Detroit Pistons forward Tobias Harris and Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic have been named the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week.

Harris (21.3 points, 7.7 rebounds) and Jokic (22.7 points, 13.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 2.3 steals) both stood out on teams that went 3-0 for the week of Nov. 6-12.

Harris has been rewarded for his steadily solid play – he scored between 16 and 25 points in the three games, without one particular standout performance – while Jokic put forth one of the best games for any player all season by going for 41 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks on Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets.

Harris’ week was defined by scalding-hot 3-point shooting – 63.6 percent on more than seven attempts per game – while Jokic’s all-around brilliance saw him rank second in the league in plus-minus for the week at plus-55.
