Players to watch out for: (Captain options)

Kawhi Leonard – Golden State Warriors had a blueprint about how to stop the opponents’ best players. Look for Damian Lillard and James Harden dropping effect in the last two series. Kawhi Leonard was at the receiving end of the same tactics from Steve Kerr as he employed a two-man strategy on him.

But it left space for his teammates, which the likes of Pascal Siakam took advantage of in the match.

Expect Kawhi to have more impact in this match.

Kawhi’s Numbers:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 26.6 (Seventh best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019)31.2 (3rd best in the playoffs)
    Against Milwaukee Bucks – 37.0
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 3.3 (87th best on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 3.8 (29th best in the playoffs)
    Against Milwaukee Bucks – 4.0
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 7.3 (50th best on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 8.8 (13th best)

    Kawhi Leonard – Dream11 Points earned in the last five games:
    63.9, 61.9, 44.9, 58.3, 44.6

    While in the last five games his numbers read:
    Points: 27, 35, 19, 36, 31
    Rebounds: 17, 7, 7, 9, 8, 9
    Assists: 7, 9, 1, 5, 5, 2

Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry –
Kevin Durant‘s injury forced Stephen Curry to take the reins of this team once again, and now people and the NBA pundits have gone to the extent that perhaps Warriors are better off with Durant. For reasons that Curry is laying unbelievably well, like a candidate for the finals MVP.

Stephen Curry’s numbers:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 27.3 (6th best this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 27.3 (5th best in the playoffs)
    Against Toronto Raptors – 25.0
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 5.2 (37th best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 5.6 (13th best in the playoffs)
    Against Portland Trail Blazers – 5.7
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 5.3(97th on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 6.3 (36th best)

    Dream11 NBA Points earned in the last five games: 37, 36, 37, 36, 33

    While in the last five games his numbers read:
    Points: 37, 36, 37, 36, 33
    Rebounds: 13, 6, 8, 6, 5
    Assists: 11, 3, 8, 7, 4


    Warriors’ X-Factor – It’s Draymond Green. One of the most versatile players, and perhaps one of the best defensive players of all time, Green will be key inside the paint when the Raptors have the possession. He will bring the points into the game as well.
