After a stellar week of performances, Kyle Lowry was given the honour of being the NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

In the face of adversity with DeMar DeRozan being lost to injury, Toronto's other (should be) All-Star took it upon himself to carry the Raps, and the NBA took notice.

The "Bulldog of Bay Street" had a stellar week of individual performance from December 1st to 7th, capped by his career-high 39 points in an authoritative win over the Jazz this past Wednesday night.

As well as averaging 29.3 points per game (PPG) over the past week, Lowry also averaged 8.3 assists, and shot 49 percent from the field and over 90 percent from the charity stripe.

Lowry's production on the road has been fantastic, as his 26.3 PPG leads the league in road scoring, and his wonderful 6.44 assist to turnover ratio on the road puts him second among NBA players.

Lowry joins Lou Williams as the second Raptor to be named a Player of the Week this year. This is the third time in team history that multiple players have won a Player of the Week in the same season, and the third since Chris Bosh and the Amityville Horror himself, Mike James, won during the 2005-06 season.

KLOE kept the good play rolling against the Nuggets last night, overcoming a shaky start shooting wise to finish with both 13 points and assists in the OT win.

Congrats Kyle!
