*Stats from Regular season*
PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 49
Jokic after having an MVP-like season has even turned it further up after racking up points after points. His talent for steering a team home proves that he may be the best leader in the game right now. Jokic was unstoppable in Game 2, notching up 38 points. For his contributions, he can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Lillard is one of the best scorers to play the game and continues to be a constant team contributor even if the Playoffs success is missing. The guard has been in incomprehensible touch during the series, and in Game 2 was at his best, racking up 42 points and 10 assists.
Michael Porter Jr.:
Without Porter, the Nuggets could have been swept in the series and his rise in the second half of the season has helped fill the void left by Jamal Murray’s injury to a certain extent. After an impressive 25 points performance in Game 1, the Forward poured in 18 points in Game 2.
CJ is the type of guard who can accumulate 20 points like he is eating his breakfast. The guard has shown a variety of moves and continues to be a nightmare to defend. He collected 21 points and 6 rebounds in the loss.
