Russell Westbrook, LeBron James Highlight NBA’s February Awards

Russell Westbrook just wrapped up one of the best months of all-time, so it should be no surprise that he was named the Western Conference Player of the Month for February. Westbrook averaged 31.2 points, 10.3 assists and 9.1 rebounds in February, joining Oscar Robertson as the only two players to put up those kind of averages in a calendar month. He ended the month with three consecutive triple-doubles, and he notched his fourth-straight triple-double on Wednesday night.

Over in the Eastern Conference, LeBron James took home the Player of the Month award. James averaged 24.4 points and 7.3 assists, which was first and second in the East in February, respectively. James has helped the Cleveland Cavaliers get back into title contention, and like Westbrook, has thrust himself back into the MVP conversation.

The Rookies of the Month were Andrew Wiggins and Marcus Smart. Wiggins is going to be a shoe-in for the Rookie of the Year award, and he averaged 16.8 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field in February. Smart had a solid all-around month, averaging 9.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.6 steals.

And finally, Scott Brooks and Frank Vogel were named Coach of the Month in their respective conferences. Brooks guided the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 9-3 record in February, while Frank Vogel led the Indiana Pacers to a 7-2 record.
