Players to watch out for:
Joel Embiid – The big Cameroonian is leading the charge for Philadelphia 76ers this season. He is an All-Star starter and why not, his numbers speak for his growing stature and importance to his team. The 24-year-old is dropping 27.2 points per game at 25.5 efficiency rate.
Jimmy Butler – Los Angeles Lakers were after him during the transfer season, which only shows how big a player he is. The former Minnesota Timberwolves star is averaging 19.5 points per game.
Los Angeles Lakers:
LeBron James – The King was at his marauding best against the team he has terrorized all his life, the Boston Celtics. The 34-year-old scored a triple-double and led his team to a magnificent 129-128 buzzer-beater win over the Greens. His season average is 27.0 points per game, and he is also racking up team-high 8.5 rebounds per game as well.
Kyle Kuzma – Behind at the 2nd place is Kyle Kuzma. The 23-year-old is racking up 18.7 points per game this season. He was quite phenomenal in the period when LeBron was out of the team due to a groin injury.
