Carmelo Anthony named Western Conference Player of Week

Carmelo Anthony's return to the NBA is barely two weeks' old, and he's already being recognized for his strong play.

The league on Monday named the Portland Trail Blazers forward its Western Conference Player of the Week. The Trail Blazers went 3-0, beating the Bulls twice as well as the Thunder. Anthony led those efforts, averaging 22.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists.

The last time Anthony was named a player of the week was March 10, 2014, while he was a member of the Knicks.

Anthony has now played six games for the Blazers since signing with them last month.
