NLL Insider - POTW + ROTW Week 1!

by Nenjabin, updated on Thursday, November 16 2017, 07:39 pm EST

The votes are in and final, and here we announce the Players of the Week and Rookies of the Week for Week 1!!


East POTW – Jonas Valanciunas

Week 1 saw an unlikely leader of the league in the Orlando Magic posting a 4-0 week and their court leader was none other than the Big V, Jonas Valanciunas who wins Player of the Week. He averaged 30 points, 13 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks, shot 52% and 87% from the line, and had a double figure +/- rating of +10. Domination, thy name is Val!


West POTW – Nikola Vucevic

The Lakers have declared rebuild-dom…but they came out and went 3-1 in week 1, lead by their big man Nikola Vucevic who claimed Player of the Week honours. He dropped 32.8 points, 13.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 3 steals and 2.3 blocks while shooting 59% from the field! How crazy is that statline! Vuc is the #1 option on this Lakers team and he could produce like this all year given the roster situation. Just in the Nik of time for the Lakers.


West ROTW – Lonzo Ball

Another rebuilder, the Mavs went 3-1 in week 1 and their rookie PG was a large reason. He dropped 28 in one game on his way to 16.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 9.8 assists, 1 steal on 49% shooting, 39% from deep. He did however commit 6.5 turnovers a game too…but you take the good with the bad. He might see some shooting percentage dips as the season progresses, but ride him while he’s hot. You could say, he has the Lonzo on a string!


East ROTW – Lauri Markkanen

Markkanen divided the drafting world last June, but he opened the season as a starter and claimed the best rookie of the East in doing so next to his new found hero starter Jonas. He averaged 13.8 points, 7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.5 blocks on 51% shooting, 50% from deep and a perfect 10/10 from the line. He’s sure to have his rookie ups and downs, as they all do, but for now he’s locked a loaded behind his sweet shooting as the perfect compliment to the inside monster Val. I dub thee, Lauri Marksman.



Congratulations to the winners in Week 1, and for the month of December, and may the odds be forever in your favour!
