Miami Heat star LeBron James and Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant have been named the NBA's Players of the Week.

The All-Star duo have been in outstanding form for their respective sides this season.

Durant has the best points average this season with an average of 28.3 per game, while James is third with an average of 26.2.

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is currently second, however the 29-year-old has been out of form in recent weeks.

Durant has helped his franchise to third spot in the Western Conference, with Scott Brooks' side winning 12 of their opening 15 games of the NBA season.

James' Miami Heat are also near the top of their respective table, as his franchise are currently in second spot - having won 14 of their first 17 games.

James and Durant will be hoping they can replicate their recent fine form in December, as both players face a busy fixture schedule during the festive period.
