This year’s youngest NBA All Star is now stating his case to also take the title of the league’s Most Improved Player, now that the last stretch of the season is underway.
The New Orleans Pelicans sophomore forward Anthony Davis has stepped up his game both offensively and defensively.
The University of Kentucky product leads the league in blocked shots per game, averaging 3.1. Davis has recorded three games with 8 or more blocked shots; in the entire league, there have only been six such games this season.
Offensively, Davis is lighting up the scoreboard compared to last season.
