Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving has been named NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, January 26, through Sunday, February 1.
This is the first time this season that Irving has won the award, but it's the third time in his career to earn the Player of the Week accolade.
This marks the second consecutive week a Cavalier player has won the award, LeBron James won the award last week.
Irving led the Cavs to a perfect 4-0 record this past week while averaging 31.5 points a game. Irving was the only Eastern Conference player to average 30.0 points a game.
Irving's week started with a 38-point effort against the Pistons, but the All-Star would top that total the very next night in a win against Portland by posting 55 points, and set a new franchise record with 11 three-pointers. The Cavaliers are currently on a 10-game win streak.
