Article Summary:

Doncic picked up his defense last season, and he once again tortured the Clippers in the playoffs to the tune of 35 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds per game on 40-percent 3-point shooting as Dallas took L.A. to seven games. Over 13 career playoff games, Doncic is averaging 33.5 points, 9.5 assists and 8.8 rebounds.

With more talent around him, Young curbed some of his impulsive 3-point shooting last season, trimming his triple attempts by over three per game.

Young’s 3-point attempts went back up in the playoffs, where, as mentioned, he still shot just 34 percent, but he proved that his shooting, like Doncic, impacts the game far beyond the raw numbers, and there is no denying the knack he has for making huge shots in huge moments, whether it be in clutch minutes or just at particularly crucial junctures of a run or game.
