Damian Lillard scored 12 points and handed out nine assists vs. the Kings on Saturday, and he's averaging 8.8 assists per game in December.
Even Lillard himself is surprised by how easily his skills have translated to the NBA. "Everything is going kind of smoother than I thought it would," Lillard said. "I felt I was going to be productive, I just didn't know how productive." With Anthony Davis (ankle) out for 11 games and counting, there's no obvious competition for Rookie of the Year.
