He may have only played two games this past week, but LeBron James has captured my third Player of the Week win in the past four weeks. LeBron make those two games count, with solid and hard-fought wins on the road against Milwaukee and Portland, averaging 35 points, 11.5 boards and 5.5 assists. It was the way he took over the game against Portland that was so impressive, though, hitting two key three-pointers in overtime to help put the Blazers away for good. LeBron and the Miami Heat seem to be playing consistently better ball, and are possibly becoming the team they had the potential to be.
