Kevin Durant Named Player of the Week

Congratulations to Kevin Durant, who was named the NBA Western Conference Player of the Week.

Heat's James, Thunder's Durant Named Players of the Week |

Durant averaged 29.3 points and 11.0 rebounds per game during the week of Jan. 31 to Feb. 6, leading the Thunder to a 3-0 record during that time span. He joins the Heat's LeBron James in winning the honor. In each of the three games, Durant had a double-double, and his high point total was his ridiculous 43 points off of 14-19 shooting in the Thunder's win against the Hornets on Feb. 2.

By my count, this is Durant's first Player of the Week honor, which means the unofficial scorecard reads:

Russell Westbrook: 2, Durant: 1
