【Guide】News on February 28, The NBA officially announced the latest MVP competition list, James Harden overwhelmed
LeBron James and Stephen Curry rose to the top of the list.
James ranked second, and Curry fell to third.
Russell Westbrook, who had a crazy performance, came in fourth, and Jeff Teague was fifth.
01 James Harden (2-last week’s ranking, the same below)
Most of the stars on this week’s competition list have ups and downs, but James Harden is an exception. His scoring is as violent as ever.
In the past 10 games, Harden has averaged a terrible 27.8 points per game and continues to lead the league in scoring.
At the same time, Harden also averaged 7.3 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game.
Harden is now the absolute boss and core of the Rockets. He is familiar with the team’s tactics and successfully led the Rockets to complete a counterattack in the absence of Dwight Howard.
In the game against the Timberwolves, Harden had a triple-double, scoring 31 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
02 LeBron James (3)
All the MVP candidates this week played very representative games, which made people shine, but LeBron James is undoubtedly the most shining.
In the world-renowned game between the Cavaliers and the Warriors, James showed his power, scoring a season-high 42 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists, completely dominating the game.
Under the leadership of James, the Cavaliers have achieved a record of 18 wins and 2 losses since mid-January, rising to third place in the Eastern Conference and threatening the Raptors’ second position in the Eastern Conference.
The Cavaliers were still a team with the No. 1 pick last season, and this season has become so strong for only one reason, and that is LeBron James.
03 Stephen Curry (1)
Curry has been at the top of the list for many weeks this season, but he is now under great threat.
In the game where the Warriors were reversed by the Pacers, Curry was sidelined due to an ankle injury. Because of his serious ankle injury history, many people broke out in a cold sweat.
In the Warriors’ victory over the Wizards, Curry came back and beat John Wall, contributing 32 points and 8 assists without making any mistakes.
However, in the key battle between the Warriors and the Cavaliers, Curry performed abnormally. He only made 5 of 17 shots in the game, allowing James to completely steal the limelight.
The Warriors will face the Raptors next, and Curry will play against All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry. Will he come back?
04 Russell Westbrook (5)
Wei Shao is one of the hottest players in the league right now. He had a triple-double against the Suns, scoring 39 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists. This was his third triple-double this month.
Eric Bledsoe of the Suns is not to be outdone. He is one of the few players in the league who dares to challenge Wei Shao and dare to compete with Wei Shao for speed and explosive power.
For this reason, the Thunder narrowly lost to the Suns in overtime.
However, before that, Wei Shao had led the Thunder to win seven consecutive victories and reached the top eight in the Western Conference.
In the context of Durant’s absence, Wei Shao played the leading role of this team.
05 Jeff Teague (4)
The Eagles only scored 1 win and 3 losses in the 4 games before and after the All-Star break. People began to worry that they would be beaten back to their original shape and fell to the mortal world.
However, under the leadership of Teague and others, the Eagles quickly got back on track. They have won two consecutive victories and firmly occupy the first place in the Eastern Conference.
The Eagles are currently 8 games ahead of the second-ranked Raptors in the Eastern Conference. As long as there is no accident, they will definitely be the first in the Eastern Conference this season.
Teague has been mediocre in the Hawks’ recent two-game winning streak, but that was the result of team sacrifice.
For Teague, victory is more important than anything else.
Players ranked 6-10 are LaMarcus Aldridge of the Blazers, Klay Thompson of the Warriors, Marc Gasol of the Grizzlies, Damian Lillard of the Blazers,
Raptors’ Kyle Lowry; Hawks’ Al Horford, Wizards’ John Wall, Pelicans’ Anthony Davis, Clippers’ Chris Paul and Bulls’ 11-15 players
