It was the last full week of the NBA regular season. It was a week where teams were eliminated from the playoffs and where a few teams clinched like Portland. In the West all the matchups are decided, but in the East no match ups are decided yet. It was also a week full of amazing individual performances. Damian Lillard had 59 points, and Russell Westbrook had 50 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists in a win at Denver. The race for the MVP will go down to the wire. Here are the top seven performers of the week in the NBA!

The USA Men’s Basketball Team routed Venezuela 113-69 in a Monday blowout. Even with the slow start from Team USA, they used their overall dominance in the second half to prevail. Coming off a sheer win against China, USA kept it coming against Venezuela. Kobe Bryant tweeted “@usabasketball 2 deep 2 strong”, and I’ll say that I’d have to agree with that.

Team USA officially began its quest for their third straight Olympic Gold Medal on Saturday with a dominating 119-62 victory over China. No one expected the game to even be close and it never was. The United States took care of business and handled the team from China just as they had in the two exhibition games played between the teams a few weeks back. This game was as non-eventful as the other two with the U.S. being in control essentially from start to finish, leading for 37 minutes and 11 seconds of the possible 40.

The 2016 NBA draft seemingly began before Thursday June 23rd at 7:30pm. A number of trades and “leaks” got the party started early with reports indicating that Ben Simmons received a “promise” by the Philadelphia 76ers days before the NBA draft. It was followed by a 3 team trade in which the Utah Jazz gave up their 12th pick in the draft sending it to the Atlanta Hawks. In return they received George Hill from the Indiana Pacers while the Hawks sent Jeff Teague to Indiana. That same day the Chicago Bulls traded Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks for Jerian Grant, Jose Calderon, and Robin Lopez. And “sources” revealed that the Lakers, to know one’s surprise would be selecting Brandon Ingram from Duke University. Things died down briefly, then the real fun began. To select the five biggest winners of this year’s NBA draft I looked at multiple factors.
