The NBA announced Monday that Toronto Raptors forward Chris Bosh was named NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, January 25 through Sunday, January 31. This is the sixth time Bosh has won the honour, having previously earned the award for the weeks of October 28 – November 2, 2008, January 14-21, 2008, March 26 - April 1, 2007, January 30 - February 5, 2006 and January 3-9, 2005.

Bosh led the Raptors to a 3-0 mark to finish the month, averaging 25.7 points, 16.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists. He registered three double-doubles and led the team in rebounding three times and scoring twice. Bosh totaled 27 points and a Raptors season-high and game-high 18 rebounds in a 111-103 victory January 27 vs. Miami. Bosh recorded team highs of 27 points and 15 rebounds the next night in New York against the Knicks. He closed out the week with 26 points and 15 rebounds (both game highs) and a season-best seven assists in Toronto’s 117-102 win January 31 vs. Indiana. Bosh is the first player in franchise history to record at least 20 points and 15 rebounds in three consecutive games. He is also just the third Raptor to register three straight games of at least 15 rebounds (Jerome Williams, January 14-17, 2003 and Popeye Jones, November 26-30, 1996).

A product of Georgia Tech in his seventh season, Bosh leads the team in scoring (24.0), rebounding (11.4) and minutes (36.0). Earlier this season Bosh passed Vince Carter to become the franchise’s all-time points leader with his 9,421st point.

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant was named Western Conference Player of the Week after averaging an NBA-best 34.3 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists on the week.
