Once again, this team is so balanced that there could be several picks for this award. Some of the stats: Kendrick Perkins: 6 points, 8 rebounds, 7 blocked shots, and some incredible defense and hustle. (Perk won the Tommy Award) Leon Powe: 10 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block and lots of hustle in 19 minutes. Paul Pierce 18 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists
Pierce came close to a triple double and provided leadership to the second unit as well as the starters.
