Individual Scoring Down in 2010-2011, Sharing Up?


Last season the NBA had at least 4 players scoring 27 or more points per game.  Durant topped the list at 31 points per game.  Durant leads the league in per game scoring again this season, but his scoring is down 4 points per game to 27.  This year’s scoring leader would barely have cracked last year’s top 5.  Dwayne Wade had 26.6 points per game for fifth place last season.

In addition, last season there were 58 players scoring at least 10 points per game.  This season there have been only 53.  It seems players are spreading the wealth more this season.  Last season, only 17 players finished the season scoring at least 20 points per game.  Thus far in 2010-2011, there are 20 players scoring at least 20 per game.

Good to see the NBA getting into the holiday spirit.
