 CLEVELAND – The NBA announced today that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has been named the Eastern Conference Player of Week for games played Monday, November 16, through Sunday, November 22. This marks the first time this season James has earned Player of the Week accolades, as well as the 49th time in his career, the most in NBA history.

No other player in the NBA averaged at least 25.0 points while shooting at least .500 from the field, .600 from beyond the arc and .800 from the charity stripe this past week. Among Eastern Conference leaders, James was third in points per game (25.3), tied for fifth in field goals made (28), tied for 11th in assists per game (5.7) and tied for 14th in rebounds per game (8.7). The 11-time NBA All-Star also scored in double figures in all three games, extending his double-digit scoring streak to 654 games, which is the third-longest streak in league history.

James started the week off by tallying a game-high 30 points on 11-21 (.524) shooting from the field, including 4-7 (.571) from long distance, six rebounds and three assists in 40 minutes at Detroit on Nov. 17. With his 10th point of the night, a three-pointer at the 3:06 mark of the first quarter, he surpassed Jerry West (25,192) for 19th place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. In the Cavs’ 115-100 win over Milwaukee on Nov. 19, James posted a team-high 27 points on 9-13 (.692) shooting from the field, nine rebounds and six assists in 35 minutes.
