Like every Monday evening, the NBA unveiled its two “Players of The Week”. In the East, no real surprise since it is still Giannis Antetokounmpo who is honored by the league.
It must be said that the “Greek Freak” runs at 35.3 points (61% success rate), 9.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists over the week and that his Bucks have won three of their four games. This is the second time this season that the strong winger from Wisconsin has been so honored, and it is also the 19th time in his career.
In the West, however, it is a great first since Deandre Ayton was chosen, thanks to his 23.7 points at 67% shooting success, and 16 rebounds on average. As well as three wins in three outings for the Suns.
