2. Chet Holmgren
Last week's rank: 2
Chet Holmgren has continued to be a vital piece of his team's success and has once again lit up the scoreboard with blocks and points, helping him remain at the No. 2 spot.
Holmgren has been on a tear all season long and it's been no different this past week. The second-year rookie has continued to dominate on both ends of the floor, and even had a 30-point performance this week.
In Monday night's victory over the Washington Wizards, Holmgren dominated with 31 points and five assists. He made Wizards center Daniel Gafford look like a little kid at times with his freakish height and athleticism.
Following up the game vs the Wizards, Holmgren dominated the Miami Heat. He finished with 23 points and nine rebounds in the eight-point victory.
Despite not playing as well as in previous weeks, the Thunder have managed to still keep a positive record in the last two weeks. They've gone 3-2 since their landmark win over the Celtics and are currently riding a three-game winning streak.
Holmgren has been a huge part of their success this season and has stayed healthy. Last season, Holmgren missed his entire rookie year with an Achilles tear, and this gave him the injury-prone title. Holmgren has not only looked incredible, but he hasn't missed any large periods of time with an injury.
The Thunder will look to continue their winning streak next week as they play both LA teams.
