If you’ve been following basketball closely, you’ll know the following players have been playing out of their minds.  If not, it’s time to play catch up.  Here are some of the hottest players in the league.

Baron Davis
 - The Baron has averaged 28.25 points, 8.25 assists, 6.75 rebounds, 1.75 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 2.5 three-pointers per game over his past four games.  He’s shot 49.5% from the floor and 68.9% from the line.

Anthony Parker - Anthony has been doing a little bit of everything over the past five games.  He’s averaging 19.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 2.0 three-pointers per game while shooting 56.3% from the floor and 82.4% from the line.

Ron Artest - Testy has been impressive since missing a pair of games.  In his last four games he’s averaging 21.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 4.8 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers per game.  He’s shot 50.8% from the floor and 76.5% from the line.

Caron Butler - OK, he hasn’t really been on fire, I’m just glad to report he’s back following a 16 game absence.  In his two games since his return he’s averaging 17.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.5 steals while shooting 34.4% from the floor and 86.7% from the line.  Not too bad considering the time off.

LaMarcus Aldridge -
  Maybe the excitement of Greg Oden practicing has put a bounce in LaMarcus’ step just knowing life will be easier next year with the Big Man makes his pro debut.  Whatever it is LaMarcus has turned up his penchant for scoring.  In his last six games he’s averaging 23.7 points, 6.5 rebounds (you need to do better than that big fella), 0.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks.  He’s shot 57.9% from the floor and 69.2% from the line.
