3. Harrison Barnes

Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes really emerged as a bright young stud in Golden State’s first round playoff series against the Nuggets.

After averaging under 10 points per game and right around four rebounds per game in the regular season, Barnes really stepped it up against Denver. So far in the postseason, he has averaged right around 16 points per game with 6 rebounds per game. He scored a career-high 24 points in the Warriors’ Game 2 victory in the Pepsi Center.

The big question now is if Barnes can keep up his production. His minutes have increased due to the absence of David Lee, and hopefully the Warriors will be able to get a lot more production from him during these playoffs because they are very poised to make a run this year.
