James Harden has been named the NBA's Western Conference Player of the Week.

During the past week, when the Rockets were the NBA's lone team with a perfect 4-0 record, Harden averaged 29.3 points, 3.25 steals, and 5.5 assists.

He currently has a 12-game streak with at least 25 points a game, which is tied with Elvin Hayes for second in franchise history behind Moses Malone's 13 consecutive 25-plus point games.

This is the second time Harden's won the honor this season. Tracy McGrady was the last Rocket to achieve that feat, doing so in the 2007-'08 season.
