A couple of players were award as the NBA Players of the Month for October and November earlier on Monday, with the awards going to Milwaukee Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo in the East, and Los Angeles Clippers small forward Tobias Harris in the West.
Harris was a big part in the early success of the Clippers, who sit at 15-6 record to start the season. In the first two months’ he put up a solid 21.7 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.
The 26-year-old forward is shooting 51.6 percent from the floor, 42.9 percent from the 3-point line and 83.6 percent from the free throw line to start the year.
The Bucks are 15-7 on the season, with a lot of the credit going to Antetokounmpo, who has picked up from where he left off last season with a strong start to the year.
Thus far “The Greek Freak” is averaging 27.6 points, 13.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game for the Bucks. What is maybe even more impressive is the fact he’s shooting 57.8 percent from the field.
