Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon has been named the Sixth Man of the Year for the 2016-17 season, edging out his fellow candidates Lou Williams and Andre Iguodala.

Gordon averaged 16.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game through 75 games under head coach Mike D’Antoni.

Playing a key part in the team’s three-and-D mantra, Gordon made 3.3 three-point field goals per game at a 37.2 percent clip, while netting 84 percent of his attempts from the line — fueling the Rockets to a 55-27 record on the season.

Gordon’s dynamic three-point shooting and his aggressive drives to the basket made the Rockets a potent team at all times, even with the starters on the bench.

His 75 games played were the most since his rookie season, able to show what he can do with a clean bill of health and an offense that favors his volume-shooting instincts.

“I’m glad that my mom came down and my dad came down, they’ve been my best supporters and it’s been a blessing to ride this ride with them and it’s just been an unbelievable year,” said Gordon as he accepted his award.
