Detroit Pistons big man Andre Drummond has been an absolute monster this season, and after putting up his third 20/20 game of the year on Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers, Drummond earned his second consecutive Eastern Conference Player of the Week honor.
Over the last week, Drummond led the Pistons to a 2-1 record while averaging 22 points and 24.3 rebounds. He notched two 20/20 games, including his 29-point, 25-rebound effort against Portland. The Pistons outscored the Blazers 41-11 in the fourth quarter of the victory, with Drummond playing a big part along with Reggie Jackson.
After six games, Drummond is averaging 20.3 points and 20.3 rebounds as Detroit has gotten out to a 5-1 start.
Over in the Western Conference, Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden bounced back from his horrific start to earn Western Conference Player of the Week honors.
The Rockets won all four games they played last week after losing their first three games of the year, and Harden averaged a league-best 38.5 points over those four games. In the last two games, he scored 43 points and 46 points in wins over the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers, respectively.
