By Chris Forsberg
Celtics second-year guard Avery Bradley finished eighth in the balloting for Most Improved Player.
Bradley earned 36 points behind 12 total votes (four votes in each category -- first, second and third place). Orlando's Ryan Anderson won the award at 260 points, while Milwaukee's Ersan Ilyasova (159 points) and Minnesota's Nikola Pekovic (104 points) rounded out the top 3.
A panel of 121 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada voted for the award. Players were awarded 5 points for each first-place vote, 3 points for each second-place vote and 1 point for each third-place vote received.
