BOSTON (CBS) – After averaging 23.3 points over a three-game stretch, Celtics guard Jordan Crawford was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday.

Crawford, better known as “Steez” among his teammates, kicked his week off by scoring a season-high 25 points in a 108-100 win over the Milwaukee Bucks last Tuesday. He followed that up with a 22-point, eight assist effort in a 106-98 win over the Nuggets on Friday night, and hit a career-high six three-pointers on Sunday in Boston’s blowout win over the New York Knicks.
