Jeff Teague named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Mike Stobe

In a somewhat surprising announcement, Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague has been named as the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

The Atlanta Hawks had a very productive stretch of time at the office in the last week, as they won 3 out of their 4 games while clinching the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race. In that vein, Jeff Teague had a special week of his own, and he has been rewarded with a big-time honor as bestowed by the NBA.

As indicated by the Hawks via their official Twitter account, Atlanta's point guard has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, and the numbers back up that showing. In the 4 games, Teague averaged 20.3 points (on 51% FG and 91% FT) to go along with 5.8 assists (to just 1.5 turnovers) and 1.8 steals per game, and that was good enough to earn the honor for the first time in his career.

In fairness, Teague is likely winning the award due to the team success (especially in the wins over Miami and Brooklyn), but the point guard is often the best barometer for evaluating this year's team, and as he plays well, the team usually shines.

Congrats, Jeff!
