Top 10 NBA basketball players in the Playoffs this season (Part 1)

NBA Playoffs this season is gradually coming to an end. Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets were the first two teams to win tickets to play in the regional finals. Let’s see which stars are showing themselves at this year’s Playoffs.

1. LeBron James

There is no question that James is at the top of this list. Without the numbers, this year’s Playoffs can see that ‘the King’ is the most outstanding player. The leading number of points scored with an average of 34.3 points per game at this year’s Playoffs shows how well James is carrying the Cavaliers.

In the most important moments of the match, James is always the name that knows how to speak. The two buzzer beaters that brought 2 decisive victories are the clearest evidence. This shows that the bravery and experience of James is really extremely respectable.

Defeating Raptors, the No. 1 Eastern seed team easily made James’s achievement table even more brilliant. It was James’s high form that made the Cavaliers the first team to advance to the regional finals.

2. James Harden

James Harden continued to maintain a good performance from the Regular Season to become a major factor in helping Rockets succeed in the Playoffs. He is leading the Rockets in both points scored and assists in this round. He is also in the top 4 players scoring the most average per match, only behind LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook with 28.5 points per match.

Although facing the team with the highest rated player in the NBA this year, Utah Jazz in the semi-finals, but the Rockets with the guidance of Harden still have no difficulty beating this opponent with a score of 4- first. Now the remaining frontier gate in their final will most likely be the No. 1 opponent they aim to defeat this season – defending champion Golden State Warriors in the Western finals.

3. Anthony Davis

After a brilliant performance with the Pelicans to beat the Blazers 4-0, Davis continued to play well in the semi-finals although his team faced the No. 1 candidate for the Golden State championship. Warriors and Davis were followed closely by the candidate for the best player of the Draymond Green season.

He is second only to LeBron James in terms of scoring ability with an average of 29.6 points per game. He also ranked 2nd in terms of rebound ability with 12.8 rebounds per match and 3rd in block ability with 2.3 blocks per match.
