After stumbling to inconsistent showings all across the season, Brad Wanamaker decided to pull his socks up when it mattered most. He made himself count in game 1 for Boston Celtics with his astounding 11 point, 6 assist and 5 rebound performance seeing him take his side all the way down to overtime.
Goran Dragic has been in stupendous touch since the league ahs returned. The Miami Heat point guard was at his best in game 1 as well, dropping a well versed 29 point, 4 assist and 7 rebound showing to see him retain his spot in our framework.
No one can say that Tyler Herro is still a fresh name in the league. The way he’s set the league alight is something the best have failed to do this season with the shooting guard doing everything asked of him in game 1 to drop a wordclass 12 point, 9 assist and 11 rebound display.
Marcus Smart’s ability to exploit the corners and midrange region has left almost everyone flabbergasted. And he left Miami Heat flabbergasted as well with a high conversion rate from the deep to deliver 26 points for the side.
Jaylen Brown’s slight dip in form was responsible for Boston failing to get past the Heat in game 1. However, despite being off color, he still managed to end up with a neat 17 points to his name as he utilised his windmills and reverse scoops.
Jayson Tatum won the semi-finals for Boston Celtics and he did everything within his grasp to guide the side to a 1-0 lead in the finals as well. Not only was a force to be reckoned with as an attacking name but accrued 14 defensive rebounds as well to make him a must have pick for us.
Jae Crowder has finally come alive for the Heat. He’s playing some of the best basketball he’s delivered all season long with his ability to backtrack and shoot seeing him end up with 22 points in game 1.
Daniel Theis’ inability to protect his board ended up costing Boston Celtics’ immensely the last time around. However that doesn’t dissuade us from opting for his services with him being a talismanic figure for his club all across the season.
Tatum’s exceptional 30-14 double-double sees him be our star player while Brown is the pro player.
