Isaiah Thomas and LaMarcus Aldridge have been named the NBA's Players of the Week.
Thomas led the Celtics to a 4-0 week, including a road victory against the Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 20.3 points (12th in the East), 7.0 assists (tied for fourth in the conference) and 4.5 rebounds. On Feb. 7, the Celtics' point guard capped his week by recording 22 points, nine assists, four rebounds, two steals and only one turnover as Boston defeated the Sacramento Kings 128-119 for its ninth victory in 10 games. Thomas, a first-time NBA All-Star selection, will appear in the 65th NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 14 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
Aldridge, who was also selected to the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, sparked the Spurs to a 4-0 week. He averaged 26.0 points (tied for seventh in the NBA), 7.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots (tied for fourth in the West). He shot 59.7 percent from the field and 90.9 percent from the free throw line. Aldridge scored at least 26 points in three of four games, including a season-high 36-point performance to go with six rebounds and three blocks in a 110-97 victory against the New Orleans Pelicans on Feb. 3.
