NBA Top 5: points per game leaders this season

5. Luka Doncic

Luka has been dominating in every category statistically this season as he is fifth in points per game with 29.1 PPG. He is having a lot of big games this season including a lot of 40 point games and a few triple-doubles. In his most recent game, he dropped 44 points in a loss but helped the Mavericks stay in the game. He is the reason the Mavericks are having some success as Luka is the heart and soul of the Mavericks and really guides them to victory. Luke has proven that he will be a top tier player in the future, and you can already argue that he is a top player in the league as he is also second in assists per game this season.

4. Damian Lillard

Damian has been showing the point guards around the league what is up. This season, he is averaging 29.2 points per game and many assists to go along with it. He has crazy range, and when he is in his “Dame Time” mentality, there is no stopping him. He will pull up from the logo and that’s what makes him dangerous. Players have to guard up on him so it creates open holes to the rim where he will speed through and dunk it on anyone. He is able to make any play he wants offensively which makes him a really good scorer. He will obtain many more high point games in the future and possibly some playoff wins.

3. Joel Embiid

Joel is averaging 29.6 points per game this season, and it’s been a while since we have seen a center dominate so hard on the points category. Nowadays, guards and forwards dominate offensively, but Joel Embiid is changing the NBA for centers, proving that you can score many points in this era of the NBA. He is also able to shoot the three ball really well for a center, at a straight-up 40%. He is also averaging above 10 rebounds per game and is playing on one of the best teams this year in the 76ers. Embiid keeps everyone in touch on his team and is a really good leader on the team along with Ben Simmons. In my opinion, Joel is the best center in the league and can prove to everyone else he is if he brings a championship to Philadelphia.

2. Stephen Curry

Curry has always been a good scorer and has created new ways to score the ball. He is also the greatest three point shooter and averages most three-point shots made per game this season. Curry is averaging just under 30 points per game at 29.9 as he has had many crazy high point games including his 62 point career high game early in the season. He has also had many highlight plays that the world has seen on ESPN. He recently had a 40 point win against the Magic and is the reason the Warriors are finding success this season with a 14-13 record. His three ball has also been a big part of his dominance in many games as he is very loose and will dribble around you without you noticing.

1. Bradley Beal

Bradley is averaging 32.9 points per game this season, leading anyone by 3 points which is actually a lot statistically speaking. Although the Wizards are not doing so well this season, Beal has helped them win some games and kept them in games. He is a shooting guard that can get to the hoop and score or pull up in the mid-range. He is very inconsistent when it comes to three point shooting, although he can have some crazy pop off games. Beal is definitely still a danger when it comes to three point shooting, though. He is also playing alongside Russel Westbrook, which has proven difficult as the two all stars can’t find light during games as they don’t have many good role players to help them dominate. Beal deserves to be in first as he is working so hard this year and had proven his dominance in the league.
