MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Grizzlies veteran power forward Zach Randolph won the NBA Western Conference Player of the Week award for January 26 through February 1.
Randolph averaged 20.5 points per game and 13.8 rebounds per game while leading the Grizzlies to four straight wins over the Magic, Mavericks, Nuggets and Thunder.
Randolph is averaging 17.1 points per game and is third in the NBA with 12.2 rebounds per game for the season. Since missing 9 games with a sore right knee, Randolph has returned for twelve games, with a double-double in each of them. His 12-game double-double streak is the longest in the NBA this season, and just two games short of his personal record.
This is Randolph's fourth player of the week honor as a Grizzly, breaking Pau Gasol's team record of three.
Randolph will test his mettle on a three game road trip this week, as the Grizzlies take on the Phoenix Suns on Monday, the Utah Jazz, Wednesday, and the Minnesota Timberwolves, Friday.
