For star player, below are more stats to help you select your MVP.


Players to watch out for: (Captain options)

Toronto Raptors:

Kawhi Leonard – He is repeating what Lebron James did to the Warriors in 2016. Warriors are busy marking him on the perimeter, leaving more than one player to limit his prowess, and that’s had left too much space, down on the corners for his teammates.

Kawhi’s numbers:

  • 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: 68.4, 55.4, 56.3, 41.1, 63.9

While in the last three games his numbers read:
Points: 36, 30, 34, 23, 27
Rebounds: 12, 7, 14, 8, 17
Assists: 2, 6, 3, 5, 7


The x-factor for Raptors:

For sure the bench, and Danny Green:

As mentioned, Warriors are leaving too much space on the perimeter. Danny Green took full advantage in the last game where he buried six 3-pointers from different positions.

While Fred VanVleet has been doing wonders of late, showcasing his real worth to the team. He is averaging 11 points per game, 2.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game in the post-season.

——————————————————————————————————————-

Captain option: Stephen Curry

For long, he has been carrying this team on his shoulder in the absence of Kevin Durant. But Raptors shows that sometimes, a player as legendary as Curry can only do so much for his team. His Game-4 efforts of 47 points serve as an exemplary model in that regard. He has been averaging more than 32 points per game in this series.
