The Rebounds (Best) & Blocks (Worst) of the NBA right at the All Star Break 2014-2015 NBA season, lets take a look below at the action from this week, thanks to NBA.com & ESPN.com for help in this article:
- James Harden 1st Half, MVP Worthy Part #1- James Harden is the NBA’s Leading Scorer at 27.4 points a game, in February Harden is averaging 30.8 points, 6.4 rebounds & 6.4 assists per game. Harden has the Rockets with the third best record in the very tough Western Conference & right now my pick for NBA MVP.
- Stephen Curry 1st Half, MVP Worthy Part #1- Stephen Curry is on the team with the best record in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors at 42-9, but Curry leads the NBA with 2.16 steals per game & 5th in assists at 7.9 points per games. Curry has averaged 27.8 points per game in February & my pick to be NBA All Star MVP Sunday at MSG.
- Atlanta Hawks most surprising team in the NBA’s 1st Half- The Hawks have the best record in the Eastern Conference at 43-11, the Hawks have four All Stars(Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Al Horford & Kyle Korver), but the Hawks are Top ten in three top NBA Team Rankings- 103.4 Points per Game(6th), 25.7 Assists per Game(2nd) & 96.8 Points Allowed(4th). I would tell folks in the Hawks stay health, believe in the ATL Red Birds everybody.
