The NBA announced that Tobias Harris and Nikola Jokic have been named the NBA's Players of the Week.
Harris, 25, averaged 21.3 points and 7.7 rebounds while shooting 49% (22-45) from the field and 64% (14-22) from beyond the arc to lead the Pistons to a 3-0 record for the week. Harris connected on four-plus 3-pointers in each game while shooting better than 55% from behind the arc in all three games.
“I’m honored to be named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, but this is truly a testament to how well we’ve been playing as a team,” Harris said. “My coaches and teammates put me in positions to succeed and this recognition is a result of the hard work we put in, as a group, during the offseason and training camp.”
Jokic averaged 17.2 points, 11.9 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game last week.
