Dejounte Murray was named as one of five nominees for Western Conference Player of the Week.— Noah Magaro-George (@N_Magaro) December 6, 2021
The sixth-year floor general averaged 20 points, 9.7 boards, and 9.3 assists as the Spurs went 3-0.
Though Donovan Mitchell ultimately took home this weekly honor, Murray averaged 20 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 9.3 assists per game while leading the Spurs to a 3-0 record over the Wizards, Blazers, and Warriors.
DeMar DeRozan is the last player to win Western Conference Player of the Week for the San Antonio, and the four-time All-Star just so happened to receive Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the Bulls.
Dejounte is a first-time nominee for this award, but he could very well walk away with this hebdomadal hardware if the Silver and Black continue to extend their season-best four-game winning streak.
The stringy floor general faces a difficult individual matchup against Mikal Bridges as San Antonio squares off with the shorthanded Phoenix Suns at the Footprint Center tonight.
