Through a quarter of the NBA regular season, the race to win the Sixth Man of the Year award has become a two-man race, but it's strange that the two players are both on the Los Angeles Clippers. Proving just how deep this team is, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell are the clear top two in the odds to win the award, at -210 and +300, respectively, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
After winning the award the past two seasons, Williams has improved his stats, with his eyes set on a three-peat. In 31 minutes off the bench, Williams is averaging 19.9 points and career-highs in both rebounds (3.2) and assists per game (6.2).
The additions of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have clearly not slowed Williams down at all, he's been crucial in leading the second unit while either one of the two stars rests.
While Williams is the clear favorite, the odds have narrowed since the last update between him and Harrell. The Clippers' big man is also enjoying a fantastic season, averaging career-highs in minutes (29.3), points (18.7), rebounds (7.7) and assists (2.1), while also adding 1.2 blocks per game off the bench. With just a 6-foot-7-inch frame, Harrell's ability to perform at the top level was initially questioned, but clearly he has found all the answers.
Rounding out the top five is Spencer Dinwiddie (+1100), Goran Dragic (+1800), and both Bogdan Bogdanovic and Terrence Ross at +2000.
