The Boston Celtics' Paul Pierce and the Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol today were named the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played March 15-21.

Pierce led Boston to a 4-0 week, with wins over Detroit, New York, Houston and Dallas. Pierce averaged 24.8 points -- 6.7 points above than his season average (18.1 ppg) -- on .630 shooting in 26.4 minutes. Pierce also added 3.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 steals. On March 20, Pierce scored 29 points and added five assists, three rebounds and two steals in the Celtics' 102-93 win at Dallas.

Well deserved. Paul's been on an absolute tear lately, and his play has undoubtedly factored into the Celtics' recent success.
