For the second time this year, Warriors forward David Lee has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week.

While leading Golden State to four straight wins, Lee averaged 18.0 points, 14.3 rebounds, 7.8 assists and 1.0 steals. His four double-doubles brings his NBA-leading total to 31 for the season and pair of 20-point, 10-rebound games extended his league-leading total to 19 such performances.

It's the third such award in Lee's seven-year career. His first came as a member of the New York Knicks on Feb. 1, 2009 and the second came in December for the Warriors.

The team's first All-Star selection since 1997 is averaging 19.4 points (t-12 in NBA), 11.1 rebounds (sixth) and 4.0 assists per game.
