After averaging 24.3 points, 8.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 steals, Washington Wizards guard John Wall was selected Eastern Conference player of the week for games played Monday, November 18, through Sunday, November 24.

 This is the second time Wall has won this award in his career. Wall also shot .500 from the field, .880 from the free-throw line and .500 from three-point-range while leading the Wizards to a 301 record during the week.

 The fourth-year guard also tallied 30+ points in consecutive games for the first time in his career after scoring a season-high 37 at Toronto on 11/22 (including 30 in the second half) and then 31 vs. New York in a 98-89 win on 11/23.  Wall had two double-doubles on the week and scored 14 points while dishing out a career-high tying 16 assists, with only one turnover, in a 104-100 win vs. Minnesota on 11/19.

 On the season, Wall is averaging 18.6 points, 8.9 assists and 4.5 rebounds.
