The NBA announced on Monday that Brandon Jennings and Kevin Durant were named Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Monday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, Jan. 13.
Jennings led the Milwaukee Bucks to a 3-1 week, including come-from-behind road victories over the Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors. He spearheaded both efforts, scoring 20 points in the third quarter of the Jan. 9 game at Chicago, 12 of which came from behind the arc. He was second in the Eastern Conference in scoring with 24.5 ppg while shooting 48 percent from the field for the week to go along with 6.5 apg and 4.0 rpg.
Durant helped the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 3-1 record last week, scoring more than 25 points in each contest, including a season-high 42 points in Los Angeles against the Lakers on Jan. 11. He averaged a league-best 32.5 points to go with 6.8 rpg and 5.5 apg.
