Dwight Howard named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Just another feather in the cap for Dwight Howard. This is the third time this season that he has won the award, and considering the way he’s been playing lately I wouldn’t be surprised to see him grab another one before the season is over. From the press release:

Howard led Orlando to a 3-0 record, averaging 23.7 points on .614 shooting from the field, 14.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks for the Magic, which clinched its second consecutive Southeast Division title. During Orlando ’s 84-82 win over Boston on March 25, Howard posted 24 points, 21 rebounds and four blocks. Orlando owns a half-game lead on Boston in the race for the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Here are Dwight’s individual numbers for last week, courtesy of the Magic: Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic March 23 @ New York: Posted 29 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks in a 106-102 win over the Knicks. March 25 vs. Boston: Recorded 24 points, 21 rebounds and four blocks in an 84-82 win over the Celtics.
