James Eastern Conference Player of Month

LeBron James averaged 24.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 1.64 steals while shooting 58.1 percent from the field in December.

Should it come as any surprise he was named Friday the Kia Eastern Conference Player of the Month for his play?

This is the 21st time a Miami Heat player has earned the monthly award, and James has accounted for 11 of them, the most of any player in Heat franchise history.

James’ play helped his team to an 11-4 record, the best in the East for the last month of 2013. He scored at least 20 points in 10 games and recorded three double-doubles. Five times he scored at least 25 points and three times more than 30.

He scored in double figures in all 14 games he appeared in (he sat out the win over Portland on Dec. 28), extending his streak of double-figure scoring games to 526, which is tied for the fourth-longest in NBA history.

And James did it despite being hobbled by groin and ankle injuries in the last week of the month.

Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was named the Player of the Month for December for the Western Conference after leading the Thunder to a 14-3 mark, averaging 29.4 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists over that span.
