Paul George named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

USA TODAY Sports

The NBA awarded Paul George as Player of the Week after impressive performances against Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Detroit.

After leading the Indiana Pacers to their first three-game winning streak of the season, the NBA named Paul George the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. The Pacers were 3-0 last week, with wins over Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Detroit. In the three games, George averaged 23.3 PPG, 7.0 RPG, and 6.7 AST, including games with three blocks and four steals. The award comes as part of the third year wing's emergence as a key contributor for the Pacers' recent success.

vs. Cleveland: 27 points, seven rebounds, and three assists on 10-18 shooting
vs. Philadelphia: 28 points, six rebounds, and three blocks including five three pointers
vs. Detroit: 15 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and four steals

The honor is George's first Player of the Week award, and the first for a Pacers player since the opening week of the 2007-08 season, when Danny Granger averaged 22.7 PPG and 8.7 RPG in the Pacers' 3-0 start.
