This NBA season has been dominated by many of the usual suspects.
But when you really break down who is scoring the most, you see a clear picture of the best shooters in the league.

NBA analyst Kirk Goldsberry did just that, analyzing who is leading the league based on specific parts of the court, or zones.
For example, Curry is the best shooter from the top of the three-point line, which isn’t shocking at all.
And Antetokounmpo is the most powerful player when it comes to under the bucket, as Durant dominates in the low post too.
Anunonby’s rise to this spot is no coincidence as he is having his best season yet, averaging 18.2 points, 6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists.
His three-point percentage is currently 34.9% and it seems like he is carving out a place for himself in that corner of the court, ready to post up a shot when the ball comes his way.
Of all the men listed on this chart, who has the best chance of making the NBA Finals this season?
Conventional wisdom says that Horford and his Celtics would be the right pick but most of these players shouldn’t be counted out.
