Doncic continues to light up the League with his subliminal skills, and he is one of the most elite players to play the game. He has helped Mavericks remain in the Playoffs hunt and he will look to build further on the current momentum. He is also an excellent pick-up as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
Dame Dolla has mounted an MVP-styled campaign and the Trailblazers have also benefitted from his exploits. He has continued to be one of the more prolific scorers and ranks second in terms of three-pointers. He has been in such heroic form that he is averaging 33.5 PPG during this month, including a 50 points performance.
Porzingis has enabled the Mavs to be one of the top 8 squads in West since he has come back. He has provided Doncic with support as the secondary scorer and his contributions in terms of rebounding have been praiseworthy. He is averaging 10.5 RPG and 1.8 BPG in March.
Kanter has been in amazing form since he has started for the Trailblazers. He gives elite rebounding and chips in with decent offense too. He is averaging 13.8 PPG and 12.1 RPG this month.
Gary Trent Jr.: PPG: 15.2 RPG: 2.2 TPG: 0.8 PFP: 24
Gary is having a breakout season and his squad has benefitted from his surge. He has given Trailblazers a consistent scoring option at the guard position.
Tim Hardaway Jr.: PPG: 16.3 RPG: 3.2 TPG: 0.9 PFP: 25
Hardaway produces great offense but his shifting role has not provided him stability. He has had to shuffle between starting and bench roles which have affected his efficiency a little.
Carmelo Anthony: PPG: 14.1 RPG: 3.3 TPG: 1.1 PFP: 26
The veteran Forward is still an effective offensive option and has come up big late in games for Portland. He has been in superb form this month, averaging 18.7 PPG and 3.7 APG.
Robert Covington: PPG: 8.5 RPG: 6.6 SPG: 1.6 BPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.2
Josh Richardson: PPG: 13.3 RPG: 3.2 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 27
