Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins are the NBA’s Rookies of the Month (as expected)

The top two picks in the 2014 NBA Draft, Andrew Wiggins of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Jabari Parker of the Milwaukee Bucks, are the NBA Rookies of the Month for October/November, the league announced.

Wiggins started out slow, putting up just 7.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.5 steals in two October outings, but he’s since upped his numbers to 12.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 13 games in November.

His most memorable game so far came in a loss to the Sacramento Kings, where he exploded for 29 points, and added five boards, two assists, a block and four steals.

Parker on the other hand normed 9.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in his two October outings. That went up to 12.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 16 November games.

The highlight of his young career so far was when he unloaded 23 points against the Brooklyn Nets.

The two have faced off against each other already this season, as seen in the highlights below:
