New York, NY (Sports Network) - Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings and Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki were named the NBA's Eastern and Western Conference players of the week, respectively, for the period ending November 15.

In two games, Jennings averaged 43.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and seven assists to help the Bucks to a 2-0 week. In a 129-125 win over Golden State on November 14, Jennings broke Milwaukee's rookie scoring record with 55 points (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 51). It was the highest point total by a rookie since 1968 (Earl Monroe, 56). Jennings recorded 45 of his 55 points in the second half.

Nowitzki led Dallas to a 3-1 week by averaging 24.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, three assists, and 1.8 blocks. The seven-foot forward connected on 26 of his 27 attempts from the foul line, including consecutive games (vs. Houston, at San Antonio) in which he went 10-for-10.

Lakers' Kobe Bryant, Miami's Dwyane Wade, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Phoenix's Steve Nash, Portland's Brandon Roy and Sacramento's Jason Thompson.
