Spurs point guard Tony Parker grabbed another accolade Thursday when he was named Western Conference Player of the Month for the first time in his 11-plus seasons.
He is the first Spurs' player to earn that honor since Tim Duncan in April 2002, Parker's rookie season.
Parker averaged 21.9 points, 7.9 assists and 1.13 steals, leading the Spurs to a 12-3 record that matched Denver for the NBA's top mark in January.
He tallied five double-doubles and scored at least 20 points in 12 of 15 games, topping 30 points twice.
With Duncan out for the final four games of January, Parker capped the month averaging 25 points, 9.3 assists and shooting 67.2 percent (41 of 61) in guiding the Spurs to four victories.
Miami's LeBron James was tabbed the Eastern Conference Player of the Month.
