Joe Johnson named Player of the Week

Joe Johnson is the first Nets player in more than five years to capture Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors.

The last Nets player to win it? Devin Harris, for the week of Feb. 23 to March 1, 2009.

Johnson averaged 22.0 points on 54.1 percent shooting from March 17-23, and led the Nets to a 4-0 week.

This is the seventh Player of the Week honor Johnson has received in his career.
