It has been an incredible start to the season with many different NBA stars getting off to hot starts. There has been a high volume of scoring across the league. In light of that, another impressive record has been broken.
DeMar DeRozan has led the charge notching 30 or more points 10 times in the first 11 games of the season, which put him atop of the league in scoring at 33.3 points per game. Russell Westbrook isn’t far off currently the second-leading scorer averaging 32.0 points while averaging a near triple-double in his first campaign without Kevin Durant by his side. Anthony Davis and James Harden are each having career-best starts to the season. Davis has become the first player in Pelicans history to score 40 points in back-to-back games. Harden is leading the league in assists (12.6) and is the first player in league history to record four 30-point and 15-assist games in the first seven contest to begin a season.
There is plenty offensive firepower around the league and doesn’t appear that this trend will stop anytime soon. There could be many more historic feats set in the coming weeks with all of these aforementioned players continuing to hover around averaging 30 points per game. The NBA could be in store for record-breaking seasons for many of its players.
