Anthony earns conference's player of week honor

The NBA has named Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony the Western Conference player of the week.

Anthony has the Nuggets out to their first 3-0 start since the 1985-86 season.

He is averaging a league-leading 37.7 points a game. He scored 30 points against Utah in the season opener, then followed that up the next night with a 41-point effort at Portland. He also had 42 against Memphis.

This is the ninth time Anthony has been named player of the week, and his first honor since the 2007-08 season. The last Nuggets player to earn the distinction was Chauncey Billups just about a year ago on Nov. 17, 2008.
