Players of the Week

May 22 - May 29, 2018

Kia Nurse

In her first professional regular season game in the WNBA, Kia Nurse dropped an efficient 17 points on 50 FG% to go along with two rebounds, three assists, and a pair of steals, aiding her New York Liberty team on both sides of the ball. Her impressive debut came in an 80-76 loss to the Chicago Sky as Nurse and the Liberty look to bounce back against the defending-champions, the Minnesota Lynx, this Friday at home. Congratulations on earning this week's Toyota Player of the Week!

Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson was instrumental in two wins for the Cleveland Cavaliers this week over the Boston Celtics to tie the series at two games apiece in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. In a 116-86 blowout victory, Thompson posted an efficient 10 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and played spectacular defence to help the Cavaliers earn the victory. In the second game just two days later, Thompson helped his team once again defend home court with a 13-point, 12-rebound double-double, leading his team in +/- and ending the night with a 111-102 victory. Thompson will look to maintain this momentum into Boston for game five of the series. Congratulations on earning this week's Toyota Player of the Week!
