The NBA regular season is winding down and the playoff picture is starting to take shape. Who’s hot and who’s not in the NBA?
Kyrie Irving is one of the hottest players in the NBA right now. He’s been averaging over 20 points per game and is one of the main reasons why the Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the best teams in the league. Kyrie is also a very talented young player who is still improving.
Leads the NBA in scoring
Kyrie Irving is currently leading the NBA in scoring, averaging 28.5 points per game. The superstar point guard has been on a tear lately, scoring 30 or more points in four of his last five games.
The Brooklyn Nets have been one of the hottest teams in the NBA as of late, thanks in large part to Irving’s stellar play. With Irving leading the way, the Nets have won eight of their last 10 games and are currently sitting in sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
