Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers
Despite tallying a measly total of 7 rebounds in the his last two outings, the seven-time All-Star continues his onslaught at both ends of the floor against the Nuggets. The versatile big man started Game 4 with a perfect 7 of 7 shooting, and finished the game with 34 points, along with 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals. With his spectacular dominance, the 6” 10’ forward is on pace of marching to his first ever Finals appearance.
LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers
After his playoff appearance streak ended during his first season with the Lakers, King James is now one win away from his 10th Finals appearance. The three-time champ put up 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists as the Lakers took a massive 3-1 series lead. Putting all his doubters behind, the three-time Finals MVP will look to end the 10-year title drought of the Lakeshow.
Rajon Rondo, Los Angeles Lakers
The one-time champ might not be the type of player who will drop 20 or 30 a game, but he definitely is a game-changer. With his excellent court vision and top-of-the-class basketball I.Q, Rondo continues to become a huge contributor and a big factor in the recent wins of the Lakers. After tallying 11 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 dimes in the Game 4 win against the Nuggets, Rondo is now one assist shy from passing Scottie Pippen in the 8th spot of the All-Time playoff assists leaders.
Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets
After another spectacular outing from the 23-year-old guard. the Blue Arrow continues to become the go-to-guy of the Nuggets. Murray amassed 32 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, and 1 block as the Nuggets found themselves again on another 3-1 series deficit. The promising Nuggets team looks to solidify their magical run in this year’s playoffs as they once again try to come back, and make history as the only team to successfully climb a 3-1 deficit in three series on the same playoff run.
