NBA News: Kevin Durant, DeMar DeRozan Named Players Of The Week

Raptors’ shooting guard DeMar DeRozan has been named NBA’s Players of the Week along with Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Kevin Durant.

Masai Ujiri is reluctant to hold extension talks with him. But Raptors’ shooting guard DeMar DeRozan has been named NBA’s Players of the Week along with Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Kevin Durant.

DeRozan was the key man in Toronto’s three wins in four games last week. He posted enviable figures of 24.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game to clinch the top slot of the Eastern Conference last week. A performance that would spark more trade interest on the shooting guard in the coming free agency. DeRozan posted 28 points in the thrilling victory over San Antonio Spurs and finished with 27 against the Milwaukee Bucks.

A vintage Kevin Durant led OKC to 4-0 last week. He scored 30 or more points in two games shooting 59.7 percent from the floor, which is fourth in the Western Conference. Durant notched up figures of 27.3 points (third in the league), 8.8 rebounds, 6.3 assists (ninth in conference), and 1.8 steals.

Durant saw off Memphis Grizzlies with 32 points and 10 rebounds and signed off the week posting 31 points and six assists in his side’s overtime victory over the Utah Jazz.
