5. Siakam’s Game 1 excellence
Surprise, surprise, it’s yet another Siakam performance that will remain in the history books. And this time, we may be talking about the craziest one of all.
Spicy P made sure that the 2019 NBA Finals tipped off with the best way possible for the Toronto Raptors, scoring 32 points on 14-of-17 shooting from the field.
Additionally, Siakam managed to score 11 consecutive field goals, quickly becoming the first player to score 30 points on 80 percent shooting in the championship round since the great Shaquille O’Neal.
Throughout the season, Siakam was the perfect Robin to Kawhi’s Batman, as head coach Nick Nurse is more than certain to include him even more to the team’s offensive schemes starting next season.
