Nash, Bosh earn NBA honors for January

New York, NY (Sports Network) – The Toronto Raptors’ Chris Bosh and
Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns were named Players of the Month in their
respective conferences for the month of January.

Bosh averaged 25.4 points and 9.1 rebounds last month to help the Raptors to a
10-5 record. Bosh, who was named a starter for the Eastern Conference All-
Star Game, led the team in scoring 13 times and recorded three games with 14
or more rebounds. He also set a career-high with six blocks in a 90-77 win
over Milwaukee.

Nash, meanwhile, averaged a league-high 13 assists and added 18 points in
January. He set a new career-best with 21 assists in a win over
Cleveland and racked up 208 assists on the month, the highest total
since John Stocktons 208 in March, 1995.

The Suns had a 15-1 record over that span, tying the best January record in
NBA history.
