1. Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers) – 1 GP, 39.0 Pts, 10.0 Reb, 6.0 Ast

The Portland Trail Blazers remain outside the play-in, but it hasn’t been due to a lack of effort from Damian Lillard. The six-time All-NBA point guard is averaging 35.0 points per game in 2023, falling four assists short of a triple-double in his latest effort before the All-Star Game.

2. Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks) – 1 GP, 37.0 Pts, 4.0 Reb, 9.0 Ast

Luka Doncic isn’t letting the arrival of Kyrie Irving impact his production in the Dallas Mavericks backcourt. Doncic has maintained his season-long scoring average, scoring 32.3 points per game in three contests with Irving. His 37-point effort against the Denver Nuggets in his most recent outing is included.

3. De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings) – 1 GP, 35.0 Pts, 4.0 Reb, 4.0 Ast

The MVP chants are unrelenting at Golden 1 Center as De’Aaron Fox continues his elite play. Like many teams, the Kings only played one game over the past seven days, but it was another top-tier performance from Fox, who dropped 35 points, four rebounds, and four assists.

4. LaMelo Ball (Charlotte Hornets) – 1 GP, 25.0 Pts, 12.0 Reb, 10.0 Ast

The Charlotte Hornets’ playoff aspirations are all but extinguished, but that’s not stopping LaMelo Ball from putting his best foot forward. The 21-year-old is setting a new benchmark in scoring, averaging 23.3 points per game while falling just short of the mark in rebounds and assists.

5. Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks) – 2 GP, 27.5 Pts, 5.5 Reb, 8.0 Ast

Not to diminish the Philadelphia 76ers or Cleveland Cavaliers, but the Eastern Conference is shaping up to be a two-horse race. The Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks appear steps ahead of the competition and could be racing toward an ECF battle. The Bucks will need Jrue Holiday to be at his best to overcome the top seed, but that’s exactly what we’ve been getting from him recently.

6. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder) – 1 GP. 29.0 Pts, 2.0 Reb, 6.0 Ast

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander made his first All-Star appearance this weekend, playing on Team Giannis in Salt Lake City. SGA has sustained his 30-point scoring average throughout the campaign, recording 29 points in a 133-96 win over the Houston Rockets before the break.

7. Jordan Poole (Golden State Warriors) – 1 GP, 28.0 Pts, 2.0 Reb, 6.0 Ast

A lower-leg injury to Stephen Curry has thrust Jordan Poole back into the spotlight in the Golden State Warriors’ backcourt, and the 23-year-old hasn’t disappointed. Poole is averaging 25.1 points per game as a starter after dropping 28 on the LA Clippers last time out.

8. Darius Garland (Cleveland Cavaliers) – 1 GP, 27.0 Pts, 2.0 Reb, 6.0 Ast

Darius Garland continues to play a prominent role in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ resurgence. The former All-Star leads the Cavs’ in assists while ranking second in scoring behind Donovan Mitchell.

9. Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns) – 2 GP, 25.5 Pts, 4.0 Reb, 5.5 Ast

Now that he’s healthy, this could be the first of many appearances on the top point guards list for Devin Booker. Booker has played four games since returning from a groin injury, recording 91 points in those contests. Included in that were 51 points in his final two games before the All-Star festivities.

10. CJ McCollum (New Orleans Pelicans) – 1 GP, 22.0 Pts, 6.0 Reb, 9.0 Ast

New Orleans Pelicans point guard CJ McCollum rounds out the top ten. The former Most Improve Player put together another complete effort against the Los Angeles Lakers, coming close to a triple-double with his 22 points, six rebounds, and nine assists. The Pelicans continue to hover around the .500 mark, which is good enough for a Western Conference postseason berth.
