The NBA announced today that Miami Heat forward LeBron James has won the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, November 25, through Sunday, December 1.

James led the HEAT to a perfect 4-0 record as part of their current ten-game winning streak. He averaged a league-high 29.0 points, to go along with 6.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.50 steals while shooting 60.3 percent from the field, 46.7 percent from three-point range and 86.8 percent from the foul line.

This marks the 45th time LeBron has won this award in his career (most ever in the NBA), including 19 times as a Heat player. This is the 48th time a Heat player has won the award.
