New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love were named NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Oct. 29-Nov. 3.

Both players guided their respective teams to 3-0 records in the opening week.

Carter-Williams became the first rookie to win the award in his initial week of play since Shaquille O'Neal accomplished the feat in the first week of the 1992-93 season.

In his NBA debut against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, Carter- Williams flirted with a quadruple-double, racking up 22 points, 12 assists, nine steals, and seven rebounds. The nine steals were the most by any player in an NBA debut.

Through three games, the Syracuse product is averaging 20.7 points, 9.0 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.3 steals.

Love, meanwhile, led the Timberwolves to their first 3-0 start in 12 years after averaging a league-best 29.7 points while pulling down 14.7 rebounds per game.

Love sank the game-tying three-pointer to force overtime in an eventual 120-115 win over Orlando in Minnesota's season-opener before posting 34 points, 15 rebounds, and five assists in a 109-100 win against the New York Knicks on Sunday.
