Paul George, Kevin Durant named Players of the Month in November

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

George and Durant were rewarded by the league for their efforts in November.

Paul George of the Pacers and Kevin Durant of the Thunder are the East and West NBA Players of the Month for their work in November, the league announced Tuesday.

George scored 23 points and shot over 40 percent from three-point range while playing a major defensive role for the league's best team while Durant averaged 27 points, eight rebounds and five assists for the 12-3 Thunder. Each guy is coming off a huge night: Durant recorded a triple-double on Sunday and George scored a career-high 43 points Monday night.

The league also announced that the Sixers' Michael Carter-Williams and the Kings' Ben McLemore earned East and West Rookie of the Month honors.

Carter-Williams, the clear front-runner for Rookie of the Year, has played fantastic in his first 14 games as the lead guard in Philadelphia. He's averaging 17 points, seven assists, five rebounds and three steals a night -- numbers few expected from the Syracuse product this early in his career. McLemore's numbers don't pop out as much as Carter-Williams, but he has earned his way to the starting lineup and is averaging 14 points per-36 minutes.
