The NBA named Jared Sullinger the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.
Sullinger averaged 23.7 points (60.0 FG%), 12.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 blocks in three victories against the Magic, 76ers and Kings last week, recording three of his five straight double-doubles. Jordan Crawford (Dec. 2-8) is the only other Celtics  player to earn the honor this season.
Here are Sullinger’s performances last week:
Sullinger has cemented himself as either a building block for the Celtics future or one heck of a trade chip (a la Al Jefferson  in 2007). Not bad for an undersized big who fell to No. 21 and missed much of his rookie season due to back surgery.
Thunder superstar Kevin Durant  took home the Western Conference Player of the Week honor.
