    NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2008 – The Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James and the San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginobili today were named the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Tuesday, Feb. 19 through Sunday, Feb. 24.
    During a 3-1 week for the Cavaliers, James recorded back-to-back triple-doubles (Feb. 19 vs. Houston and Feb. 20 at Indiana) and averaged a triple-double (28.8 points, 12.3 rebounds, 10.5 assists) over Cleveland’s four games. James became the first player since Magic Johnson in 1988 to record triple-doubles on consecutive days twice in the same season, as he previously posted back-to-back triple-doubles on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25. For the week, James led the Eastern Conference in assists, was third in rebounding and fourth in scoring.
    Ginobili guided the Spurs to a 3-0 week, averaging 30.7 points, 6.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds. Ginobili, who leads the Spurs in scoring at 20.7 ppg, hit the game-winning jumper against the Timberwolves on Feb. 21, to cap a 44-point night. Over his last five contests (all victories), Ginobili shot .640 (55-for-86) from the field and .591 (26-of-44) from three-point range.
