Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas was named NBA Eastern Conference player of the week for Nov.7-13.

In three games, Arenas averaged a league-high 31 points on 54.4 percent shooting and handed out 7.7 assists as the Wizards went 2-1. That included an NBA season-high 43-point effort in a 15-point victory over the NBA defending champion San Antonio Spurs. He posted 32 points in a win over Seattle and had his first double-double (18 points, 10 assists) in a loss to the surprising Los Angeles Clippers.

“It is a great honor to be recognized for this award,” Arenas said. “We had two great wins against Seattle and San Antonio last week. Individual honors come with team success, and the most important thing is that we are really coming together and playing well.”

Arenas won the award last season in late November, becoming the first Washington player to win it since Michael Jordan in March 2003.
