NEW YORK, March 6 (UPI) -- The Philadelphia 76ers' Allen Iverson and Memphis Grizzlies' Pau Gasol were named Monday as NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week.

Iverson won his third Player of the Week award this season after averaging 37.3 points, 9.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds over four games.

He had back-to-back games with at least 40 points and 10 assists, becoming the first player to accomplish that since Denver's Michael Adams in 1991. Iverson had 40 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds against Houston on March 1. He had 47 points and 12 assists against Washington two days later.

Gasol averaged 26.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 2.3 blocks to help Memphis beat Washington, New York, and the Los Angeles Clippers. He began the week by scoring 39 points while adding 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocked shots against the Wizards on Feb. 27.
