THREE POINTS

Tight at the Top: As Week 7 begins, the top seven teams in the Western Conference are separated by only two games. Four of those teams did not make the playoffs last season: the West-leading Clippers, who have won seven of eight and visit Sacramento on Thursday (TNT); Memphis, which is already more than halfway to its 2017-18 win total; and Denver and the Los Angeles Lakers, who face each other on Tuesday (NBA TV).

Raptors vs. Warriors: NBA-leading Toronto hosts two-time defending champion Golden State on Thursday on TNT. The matchup marks the first time that Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard will square off in a regular- season game since the 2016-17 season opener. At 17-4, the Raptors are off to the best start in team history. The visit to Scotiabank Arena is the first of five consecutive road games for the Warriors, who hope to have Stephen Curry back from a groin injury during the trip.

Rookies Shining: Several rookies are thriving with increased roles. Since joining the starting lineup, Cleveland’s Collin Sexton is averaging 19.6 points in his last eight games. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has helped the Clippers to an 8-2 record since becoming a starter, averaging 12.5 points in those games. Sacramento’s Marvin Bagley III is averaging 16.0 points and 10.0 rebounds in 28.8 minutes in his last five games. And Indiana’s Aaron Holiday, in the wake of Victor Oladipo’s absence, is averaging 13.3 points and 5.0 rebounds in his last four games after not appearing in the previous nine games.


TRENDING TOPICS

New York Knicks: The Knicks have defeated Boston and Memphis on the road and New Orleans at home during their three-game winning streak.

Nikola Vucevic, Magic: Vucevic is averaging 25.8 points and 12.0 rebounds in his last six games.

Jaren Jackson Jr., Grizzlies: Another flourishing rookie, Jackson had 16 points, seven blocked shots, six rebounds and three assists against New York on Nov. 25, shooting 6-of-6 from the field and 4-of-4 from three-point range. He tied the team rookie record for blocks.

Dwight Powell, Mavericks: Powell received the October NBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by Kaiser Permanente in recognition of his efforts to support families battling cancer in the greater Dallas area.
