               === James, Westbrook earn NBA's weekly honors ===
 
 New  York,  NY (Sports Network)  - The Miami  Heat's LeBron James and Oklahoma
 City Thunder's Russell Westbrook were named the NBA Players of the Week in the
 Eastern  and Western  Conference, respectively,  for the  games played  Feb. 4
 through Feb. 10.
 
 James  was nearly flawless  in averaging 31.3 points per game on a superb 73.8
 percent  shooting to  guide the Heat to  a perfect 4-0 record for the week. He
 scored  at least 30 points in each contest and his streak of five straight 30-
 plus point games while shooting 60 percent or better is tied with Moses Malone
 and Adrian Dantley for the NBA record.
 
 Westbrook  helped motor the Thunder to blowout victories in each of their four
 wins  during the  week, averaging 21.8 points, 6.0 assists, 3.3 steals and 3.0
 rebounds  per game.  Oklahoma City won each  contest by at least 20 points and
 trails the San Antonio Spurs by just a one-half game for the top record in the
 league.
 
 Others  considered  for the weekly award  were Boston's Kevin Garnett and Paul
 Pierce,  Houston's  James Harden,  Indiana's David  West, New Orleans' Greivis
 Vasquez,  Oklahoma  City's Kevin Durant,  San Antonio's Tony Parker, Toronto's
 Rudy Gay and Washington's Martell Webster.
