The Detroit Pistons point guard averaged an impressive 29.3 points on 46 percent shooting from the field to go with 6.3 rebounds and 7.7 assists in three games to win the award. He is just one of seven players
The Los Angeles Lakers played the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, and that meant another ugly-shooting performance was on deck for Kobe Bryant. The shooting guard has been historically bad for someone who has taken at least 16 shots from the field heading into the game, averaging an unfathomable 33.1 percent shooting from the field in his first 10 games.
