For the 15th time in his career and first time as a member of the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant has been named Player of the Month.

Durant has led the Nets to a 15-6 record over October and November and they sit atop the Eastern Conference standings. He's averaging a league-leading 28.6 points per game on 53.9 percent shooting from the field, 38.9 percent from three-point range, and 86.3 percent from the foul line. Durant is also averaging 7.5 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game.

Durant has scored 30 or more points in a game eight times this season (tied for second-most in the NBA) and 20 or more points in 19 of his 20 games played (tied for the league lead).

It's his first time winning the Player of the Month since January of 2017 when he was a member of the Golden State Warriors. He's the fifth Net to win the award in franchise history, joining Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin, Vince Carter, and James Harden.

Former teammate Stephen Curry of the Warriors was named the NBA Western Conference Player of the Month after leading them to an 18-3 record and averaging 27.8 points per game.
