After helping the Miami Heat to a 9-1 record last month, LeBron James was named the NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month for February, the league announced Wednesday.
James averaged 30.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 2.67 steals a game while shooting 57.5 percent from the field. It’s the 12th time James took the award in four seasons and second time this season.
He becomes just the second player in NBA history to average at least 30 points, eight rebounds and six assists while shooting at least 57 percent from the field during a single month (minimum of six games), joining Wilt Chamberlain who accomplished the feat in February of 1966.
Dessert note: James’ streak of scoring in double-digits is 551 games, the fourth-longest such streak in NBA history.
