Chris Paul was named the Player of the Week today in the Western Conference -- the first time this season that a Clipper has received the honor. From the press release sent out by the NBA:

Paul guided the Clippers to a 4-0 mark, averaging 21.5 points on 56 percent shooting, while dishing out 11.3 assists per contest. He began the week with 25 points and 10 assists, as the Clippers defeated Paul's former team, the New Orleans Hornets, 97-85 on March 26. Paul, who ranks third in the NBA in assists (8.8 apg), matched his season high with 15 assists in a 103-86 win over the Phoenix Suns on March 28.

Basically, Paul led the Clippers to three easy wins -- and in the fourth one, he hit the game winner with five seconds left. So yeah, that's a pretty good week. It definitely helps that the Clippers were undefeated during the week -- the voters do like the team success, just like for the All-Star game and MVP.

Paul Pierce won the award for the Eastern Conference.

Congratulations to CP3. Let's get some more wins and get one of these honors for Blake Griffin now.
