After the weekly awards, it’s the big comeback of the monthly awards and it starts with the youngsters. Honor to Bennedict Mathurin and Jalen Williams, elected NBA Rookies of the Month.

With the season resuming around October 20, the League is logically waiting for the start of December to present its first award after a whole month of competition. Place rookies to begin hostilities and the NBA has decided to reward Bennedict Mathurin and Jalen Williams.

With nearly 19 points on average off the bench (including a very clean 40% from afar), Bennedict Mathurin explodes everything in his time at Indiana, establishing himself as one of the two current favorites for the Rookie title. of the year. We may be a little surprised by the absence of his rival Paolo Banchero in the East (22 points on average with Orlando), who may be paying for the few games missed due to injury. West side, the NBA has decided to highlight the first promising steps of Jalen Williams with OKC (10.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 52% shooting), preferred to Jabari Smith Jr. or even Keegan Murray. The young talent of the Thunder has also highlighted last night against San Antonio. Despite Chet Holmgren’s injury, the youth of the Thunder still managed to squat the awards.

Bennedict Mathurin and Jalen Williams first winners of the title of Rookies of the month. Something tells us a boy in Orlando is going to try to change that next month.
