Top 6th men
The NBA's best off the bench this year
1) Jason Terry, Mavericks- The team's best player (dirk) commented a week or so ago claiming that Jason Terry is the closer for the team and the guy they go to in the clutch (15.8 ppg, 4.6 apg, 35% 3PT)
2) Glen Davis, Celtics- Has been the best big off the bench for any NBA team..has provided depth at both the 4 and the 5 and plays during the clutch times for the best team in the league (12.1 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 48% FG)
3) CJ Miles, Jazz- Miles has brought consistent offense off the bench for a very solid Utah team by providing depth at the 2 and the 3 (12.1 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 1.7 apg)
4) James Harden, Thunder- This crafty lefty with a veteran feel to his game has really turned it on in the month of december and is bringing solid O and D off OKC's bench (10.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 39% 3PT)
5) George Hill, Spurs- A tremendously solid backup gives the Spurs a nice trade piece if they feel Gary Neal is a capable enough #2 PG behind parker (11.3 ppg, 2.3 apg, 40% 3PT)
Jamal Crawford, Hawks (14.6 ppg, 3.4 apg, 35% 3PT)
Shawn Marion, Mavericks (10.8 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 50% FG)
Al Harrington, Nuggets (12.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 39% 3PT)
Shouldn't Mayo be in honorable mention? Since he is been relegated to 6th man, he seems to still be putting up decent scoring numbers.
Where's Shannon Brown? He at least deserves to be in Honorable Mention.
Probably redick is the best
It's Terry's to lose
@jas255, yeah Mayo's numbers are okay, but I feel he hasn't really gotten the hang of that role, he'll go for 17 one game and 6 the next, I don't feel he's very comfortable with that role and although a good player and IMO a guy who should be starter (Sam Young and X.Henry in order to bring Mayo off the bench for a spark??), I don't think he can really be in the mix for 6th man of the year talks at this point in the season.
