(Times staff / ERIC HARTLINE)

The 76ers’ Thaddeus Young has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Young averaged a conference-leading 25 points per game on 56.6 percent shooting, which was ninth-best in the East, in helping the Sixers to a 3-0 mark. He tied for the league lead with 3.67 steals per game.

“This is the best stretch I recall having since I’ve been in the league,” said Young, a seven-year vet, following the Sixers’ morning shootaround.

More on Young’s honor to come later.
