Nets star Kevin Durant has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for Nov. 8-14.

In four games for Brooklyn, Durant averaged 32.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in 34 minutes per game, leading the Nets to a 3-1 week.

The honor comes as Durant’s second as a member of the Nets and the 28th of his career, behind only LeBron James (64) and Kobe Bryant (33) for most all time since the award was first introduced in the 1979-80 season.

At 10-4 this year and still without Kyrie Irving, the Nets have relied heavily on Durant. In 14 games this season, Durant has picked up right where he left off last season, leading the league in scoring at 29.6 points per game to go along with 8.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists.

He’s one of seven players in the league averaging 25 points per game, five rebounds per game, and five assists per game, already scoring 30 points a league-high seven times this year.

Durant has also set a franchise record by scoring at least 20 points in all 14 games to start the season.
