Michael Carter-Williams, Philadelphia 76ers

Despite not playing the last 3 games, MCW's number still have yet to be challenged. He still leads all rookies in points (17.7), rebounds (5.8), assists (7.3) and steals (3.1). He also has the highest PER at 20.1.

Victor Oladipo, Orlando Magic

Oladipo seems to have slowed down since his triple double, as in the last 3 games he has averaged only 9.3 points (below his season average of 13.4) and 1.7 assists (below his average of 3.5).

Trey Burke, Utah Jazz

Burke is headed the opposite direction. In the last 3 games, he has averaged 15 points (he averages 12.9 on the season), 7 assists (up from 4.2), 6 rebounds (up from 3.8) and 1.3 steals (up from 0.8). He was 3 assists way from his first career triple double on Saturday.

Ben McLemore, Sacramento Kings

The one consistent about McLemore is his inconsistency. This week he scored a career high 20 points against the Lakers, and was able to follow it up with 15 against Utah. He then went on to score 3 and 4 in the next two games. His averages currently sit at 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

Tim Hardaway Jr., New York Knicks

Hardaway makes his first appearance on the list, averaging 8.1 points on 46.5% shooting and 41.8% from downtown. The downside is that Hardaway doesn't seem do to much besides score, as he is only averaging 1.0 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.2 blocks.
