NBA 2017 MVP race – part 5

(Originally posted on Monday, 26 December 2016)

All the data I used I found on this site:
http://www.basketball-reference.com/

On 25 December 2016 the Golden State Warriors recorded their 5th loss of the season and now there are no teams with less the 5 losses.

With the assumptions described in this post:
http://glen-cook-fan-site.blogspot.com/2016/11/nba-2017-mvp-race-part-1.html ,
according to the data from the games up to 25 December 2016 the current NBA 2017 MVP race list is this:
1. Kevin Durant: 2536.43      (projected team wins: 69)
2. James Harden: 2473.63      (projected team wins: 58)
3. Russell Westbrook: 2351.28      (projected team wins: 50)
4. LeBron James: 2237.93      (projected team wins: 65)
5. Stephen Curry: 2103.24      (projected team wins: 69)
6. Kawhi Leonard: 2102.77      (projected team wins: 66)
7. DeMar DeRozan: 1923.08      (projected team wins: 59)
8. Kyle Lowry: 1796.12      (projected team wins: 59)
9. Kevin Love: 1772.01      (projected team wins: 65)
10. Kyrie Irving: 1697.82      (projected team wins: 65)

The top 6 players on the list are exactly the same as previously. Kevin Durant increased his lead, but only very slightly.
