NBA Awards Odds 2013-14: Predictions for the Season's Home Stretch

If the 2013-14 NBA season were a race track, we'd be coming around the final corner and headed for the finish line right about now. No team has more than nine games to play before its regular-season schedule is complete.

Even at this advanced stage of the campaign, every major award that the Association will soon hand out remains in play. LeBron James and Kevin Durant are still battling for MVP votes. Roy Hibbert's no longer the overwhelming favorite for Defensive Player of the Year that he once was, thanks to the Indiana Pacers' recent slide. The Rookie of the Year race is as competitive as ever, if only because this year's field lacks any true standouts.

The difficulty of choosing just one of the league's first-year performers, though, pales in comparison to that of sorting through the myriad worthy names in play for Most Improved, Sixth Man and Coach of the Year.

It's been several months since yours truly last handicapped the competition with equestrian lingo. With the curtain set to drop on the regular season in two weeks, now seems as good a time as any to see who currently stands where in pursuit of each of the NBA's six major pieces of hard-earned hardware.

Stats up to date through games played on Tuesday, April 1.
