David Lee Named Western Conference Player of the Week
Warriors forward David Lee has been named NBA Western Conference Player of the Week, the NBA announced on Monday.
Lee helped guide the Warriors to a perfect 4-0 week — all on the road — with wins over Orlando, Miami, Atlanta and Washington. The Warriors are in the midst of a nine game winning streak, one shy of the Warriors franchise record.
The Warriors current six game road winning streak is a franchise record.
Lee averaged 24.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists during the 4-0 week, which was highlighted by a 32 point (13-17 shooting), 14 rebound effort in Miami in a win against the two-time defending champions.
Other nominees for the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week were Brooklyn’s Deron Williams, Los Angeles Lakers’ Pau Gasol, Miami’s LeBron James, New York’s Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Phoenix’s Goran Dragic and Toronto’s Kyle Lowry.
The Warriors now head to Milwaukee and Brooklyn before coming home Friday night for a matchup with the Boston Celtics.
