Garland gains weekly award

CLEVELAND – Cleveland Cavaliers guard Darius Garland was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday. This marks Garland’s first career player of the week award and the 64th time a Cavalier has ever won the weekly honor, including the second time this season (Jarrett Allen in Week 3).

Garland led the Cavaliers to an NBA-best 4-0 record this past week, will all four victories occurring on the road against Western Conference opponents. The third-year guard posted a double-double in three games, including one triple-double performance, while averaging 20.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 12.8 assists (second-best in NBA) and 1.0 steal in 35.5 minutes per contest. He shot a perfect 15-of-15 from the foul line and was one of only two players in the NBA to average at least 20.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 12.0 assists last week (James Harden).
