Steph Curry (-360): Becoming the first player in Finals history to drop 43 points with 10 rebounds and seven 3-pointers gave Curry such a huge lead that his relative dud in Game 5 (16 points, 8 assist, 7-22 FG, 0-9 from 3) didn’t ding his MVP odds. In fact, he jumped from -160 to -360 with the Warriors taking a vital 3-2 lead. Andrew Wiggins is his only competition to win the award if Golden State wraps up its fourth title since 2015.
Jayson Tatum (+400): Tatum began to take over Game 5 in the third quarter with three 3-pointers, but he struggled in the fourth quarter yet again with 5 points on 1-for-5 FG shooting to post a -15 plus/minus rating. The Celtics are looking for their young leader to light the path and Tatum hasn’t carried the torch consistently in this series.
Jaylen Brown (+1800): With his teammates hesitating early in Game 5, Brown tried to put the Celtics on his back once again. This time his shots weren’t falling, as he went 2-for-10 from the field in the first half and 5-for-18 for the game with 5 turnovers and an 81.6 offensive rating.
Andrew Wiggins (+2000): Wiggins was spectacular in Game 4 with a career-high 16 rebounds to go along with 17 points, and he followed that up with a huge 26-point, 13-rebound performance on a 27.2% usage rate in Game 5 with Boston face-guarding Curry throughout much of the game.
Marcus Smart (+11000): Smart is averaging 20.7 PPG, 4.7 RPG, and 4 APG over his last three outings in these Finals, but he’s shooting 38% from the field in the fourth quarter and the Celtics are 1-2 in those contests. His defense on Curry improved considerably in Game 5.
Klay Thompson (+13000): After shooting 30% from the floor over the first two games of the Finals, Klay is shooting 44% from the field and 41% from deep while averaging 21.3 PPG over the last three games.
Draymond Green (+25000): Green has set the tone with his defense over the Warriors’ last two wins and he contributed offensively with 8 points and 6 assists in Game 5.
