Heat’s James, Thunder’s Durant Named NBA Players of the Week

The NBA named their Players of the Week for the week for Monday, November 12th to Sunday through November 18th. For the Eastern Conference, we have a repeat winner in LeBron James of the Miami Heat. For the Western Conference, Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant was chosen as the Player of the Week.

LeBron James led the Heat to a 3-1 record and had averaged of 29.0 points, 7.3 boards, and 7.0 assists during that four-game week. That week was highlighted by a 38-point takeover in a 113-110 close victory against Houston.

As for Durant, he led the Thunder to a 3-1 record as well. The three-time scoring champion averaged 28.0 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 5.8 assists during that stretch. He had a triple double (25 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists) against Golden State and it was the first time in his career he had achieved that.

James and Durant are considered the two best players in the NBA today. So don’t be surprised if they win many more of these throughout the season.

Congrats to James and Durant for the Player of the Week award.
