          === Carter-Williams, Love named NBA Players of the Week ===
 
 New  York, NY  (SportsNetwork.com)  - Philadelphia  76ers  rookie point  guard
 Michael  Carter-Williams and  Minnesota Timberwolves  forward Kevin  Love were
 named  NBA  Eastern and Western  Conference Players of the Week, respectively,
 for games played Oct. 29-Nov. 3.
 
 Both players guided their respective teams to 3-0 records in the opening week.
 
 Carter-Williams  became the  first rookie to win the award in his initial week
 of
 play  since  Shaquille O'Neal accomplished  the feat in  the first week of the
 1992-93 season.
 
 In  his NBA  debut against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, Carter-
 Williams  flirted  with a quadruple-double,  racking up 22 points, 12 assists,
 nine  steals, and seven  rebounds. The nine steals were the most by any player
 in an NBA debut.
 
 Through  three games,  the  Syracuse  product is  averaging  20.7 points,  9.0
 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.3 steals.
 
 Love,  meanwhile,  led the Timberwolves  to their first  3-0 start in 12 years
 after averaging a league-best 29.7 points while pulling down 14.7 rebounds per
 game.
 
 Love  sank the  game-tying  three-pointer  to force  overtime  in an  eventual
 120-115  win  over Orlando  in  Minnesota's  season-opener before  posting  34
 points,  15 rebounds,  and five assists in  a 109-100 win against the New York
 Knicks on Sunday.
