Nik Vučević - David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The third-year center became the first Magic player to win the honor since Dwight Howard.

The NBA announced Monday that Orlando Magic center Nikola Vučević won Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors for his performance from March 24th-30th.

In the Magic's 2-1 week, which included wins against two likely playoff-bound teams in the Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Bobcats, Vučević averaged 22.7 points, an NBA-best 14.3 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block per game. He shot 58.5 percent from the floor and 85.7 percent from the foul line.

Vučević becomes the first Magic player to win East Player of the Week honors since Dwight Howard did so for his work from January 16th-22nd, 2012.

The other Eastern Conference Player of the Week nominees were Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Pierce, Bobcats center Al Jefferson, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, Miami Heat forward LeBron James, Toronto Raptors swingman DeMar DeRozan, and Washington Wizards point guard John Wall.

San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan earned Player of the Week honors out West.
