#2 Zion Williamson reaches 2000 points
In the past ten games, Zion Williamson has been on a scoring tear. The 20-year old is only one of two players since Michael Jordan to reach 2000 points in under 80 games at age 21 or younger. In recent weeks there have been many news stories about how good this young gun basketball player.
Zion Williamson scored 33 points last night, becoming the 12th player in NBA history to reach 2,000 points before his 80th career game.
He’s the ONLY player in that group to shoot at least 60% from the field. In fact, no one else even eclipsed 53% through their first 79 games. pic.twitter.com/ZplVa9nsGT

In his rookie campaign last year, Zion shot at 58.3% and averaging 22 point per game while Williamson is doing this with ease shooting over 60%.
#3 Russell Westbrook’s triple-double dominance
With his recent performances, it’s no wonder that the Wizard guard is leading all of NBA with 28 triple-doubles this year. In fact he has done so in 5 out 6 seasons since 2014!

Even more impressive, however, was the fact that Westbrook broke a long-standing franchise record in less than a season last month. In a 132-124 win over Indiana at the end of March, Westbrook recorded his 16th triple-double of the season, simultaneously becoming the Washington Wizards’ all-time leader in triple-doubles.
#4 Dallas Mavericks monster first-half vs LA Clippers
The LA Clippers are riding high right now, but they have been electric since the All-Star break. In their third game of this season alone, these guys set a new record for themselves that will never be broken!

As the Mavs finished with a victory at 124-73, they are guaranteed to face off against their opponents from last year in round 1 of this season’s playoffs. The Clippers will be looking for revenge after falling short once again last time around and not giving up until it was too late!
#5 Anthony Edwards’ 100+ point three-game span
After a slow adjustment to league life, Anthony Edwards’ form has exploded and he is now one of the most lethal offensive players in this year’s draft. He averages 18 points per night while playing for his new team – all thanks to an unmatched potential that can’t be ignored!
My last 2 favorite players who weren’t on the Nets both ended up becoming Nets (D-Lo, Harden)
I just decided on who my new favorite non-Net is since Harden is a Net now.

Minnesota fans will be very excited to see how Edwards can progress and help their franchise return to the playoffs in a few years. As for other teams around the league? In any case, everyone is excited for what he could bring in terms of both points and excitement when playing at home turf later this season – especially against Western Conference foes like Dallas Stars or San Jose Sharks where highlight reel plays are guaranteed each game thanks to him
