#6: Cade Cunningham’s All-Star stretch 

Cade Cunningham was one of the only bright spots this season even though he only played in 62 games. Unfortunately, he was having his best stretch of the season just before injuring his knee, but it did give us a glimpse of what he can be in the NBA. 

In a 10-game stretch between December 16th and January 5th, Cade Cunningham looked like an All-NBA player, averaging 28.7 points, 8.1 assists and 4.4 rebounds while shooting 53.2 percent from the floor and 38 percent from long range. Cade scored over 40 points twice in that stretch and added four more games of at least 30 points. 

Of course, he was injured just after and had to miss eight games in a row, which killed his momentum as he tried to work back to that level. Cade did have some big games after returning but he never quite got back to where he was, which is a shame, as that was one of the best stretches of basketball a Pistons player has had in a long time, and had he not gotten injured, may have pushed Cunningham into the Most Improved Player conversation.
