CLEVELAND – The NBA announced today that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has been named the Eastern Conference Player of Week for games played Monday, March 28, through Sunday, April 3. This marks the fifth time this season James has earned Player of the Week accolades, as well as the 53rd time in his career, the most in NBA history. It also marks the 53rd time in franchise history a player has earned Player of the Week honors and the 34th time James has earned the honor as a member of the Cavaliers.

James played in three games this past week for Cleveland (all wins), averaging a near triple-double with 28.0 points on .576 shooting from the field, 9.3 rebounds, 10.7 assists and 2.3 steals in 38.7 minutes per contest. He led the Eastern Conference in points per game (28.0), while ranking second in assists per game (10.7), second in plus/minus (+44), tied for third in double-doubles (3), tied for seventh in steals per game (2.3) and ninth in rebounds per game (9.3). The 12-time NBA All-Star was the only player in the league to average at least 20.0 points and 10.0 assists while shooting .500 or better.

James, who recorded a double-double and scored 20 points or more in each of his three games, started the week off with 24 points on 8-11 (.727) shooting, seven rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and one block in 31 minutes during Cleveland’s 107-87 win over Brooklyn on March 31. With his basket at the 3:52 mark in the first quarter, he surpassed Dominique Wilkins (26,668) for 12th place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. The following night, James moved past Oscar Robertson (26,710) for 11th place all-time in scoring while recording 29 points, a season-high 16 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one block in 44 minutes of the Cavs’ 110-108 overtime victory over Atlanta on April 1. James closed out the week with his 28th double-double of the season after tallying 31 points on 14-22 (.636) shooting, eight rebounds, 12 assists and two steals in 41 minutes during a 112-103 victory over Charlotte on April 3.

In 2015-16, James has appeared in 73 games (all starts) with averages of 25.2 points (sixth in NBA) on .512 shooting from the field, 7.5 rebounds, 6.8 assists (ninth in NBA) and 1.4 steals in 35.7 minutes per game. His five player of the week awards this season are the most in the Eastern Conference and tied for the most in the NBA. James and the Cavaliers currently sit atop the Eastern Conference with a 55-22 record.
