With wins come accolades. After leading the Kings to 3-1 record, DeMarcus Cousins has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week.
Cousins, 26, posted a huge line during the hot streak, averaging 27.8 points, 14.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks for Sacramento.
His assist totals have steadily risen all season long as he's become more comfortable in the coach Dave Joerger's offence. Over his last eighteen games, Cousins is averaging 6.2 dimes per game, including a high of 11 assists in the Kings loss to Cleveland on Jan. 13.
The three-time All-Star has rattled off 12 straight double-doubles and he is fresh off a 35-point, 18-rebounds, four-assist effort against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday evening.
This is the fifth time Cousins has earned Western Conference Player of the Week honors. He was previously honored with the acknowledgement on Jan. 25, 2016, Nov. 16, 2015, Nov. 24, 2014 and Jan. 13, 2014.
