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the week ending November 18.
James tore through opponents last week helping the Heat to a 3-1 record. James averaged 29 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7 assists, 1.25 blocks, and 1 steal per game while shooting 49 percent from the field and 40 percent from behind the three-point line.
During the past week, James posted two double-doubles and led the team in minutes in all four games. LeBron has scored in double-digits in 430 consecutive games in his career and has scored in double-digits in 152 straight games as a member of the Miami Heat, which is a franchise record.
The award is the 39th time James has earned Player of the Week honors in his career, which is an NBA record. The award is also the 41st time in Miami Heat franchise history a player has won player of the week honors, including 13 by James.
