Oladipo named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the second time

Following his best week as a professional basketball player, the NBA named Victor Oladipo the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played December 4-10.

Oladipo averaged 30.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.8 steals per game in helping the Pacers win all four of their games — over New York, Chicago, Cleveland, and Denver.

He posted a career-high 47 points in an overtime win Sunday evening over Denver, 126-116. It was the fifth highest point total recorded in franchise history.

Oladipo did not earn this honor over his first four seasons but has now won it twice this season over the first 27 games. He was previously named conference Player of the Week on Oct. 30.

He faces his former team on Wednesday, as the Oklahoma City Thunder make their only visit to Indy. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.

Paul George earned Player of the Week honors five times over his seven seasons, including twice during the 2013-14 season.
