Players to watch out for: (Captain options)

Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry –
He gave his absolute best in the last game, scoring a magnificent 47 points. But without his all-star teammates, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, he had too much to do in the offensive department. There’s no denying that he is one of the best of all-time.

Numbers that matter:

  • Stephen Curry’s numbers:
    • Points Per Game:
      Regular Season – 27.3 (6th best this season)
      Playoffs (2019) – 28.5 (5th best in the playoffs)
    • Assists Per Game:
      Regular Season – 5.2 (37th best amongst all players this season)
      Playoffs (2019) – 5.6 (13th best in the playoffs)
    • Rebounds Per Game:
      Regular Season – 5.3(97th on the list)
      Playoffs (2019) – 6.3 (36th best)

Points earned in the last five games: 70.1, 40.6, 47.5, 70.1, 42,7


While in the last five games his numbers read:
Points: 47, 23, 34, 37, 36
Rebounds: 8, 3, 5, 13, 6
Assists: 7, 4, 5, 11, 3


Warriors’ X-Factor:

Klay Thompson –
If Warriors are to win the game, he has to play. His absence was quite evident in Game-3 as Warriors had nothing to offer from the perimeter, except Curry who more often than not was being caged.

If he plays, he can draw the defense away from Curry, leaving his Splash brother with space to weave his magic.

Toronto Raptors:

@USA Today


Kawhi Leonard –
Favorite to win this season’s NBA finals MVP. Though Stephen Curry will have a say for the finals MVP, it’s a foregone conclusion that behind Toronto Raptors’ first ever ride to the NBA finals, he has been a force.

Numbers that matter:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 26.6 (Seventh best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019)31.9 (3rd best in the playoffs)
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 3.3 (87th best on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 3.8 (29th best in the playoffs)
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 7.3 (50th best on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 8.8 (13th best)

Points earned in the last five games: 55.4, 56.3, 41.1, 63.9, 61.9

—————————————————————————————————————————–

While in the last five games his numbers read:
Points: 30, 34, 23, 27, 35
Rebounds: 7, 14, 8, 17, 7
Assists: 6, 3, 5, 7, 9


Toronto’s X-Factor:

There have been too many in the playoffs. Fred VanVleet looks like he is playing at another level, while Danny Green erupted into a being which he hardly managed to bring out in the 2019 playoffs.

Kyle Lowry, sometimes, plays like a leader, taking control of the scoring duties whenever the situation demanded.


Combination 1:
PG: VanVleet, Quinn Cook, Stephen Curry (C)
SG: Danny Green
SF: Andre Iguodala
PF: Pascal Siakam, Draymond Green
C: Marc Gasol

Combination 2:

PG: VanVleet, Stephen Curry (C)
SG: Danny Green, Klay Thompson
SF: Andre Iguodala
