Heat forward LeBron James was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the second consecutive week on Tuesday. James has won the award 39 times in his career, and 13 times while a member of the Miami Heat.

The Heat went 3-1 over the past week, and James averaged 29 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 1 steal per game over that stretch, while shooting just under 49% from the field and 40% from three-point range. He had two double-doubles over that four-game period, and has now scored at least 20 points in each of the Heat's first 11 games this season, surpassing his previous career best. He's also scored at least 10 points in 430 consecutive games, including 152 straight with the Heat, setting a new franchise record.

The Heat next play on Wednesday night, when they host the Milwaukee Bucks at American Airlines Arena.
