Joe Johnson has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week, for the week of March 17-23. Johnson averaged 23 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists as the Nets went 4-0.
Johnson is the first Nets player this season to win the award, and the first Nets player since 2009 to win the award, when Devin Harris took it home for his play during the week of February 23-March 1.
Brooklyn has won 11 straight games at home and four straight overall, which is the second longest winning streak in the NBA, behind the San Antonio Spurs who are winners of 13 straight.
The Nets play again on Monday night against the New Orleans Pelicans, where they look to win their 5th straight game.
