NBA Stats 2018: Top 5 scorers in the league right now

These five players are scoring the most, thanks to some top notch performances on the court.

1

Blake Griffin - Detroit Pistons

It's not surprising that the Pistons' Blake Griffin is the early season scoring leader. He put up a 50-point performance in an overtime win against the Sixers. Griffin is currently averaging 36.3 points per game to lead the league.

2

Stephen Curry - Golden State Warriors

The two-time NBA MVP has been the early leader for the champions. Curry's averaging 34.6 points a game and shooting 55 percent overall. He's also got that deadly three-point rate of 52.4 percent. Talk about a shooter!

3

Zach LaVine - Chicago Bulls

Zach LaVine is not a name many people might have expected to pop up on the NBA scoring leaders. LaVine has mostly been known for his dunking skills, but now he's leading Chicago to new heights. The Bulls star is averaging 32.3, so far, in the new season, as he looks to stay healthy.

4

Kemba Walker - Charlotte Hornets

Walker had back-to-back games of 41 points and 39 points, which helped him earn an Eastern Conference Player of the Week Award. He's shooting 47.3 percent from the field and averaging 31 points per game for the 2-3 Hornets.

5

Anthony Davis - New Orleans Pelicans

Several of the players at this top five list may find themselves among NBA MVP contenders later in the season. Davis is certainly one right now. The big man is averaging 30.3 points, 13 boards, and 3.3 blocked shots per game, as the Pelicans are a perfect 3-0 so far.
