The NBA announced Monday that Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played March 5-11. The honor is the first of Ilyasova’s career and the first for a Bucks player since Andrew Bogut on March 15, 2010.
During the 4-game stretch, Ilyasova averaged 25.0 points and 10.8 rebounds per game while shooting 63.8% from the field, 66.7% from behind the arc and 90.0% from the free throw line.
Ilyasova recorded three double-doubles to add to his team-leading total of 11, and posted the first two 30-point games of his career.
The Bucks went 3-1 on the week, posting home wins against Philadelphia and New York before capping the week with a road win in Toronto last night.
On the season, Ilyasova is averaging 12.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while shooting a career-best 42.6% from behind the arc (15th in the NBA).
