No surprise here when we see Kawhi Leonard taking top spot in this list. He’s been extremely dominant this post season and really carrying with expectations, his San Antonio Spurs. James Harden has the most solid average out of everyone in this list mainly due to the fact that if the Rockets want to remain slightly competitive against the Warriors, Harden will need to show up with his A game every contest, and he’s delivered. Lebron’s consistency is keeping up there in this list as he’s following his typical first round route of any opponents in his lane. James is dominating the 1st round of NBA Playoffs like no NBA player has ever done. He’s yet to lose a game since May 2012 and has never lost a 1st round series! The real stunners of this list are Donatas Motiejunas and Jonas Jerebko. Motiejunas’s game has been quite impressive and complementing Harden’s hard work with Dwight Howard’s seemingly lacking offensive presence. The Lithuanian’s double double last game gave the Rockets many options. On another note, Jerebko’s versatile defense helped spark his teammate Isaiah Thomas’s career high 42 pts and mostly, make this series quite interesting.
