The Hawks Josh Smith took home the East's "Player of the Week" honors (Blake Griffin won for the Western Conference) by putting up 21 points and 12 rebounds per game, while also leading Atlanta to a 3-0 record.  Rajon Rondo was nominated for the award after averaging 13.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 12 assists over 3 games, as well as posting one historic triple double.  It's the second time this season the C's point guard has been beaten out by a Hawk; Rondo also received a nomination two weeks ago, but Al Horford was selected instead.
