Kevin Durant named NBA's Western Conference player of the week
Kevin Durant has something to smile about this week: he was named the Western Conference Player of the week for last week.
The OKlahoma City Thunder forward won the honor after a spectacular week last week when he scored 24 points in all three games, guiding the Thunder to wins in them all.
His week included two double-doubles and a 32-point, 12-assist, 10-rebound triple-double in the Thunder's 113-103 win over Minnesota Sunday:
Nov. 27 vs. San Antonio: Posted a 24-point, 13-rebound, four-assist effort in a 94-88 victory over the Spurs.
Nov. 29 vs. Golden State: Recorded 25 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in a 113-112 overtime victory against the Warriors.
Dec. 2 vs. Minnesota: In addition to recording a triple-double of 32 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, contributed four blocks and four steals in a 113-103 victory over the Timberwolves.
The Eastern Conference winner was LeBron James who helped the Heat win four games while shooting over 60% from the field and scoring at least 25 points in all four games.
