But that didn't stop Kidd-Gilchrist at all he just kept on moving without losing significant speed or balance and slid past O.J. The numbers are already beginning to reveal as much: through the first five games, Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 14.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 1.9 steals per 36 minutes, and appears well on his way to inclusion on the All-Rookie First Team. If a play looks over or the ball seems beyond his reach, he's liable to find a way to succeed anyway. These have been an impressive first five games for the high-energy 19-year-old – a stretch culminating in a 25-point, 12-rebound, two-block, and one-steal performance in a win over the Mavericks on Saturday night.
