Van Vleet has been great. A double-double in one game and a career-high in another.

Although it's not surprising nor really popular, I'm giving Harden some love. Put up a casual 49, but also showed some great defensive efforts against Milwaukee, and locked up Giannis when it mattered (fueling the whole rivalry). Able to take a back-seat more comfortably now without getting out of his rhythm

Yup! After Miami shutting down Warren I'll bench TJ, move Luka to SF and put Dame at PG

Gordon Hayward.

Maybe not completely, but I do think he has his bounce and aggressive and quickness back. It might have been a mental thing he needed to get over, but he's had some plays that looks like Utah Gordon. I had kinda' resigned myself to the idea that he was a different player now, but maybe not completely.

For what it's worth, here is the list of the official All-Bubble Teams (brought to you by Kia, of course).  No Celts, but that's OK.  This seems like a pretty fair list.  It was really interesting to see how some of these made pretty significant jumps in their performance.

Kia NBA Player of the Seeding Games
Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers
 

Kia NBA All-Seeding Games First Team
Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns
Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks
Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers
James Harden, Houston Rockets
T.J. Warren, Indiana Pacers
 

Kia NBA All-Seeding Games Second Team
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks
Kawhi Leonard, LA Clippers
Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks
Caris LeVert, Brooklyn Nets
Michael Porter Jr., Denver Nuggets
 

Coach of the Seeding Games
Monty Williams, Phoenix Suns 
Yup
