3. Moses Moody
Entering the NBA, Moses Moody appeared to have the perfect skill set to become an instant impact player on a competitive team.
Although, he joined a team that was a bit more than competitive. The rookie began his career on one of the best teams in the league, shrinking the margin for error and making it more difficult for him to find his balance.
Fast forward to the mid-point of the season and Moody is hitting his stride.
He started in back-to-back games to fill in for Klay Thompson, scoring 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting in Houston before putting up a career-high 20 points on 6-of-10 3-point shooting in a comeback victory over San Antonio.
It was Moody who fought for extra possessions all night long, racking up 7 rebounds and helping to make the game-winning play.
We can expect Moody’s role to be reduced again once Klay ramps up to full speed but Moody’s all-around talent has been on display in the meantime.
