The Boston Celtics had a huge week, winning four straight games including a statement victory over their conference rival Miami Heat, and their captain has earned some recognition for it. Paul Pierce today was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Pierce led the C's to wins over the Charlotte Bobcats, Utah Jazz, Minnesota Timberwolves and finally the Heat in a nationally televised tilt on Sunday afternoon. His most eye-popping game statistically came Monday in Charlotte, as he dropped 36 points and 10 rebounds; he also kept LeBron James without a single assist in the big win over Miami.
