Big 12 NBA Player of the Week - Week 4

In what might be a recurring theme, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is again the Big 12 NBA Player of the Week.

The former Texas Longhorn earned his second award in the four weeks of the young NBA season by averaging 28.3 points per game, nine rebounds per game and 3.7 assists per game over the Thunders' three games this Thanksgiving week. If there is a weakness in Durant's game, though, it might be in field goal percentage, a category he registered just 43.5% over the course of the week. But then again, that is nit picky.

During the week, Durant's Thunder defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves and last week's Big 12 NBA Player of the Week, Michael Beasley. The also won at the Indiana Pacers while losing to the Dallas Mavericks, a loss which snapped a five game winning streak.

This is the first time a player has been a repeat winner of the award, and it might not be the last time we see Durant's name posted on Sunday evenings.
